Sarah Anderson created this wonderful Assemblage by altering an old Altoid Tin

She says:

I just love working in a tiny format using a collage style and this gorgeous stamp from Crafty Individuals gave me my starting point for this project. Vintage typewriters speak to me of times when written notes abounded, unlike the emails of today. I distressed my painted tin with the sanding tool we were using whilst decorating, and also bashed it with a hammer to give it that old, worn look that a typewriter ribbon tin may now have. The insides of envelopes make great collage fodder. The tin stores tiny tags and cards, coloured and stamped with a variety of inks, and finished with Small Talk stickers. These can then be popped in an envelope to a friend or slipped in their pocket for some warm, creative encouragement. 


This project first featured in the February 2017 issue of Craft Stamper magazine
