Stamp on Metal Challenge

 This is for the Simon Says Stamp and show some metal challenge.
 I am so thrilled I came up with an upcycled useful item. I used an Altoid tin, sanded it off, and made it into a pretty sewing kit. I have this wrapping paper that has print on top of foil and when sanded a little it makes a wonderful base for stamping. The image inside the kit is stamped on that paper. I think it looks like a old tin print photo.
 Yes this art is on and in metal with a sweet metal heart accent. Just looking at this will make it more fun to get that needle and thread out for mending!

This is really cool. I have a little sewing kit in an old Sucrets tin. I wonder if I should alter it. Hmmm. Now you have me thinking about ANOTHER project. LOL

I used to keep a mini sewing kit in my desk at the office...wish I'd thought of one as pretty as this one, makes mending more enjoyable!
