My cubicle-neighbor gave me an empty, tiny Altoids tin a while back because she knows how much I like tiny things.
Lately she's been having a really rough time in both her personal and professional life, and I've been trying to think of something I could do to cheer her up. When I saw this challenge go up, something clicked and I knew exactly what I could do for her.
(And so I finally took the plunge to make an account, too.)
This is the tin - my hands are pretty small; I think the tin dimensions are around 1.75" x 2.5" x.75". I intentionally left the outside nondescript so she could actually carry it around in her purse without worrying about damaging it.
Here is a view from a little above so you can see the drawing in the bottom of the tin a little better:
And finally a view from the side, showing the construction:
I made this entirely at work so it's all stuff I had at my desk; black pen, blue and yellow highlighters, copy paper, and white glue. The sunflower stem on the big flower is a piece of yarn off of a scarf that I use as a wrist support for my mousepad. I <3 free crafts!
She wasn't at work today but I can't wait to see what she thinks of it tomorrow.
If anyone is interested in a tute, let me know and I will write one up.
