So I made this accordian-folded book to fit inside a reconstructed Altoids tin. For my final project in art last semester.

Here is the tin:



The front:



The back:



Some that I really like:











I hope you enjoy them!

I wrote all the little couplets myself, and each correspond with a picture. I especially had fun coming up with odd names!

mercury_quirks: I decorated the top with paper and ribbon. Then I did the title with those neat little transfer letters that scrap-bookers use. The little red things are buttons. They're sewn on because the glue was not making them stick.

Great job! I love abecedariums (but I've never seen one in an Altoids tin!)
