Vintage Sewing Kit - Altered Altoid Tin - Guest Designer

Greetings everyone! Becky (MPLSBetty) here and I am a guest designer today for the SP Stamps Blog. I have many of the SP&Company stamp sets, so I had a lot of inspiration to draw from. Normally a cardmaker, I wanted to make an altered project. I love repurposing items and Altoid Tins make a very fun and quick project. I used two SP&Company Stamp sets for this project: Sewing Chic and Stitchery Doo.


I first stamped the ornate frame from the Sewing Chic stamp set on a piece of Basic Grey Basic Manila patterned paper. Next, I created an epoxy element using the spool of thread from the same stamp set.


I first stamped the spool on the Basic Grey paper and then cut it out. 


Next I covered the entire spool with Versamark embossing ink and embossed it three times using Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.


I stamped a few more images on the cover and adhered Cosmo Cricket letter stickers on the front of the tin. Next I adhered the enameled spool on the the tin with a hot glue gun.


I added some trim around the base of the tin.


I decorated the inside using some of the other Sewing Chic stamps embossed in white on paper from DCWV's Mariposa paper stack. All I need to finish the project is to place a travel size sewing kit inside.



I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you to use your SP&Company stamps and repurpose some items around your home. Happy Stamping!
