Altered Altoid Tins

Often, I'm given empty used Altoid tins to create Agape for Chrysalis Weekend  however this one came from being a volunteer at our local hospital!  Woohoo - another art canvas.
Since the sticker wouldn't release, I covered it with some of Carol R.'s marbled paper which is more colorful in person.  Next Isaiah 49:16 was stamped onto the paper and
also over the sponged painting over the also stubborn sticker on the inside. 
Price tags for my Quilted Art are inserted and a  label on side of tin is added.
Other tins I've repurposed for myself at other times include the yellow one which I just covered the sticker with flower stickers.  The blue batik fabric covered one is a portable sewing kit which the green cat batik fabric covered one with painted side accents (you can tell I use them) hold cabone rings.
Simple, useful purposing  yet fun art.

Your quilts are beautiful! I love repurposed items and I never thought about Altoid tins. Brilliant! Thanks for stopping by earlier.
