How does your garden grow? New Altered Tin Supplies & SALE

Filed under Altered Tins, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

It’s time for some new Altoids Tin supplies! There are FIVE new chipboard sets today PLUS a big bunch of tiny garden supplies (metal and resin and foliage, too)!

But we have to start with this clever and beautiful “How does your garden grow?” Altered Tin by Shannon Cooper.

The inside of the tin, shown at right, uses the Altoids Shelf Insert – 2-1/4 Inch Wide (one of the new insert sets). Custom cut to fit inside a tin: it fits snugly against the bottom of the tin to create a little ledge or shelf (with a flat section beneath for a label or more area to decorate).

“Here’s the inside of the tin with the garden cottage and the smallest wheelbarrow you’ve ever seen! It’s a hefty metal miniature painted with acrylic craft paints. It got a quick scrub with some dish soap to remove any mold-release residue before painting. Next to the wheelbarrow on the right is a Quarter Scale Antiqued Window Box under a Tiny Trellis. So small, so cute!”

Note that wheelbarrow, window box and trellis are all new today. Also note: the cute cover to the tin is shown far below in the sale section.

The SEVEN items shown at left and below are new AND in Shannon’s project! (The Quarter Scale Wheelbarrow at left plus the 6 in 2 rows below the preview photo of Shannon’s tutorial. I love those tiny shingles she made for the top and front of the pediment/roof shown at right!)

Great job, Shannon! Read more and see more photos in Shannon’s blog post. Here’s her supply list (and remember that all these supplies are in today’s sale collection — more info below)!
