I created this altered Altoids tin for my partner @LovelyMiss in the Nerd Games swap. I knew she liked space and science-y stuff, and I wanted to do something unique. I did a google search for altered tins with a space theme and didn’t find much.
So I went with an astronomy theme. I made all of the miniature items here from scratch. The telescope was my favorite. The book features tiny reproductions of pages from Galileo’s notes! (Sorry these shots are quite dark… terrible lighting!)
Excerpts from the poem, The Old Astronomer To His Pupil, by Sarah Williams.

Thanks for looking!
