This Found Object Sandwich project was created by Thomas Mann using the FOS kit. Before you start creating your own Found Object Sandwich, put together a collection of your favorite unique ephemera. Family treasures and flea market finds are great! You can use real family pictures or collage sheet images-whatever inspires you!
Thomas Mann cleverly displayed the finished sandwich project inside an altered cigar box. The lid of the cigar box has a section cut out in the shape of a rectangle with a sheet of acrylic covering the cut out section. The edges of the acrylic sheet have a decorative finish-similar to the edges of a postage stamp. To cut the edges of the acrylic, try using the jewelers saw. On the inside of the cigar box a wood block was attached to the center and then a sheet of metal was attached on top of the wood. The metal sheet was then spray painted red. When the Found object sandwich is completed-you can attach a magnet to the back of and then use it as a magnet on the red metal sheet.
