I got this tin of mints at Highland Light. It's really small, way smaller than an Altoids tin.
I wasn't sure what do make with it till I was sorting through some extra copies of pictures I had processed recently. I selected this pic of the Bourne Bridge, taken from Mass Maritime Academy. I lined the sides and 'ceiling' with the parts of the photo that surrounded the piece I used on the back. Then I separately cut out part of the rip rap rocks and used double stick foam tape to make it 3D. I used sandpaper for the floor/bottom, then added a couple small beach stones and 2 tiny beach glass chips. Finally, I used white cord around the top edge. The cover of the tin still slides easily over it.
Here's a sampling of all the glitter ball ornaments made for my shows; I did 12. These are lots of fun to make but adding the rhinestones can get a little tedious.
I got this fake pumpkin and the rhinestone designs at Michael's Crafts, on sale. This probably took all of 5 minutes but it looks good!
I painted another fake one and covered it with Mod Podge then added the rhinestones till I ran out.
I am currently still working on the white one...I'd hoped to have it done by now but I got sidetracked over the weekend because we were visiting with hubby's fam, son and some of my friends from high school. I'm hoping to get it done today.
