A tiny tin craft

A tin of mystifying what?

While I was looking for some papery things to put on yesterday’s craft supplies, I stumbled on THIS little mint tin. I’m not quite sure where I got this from, but it is perfect for the craft I have in mind. I’ll use that other tin for something else. I don’t have to make any changes or additions to this little container.

For the last little while, I’ve been trying to come up with something to do with those little polaroids that I take every now and then. They are so cute, but mostly end up in drawers, never seeing the light of day. I started looking around for stuff to make, found lots of corny scrapbooking stuff, and stumbled upon some altered Altoids tins on good, old Pinterest and then on flickr. These are mini dioramas. So cute! And I can add the photos in a tiny album.

This is as far as I’ve gotten on the inside.

The insideI tore some pages out of a Harlequin Romance novel (blue cover = no racy parts in the book at all.) and glued it in and some pieces from some reproduction Valentine wrapping paper. At least I hope it’s reproduction. Nah. I’m sure it’s new that looks old. And that’s as far as I got. Oh, I rubbed a little bit of brown ink on it as well.

I’ll leave it to dry and add some more layers on tomorrow or the next day.

I’m trying to be more patient with these things than trying to rush them through.

Really. Trying.
