We held a workshop a few weeks ago using mint tins that were donated to us by one of our generous parents. I so enjoy the challenge of coming up with projects when we get a large donation of a potential material. Since I am a big fan of collage and I love boxes, I thought it might be a good idea to combine them.
With just some glue, scissors, gorgeous papers and a few old calendars (which are a great resource for images), we created little scenes inside the mint tins. Using some pop up book technique we made them three dimensional. This is such a simple project that brings so much joy when I gaze upon them.
