I have been driving myself crazy trying to figure out what to do with the other half of those mint tins I use to make the resin necklaces.The are too deep to make necklaces and so at last I figured it out.Ornaments!!Inspired by the same wonderful images,I created these mini window shadow box tins.I also used premium paper,chipboard,metal frames,transparency,glitter and swarovski crystals.

Le moins que l'on puisse dire c'est que vous ne devez pas vous ennuyer !!! Quelle créativité pour un résultat où il n'y a rien à dire, c'est beau tout simplement !!! Mais, pour arriver à faire quelque chose de beau, il faut déjà se lever de bonne heure !!!

Very nice! I love the bird one. I looks nice like a jewelry box or music box. :-)

Yeah! have you try doing a music box? I don't know if it's too hard but it would go very lovely with your style!
