Mint Tin Upcycled Mini Album
Happy vacations photos should be shared, right? Not stuck in cell phones or on computers! Free your pictures and show ‘em off.
To make a mini photo album out of a mint tin, you only need a few supplies: a mint tin, Mod Podge, double sided tape, a map or paper, stuff for embellishing like a small piece of ribbon and a button and most importanty… a small stack of vacation photos. Print them out (3″ x 2 ” size) in batches with your home printer. You don’t even need photo paper… regular white printer paper or cardstock works great.
Cut out a piece of map or paper larger than the lid of the tin.
Paint the lid with Mod Podge.
Adhere paper. When dry, use a nail file to file around edges– making paper fit perfectly.
Measure, cut and attach a small piece of ribbon with hot glue.
Use the insert from the mint tin to trace and cut out paper for interior.
Use double sided tape to adhere paper to inside of tin if desired. Print and cut out some 3′ x 2′ photos.
If you want, embellish top with stickers and a button and toss in purse.
Next time someone wants to take a peek at your vacation photos, you’re set!
