So, as it usually starts...I saw a neat project that someone else makes and sells, and wanted one. I didn't want the ones I saw though...I wanted images that spoke to me. What did I see? Tins the size of an Altoid tin with a fun image covered with resin on top and filled with fun knitting notions. I immediately thought of making one with one of my photos from Venice and then making a project bag with the same image. But then...I was on Pinterest when I saw other uses for decorated tins. And decided,without ever having made one before...that I would make one for each of my friends for Christmas. Without knowing if I could really do it. Crazypants!
So, I scoured the internet and couldn't find a tutorial or anything so I had to figure it out as I went. First step? To Mod Podge the images and get them ready for the resin. The Mod Podge seals the paper and makes it resistant to liquid. Stay tuned for more!
