Mini Altoids Tin Resin Locket with Accordion Mini Album

 I love my puppies, so I thought what better way to commemorate them than to create a cairn terrier locket out of a mini Altoids tin.

Mini Altoid tin
Drill with Small Bit
Black Acrylic Paint
Fingernail file
2- 1 Inch Head Pins
Cameo Frame mold
Amazing Mold Putty
Amazing Casting Resin
Rub n Buff
Sketch Paper or Card Stock
Small Photos
Optional: Black Resin Dye

Sand a mini Altoids tin with a fingernail file, to rough up the surface for paint.
Using a small bit, drill a small hole in the top and the bottom of the tin that will be used to hang from the necklace and to attach a beaded tassel later.
Paint the tin black and accent with silver rub n buff.
If you are making your own cameo, see steps below. If using a cameo you already have, cast your frame and glue pieces together.
To make accordion booklet, cut sketch paper or cardstock 2" tall and about 12" long.
Fold in an accordion manner every 1 1/2", alternating the direction of the fold....mountain, valley, mountain, valley.... etc..
Glue your images inside the booklet, fold up and place inside the tin.
The booklet will fit snug inside so there is no need to glue it inside the tin.

Attach beads or beaded tassel to the bottom. Add to a chain and enjoy!

Until next time..
Craft Your Own Way!
