Liesl von Schokolat graduated from 8th grade last week. She's made me a proud auntie. I bought her a necklace, but I thought that I'd rather give it to her in some sort of funky box instead of the usual ugly white box. So I pulled out an empty mint tin and started playing around. First, I painted it black, then I glued on some decorative paper. On the lid, I put stickers of her initials and inside, I collaged some stuff from an old book I had. I gave it a few coats of collage medium and Voila! A mini jewelry box.
