So a group of friends and the hubby and I packed up the car and went to Santa Fe for Labor Day. Upon returning I wanted to make a little memento for everyone. I used the idea from Mark Montano's "Big Ass Book of Crafts" to create a 3D picture (choosing layers from an individual photo and cutting them out and elevating each layer in turn). I happily reused some old boxes from dried apricots and plenty of sequins.

I wanted to make them look like tiny shrines (as I had seen here on craftster) as a tribute to Mexican Folk Art while in New Mexico. Here's the first one:
