Spooky Little Box

The weather is starting to chill and my mind is turning to thoughts of pumpkins, witches and Halloween. It seems appropriate that today is all about Steampunk Spells on the Graphic 45 blog. I've been placed in fine company because my little altered box is included!


A small wooden dollar store box transformed into a mini Steampunk booth of potions and charms. It rather reminds me of something that might be found in a mad gentleman’s shelf of curiosities.


Aren't those feet amazing?!?! My fabulous junk patron sent me those (p.s. I love you!).


The vertical piece is the top of an ornate key. Those little curly bits at it's base? Discarded brad prongs. Waste not, want not!


Hop over to the G45 blog for more photos AND spy some other faboo projects made with the creeptacular Steampunk Spells collection.

Steampunk Spells - Beware
