Grim Little Boxes

Sometimes, in the middle of the sunshine and the dancing fairies, I feel like making something a bit grim. It's not a bad thing. It's not a sad or angry thing. It's just that once in a while a bit of darkness is a nice contrast to the airy fairy.

At the post-halloween sales last year I picked up some wee wooden boxes and a couple of weeks ago I gussied them up with Graphic45 papers and embellishments from my stash.

This blingy skull with heart shaped eyes and rhinestones has been in my stash for AGES! I plonked it on top of a metal keyhole, added some metal brads and wings.

I think it makes a mighty nice frontispiece!.

And these dudes! I love them, but they too have been sitting, waiting to be used. This seemed like a perfect little project for them.

One more wee grim box, this one with a surprise inside.

A vial of Devil's Shoestring to trip up bad luck and provide protection. 
Break in case of emergency!

Hope you're having summer fun and that you don't need one iota of luck.

(I just looked up what an 'iota' is... it is the ninth letter of the greek alphabet and I'm more confused than before.)
