Steampunk Box

What a day - can I just say I'm glad it's over!

Anyway - onto the post - I had purchased 8 wooden cigar boxes on ebay and this is the first one I've altered.  I took it all apart, applied black gesso, G45 papers, and metal pieces on the top and a clock key for the handle - and 2 new hinges on the back side.

This box will hold some odds and ends - just have to find a place for this new box!

Box Recipe:

Box:  Wooden Cigar Box from Ebay
Mediums:  Finnabair Art Basics Heavy Black Gesso; Finnabair Art Basics Soft Matte Gel
Papers:  Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Collection Papers and Chipboards
Misc.:  Tim Holtz Clock Key; Tim Holtz Vial
Metals:  Finnabair and Flying Unicorn

Thanks for taking a peek!  Have a great week-end.
