Steampunk Treasure Box


I made this fab treasure box from scratch thanks to Jean.  It was actually quite easy to do in the end but I did have the advantage of a great set of instructions and a video demo.  Once constructed I used graphic 45 steampunk paper to cover.  I added loads of steampunkery embellishments, spinners, chain, watch parts, a lock  and a safety pin charm.  The trim is one of the new TH lace dies coloured with vintage photo distress stain.


The top has a piece of TH glassine paper which has been run through the clockworks cuttlebug embossing folder.  The edges were sealed with TH sticky tissue tape.  I coloured the silver metal corner piece with old brass lumiere paint.  The bottom left piece is from a clay mould and was coloured with metallic perfect pearls, the middle piece is a bronze coloured clock charm and the bottom cog is from a 7 gypsies set.  And lastly, the handle is a mini light bulb!!!!

I'm really pleased with the way it came out, and most astonished that the lid fitted the box.  That must be down to Jean and the precise measurements - thanks Jean
