Under Lock & Key

Over at Out of a Hat Creations this week they have a fabulous theme of locks and keys.  ABAC also have the theme of mainly black.

I used the Sizzix box candy drawer die to make the box and covered it in clock face / time paper which I picked up cheap last time I was at AftH.

I encased the box in silver chain and added the lock and key.

There is nothing inside as you are not meant to be able to get it open!!!

*** Out of the Hat are having another mousetrap challenge in the next couple of weeks.  If you would like to take part, but don't have a mousetrap, please feel free to email me (click button on sidebar) with your information and I will gladly post one out to you so you can join in ***

Hi Sam. The chain and the paper go perfectly. Y'know we all make boxes that are for opening and yet they look fabulous just as they are. Great idea and a wonderful project. Super photo and staging. Thank you for sharing with the Hatters again this week. Thank you also for your kind offer about the mousetraps. Have a lovely weekend.
Regards Florence xx

Great box Sam (I really want this die!) and the papers are perfect for our challenge this time. What I really love are the chains and little keys and locks - they add a great edge to this piece.
Thanks for joining us again at Anything But A Card.
