I was inspired to make this wand for a personal swap. The branch came from my Great Grama's oak tree. I wish I would have gotten a close up of the actual wand! The wood is beautiful.
I made the box using cardboard, Styrofoam, tissue, paper, paint, and fabric.
I used the tissue to give the box a faux leather look.

Here is the inside of the box with the wand.

Here is a pic of the wand nestled in it's silk.

Thanks for looking. Wink

I may not be perfect, but I'm so close it's almost eerie.

The wand is beautiful, and the presentation box is lovely.  The faux leather finish is so cool.
