I made this for my partner in the Wicked Vices Altoid Tin Swap. Apparently it's arrived a little worse for wear Undecided but I suppose it's safe to show off now.

One of the vices that my partner picked was secretiveness, this is the Keeper of Secrets.



The top collage sits under convex glass.



Where's the altoid tin? Our lady pops off (she's held on with magnets) to reveal cubbies filled with little secret treasures.



The wooden star that is the base is the bottom of a box I got from Michaels for six cents. The vertical 'stem' is three chess pieces stacked atop one another. The doodad at the very top is from a reuse centre and cost a whopping 10 cents. Inside the tin are a stack of words cut from books, pen nibs, stamps, a tooth, a doll hand, moss, a stone, buttons, a feather, a tiny house.

Um, this is amazing, as usual! I love the convex glass piece...and the fact that the altoid tin pops off! I have those exact same porcelain doll hands floating around somewhere Smiley And the branches surrounding it--what a cool idea. Six cents for the box? Love it!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
