I should just post things here all the time...

The astounding Knickertwist picked me to partner with her for the Important SOB swap.  I made her a little badge, and I wanted it to have a box to lay in.  SO I made this....


The top

The front

Side...It looks like i only have a pic of one side...

The back

Inside lid

Underneath the box.

The story I sent to her was this... "I entrusted one of my minions to learn alchemy, which is why this package will see the post so late.  Minions are not smart at the best of times...
Unfortunately he was unable to close the portal that was opened.  A warding was placed upon it.  He swears it is safe.  If it starts sprouting monsters or some such, please let me know ASAP"

The box was a tin for a VCR tape.  I used tissue to cover some parts of the raised tin.  The designs are all drawn on with a hot glue gun.  The lock is a glued on brad and the legs are wooden balls.  So just gotta say, If you do this, be VERY CAREFULL.  All ways keep a glass of ice water near by while using a hot glue gun.  Don't make me post a pic of the burn I got!  I don't know if a low melt one would stay adhered over time...*cough*..where was I...Paint.  I used Martha Stewart craft paint to decorate the tin after I glued all the stuff on.  This paint ROCKS.  I used the gold, pearl purple, and glitter paints.  I gave it an over coat of a glitter gloss I have that is Harry Potter themed. 

I had fun doing this and used it in another swap that has yet to arrive...
Thanks for looking Grin

This is neat, suereal! I love the texture of the glue - it looks kind of mystical Smiley. Sorry you burned yourself though. Bummer. Oh, and so clever of you to use an old VCR box!! I'm going to keep my eye out for those at the thrift store.

Thanks LimeRiot. That was what I was going for. IT was for Knickertwist after all Grin. And it will be a scar I bare with crafty pride *grin*...I'm covered in them Grin And I'm controlling some kind of glue gun possesion right now.  I want to cover everything in glue at the mo. This particular one was a Warner Bro. tin
