I made this tin for thisbirdsabsurd (who made me a fabulous moon gazing hare). It's bigger than the standard altoid tin approx 31/2 x 5 inches.
The raven at the top I drew on extra heavy cardboard, cut out and painted. The base is an old brass candlestick I found in a junk shop. As well as the wee glass knob and pocket watch.
I love junk shops...

I just love this, and the hare she sent you as well.  Lucky partners, both of you!

Wow, it is so elegant!  I love the gold and black color scheme!  So pretty!!  I'm quite partial to ravens myself, as well.

Oh it's fantastic alright!  So lucky to have received this - I suggested crows or ravens as a theme and cackle came through with flying colors!  Smiley  You must have blisters on your fingers from cutting out that little raven - he's perfeectly done!
  Thank you again!

It's gorgeous! I love how the top crow is dangling down the little gear. Or is he hoisting it up?

When I made it, my thought was dangling down, but it seems to work both ways.
