For my Back to Hogwarts swap partner, I wanted to create a Gryffindor item that didn't scream GRYFFINDOR and an aged, passed down (or treasure you stumbled upon in a second-hand shop in Diagon Alley) look.  So I picked up one of those plain boxes at the craft store, and I beat, stained, battered, painted, sanded, oiled, rubbed with ash, and much more to create this aged look.  It was fun to make, and I was rather happy with the results. Grin  (Also, I figured that since I was sending a jewelry box that I should fill it with jewelry. Wink)

And because I took a bunch of pics, I reducioed them; click small pics to activate engorio charm.*

*yes, I'm one of those HP crafters! Cool

Thanks for peeking! Grin

This is so lovely!! I really like that the design is subtle. It seems like something that a Gryffindor student would actually have in their room Smiley. Well done!!

I love the subtlety of this, not in your face HP, but you know what it references all the same.  Love that you filled it up with jewelery for your partner.
