Other Mother Jewelry Box

I had no idea what category this belonged in, but this is a jewelry box I made for my swap partner.
It's supposed to resemble the Other Mother's box from the movie, but I accidentally cut some pieces the wrong size, and ended up adding the white clay around the edges...for a creepy bone-like effect. The inside is lined with red velvet fabric, and the drawer is decoupaged with tissue paper.

It didn't turn out quite as I had expected, but I'm proud of myself for actually finishing it, b/c I have a hard time finishing a project before starting on something new...

Thanks for looking! Criticisms are welcome Smiley

Coraline is probably one of my favorite movies of all time, so I am loving this project right now  Grin
They should definitely make a Coraline music box. I would pay a fortune for it. xD

Coraline is a great movie. This jewelery box looks amazing. I love the striping and all the little details you added. I especially love the buttons. Your hard work paid off! I also am one who almost never completes a project. Keep up the creativity!
