Made for my partner in the 13 Days of Halloween 2015 swap.


The box was once used to store library stamps back in the days before computers.   Grin
The flowers, heart, and crown are sculpted of clay.  The chair crafted from a champagne bottle top.  Plastic skulls covered with glitter, skull and heart beads are also piled about.  Papel picado was fashioned out of tissue paper.

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

Thank you!  I worked on it a little at time for over a month but I was happy with the result.  I was able to consult a pre-med student worker at work about the heart.   Smiley
