The Ladies Steampunk Kit

Yes, I am still on a Steampunk kick.  I got this box at a thrift shop and decided to turn it into a steampunk kit.  It contains a mini hat, a necklace and a steampunk guide.  I don't like the booklet yet, so I am remaking it in the shape of a corset.

Altered Altoid tins

We're doing a class at the library so I made a few altered tins.

I had been using images of Queen Victoria in other projects so I thought I would shake it up a bit and use Queen Mary.  She's so regal.  I hat to waste the Lost & Found logo from the paper so I cut them up and made two different tins.  Both of these have small accordion fold albums inside.

I also got the idea to use those little mini frames from Michael's on the front.  This way you can use it to display a photo and you have either a mini album inside or even storage of a keepsake or trinket.

Another steampunk gift

I'm really having fun with these.  Hope the people I'm making them for enjoy them half as much as I do!!

A Ladies Diary shadow box

I found this silverware tray at Goodwill.  I've been wanting to use A Ladies Diary since it came out but wasn't sure how.  Will after being inspired by a bunch of cool printer's trays and shadow boxes, I took the plunge!  Here's my attempt.

I have a few more bits and bobs to add - some lace I think and I would like to add an old fashion pen of some sort.  I used fashion accessories but I think some writing items would be fun too.

Nightmare powder???

Here are bottles that could go in an apothecary cabinet!

But right now they are in a carrier with the words DEAD MAN'S PARTY!!  I thought that was fitting ;)
