Steampunk Box

Dear Reader

Here's another box I've made to Laura Denison's design (check out side bar for link) . Yes, loved this box so much I made it twice. I had some of the Graphic 45 Steampunk papers left from my clock and I thought my youngest Alice would like a memory box for her birthday. Birthday party was the weekend just gone so now I'm safe to post the project! I attached another of my tiny clocks. Photo's not so hot but this one is really cool and Steampunky. It's a glass ball with the clock face one side and the inside workings showing at the rear. And it has a tassle dangling from it. Alice loved it and declared it her favourite present. I used a TH plaque to frame the "Alice - Memories" label and decorated the edges with some awesome trim from Running with Scissors. The sides of the box have strips punched with MS Iron Gate. I've been loving this punch. Again, the end result is plain but I wanted to do a practical box that might last a while. Inside the box is a little mini photo album.


  1. Bloomin' heck Anne, I think you're on a roll. I had enough trouble doing one box and you've already done two. This one is as gorgeous as the last. I'm not surprised that Alice loved it. The most perfect keepsake box. Anita xx
