New in my Etsy Shop tonight

I finally got my creativity back last week, thanks to my friend Brenda who had a challenge for our Etsy Team to do something in Steampunk for this month.
This is an altered tin made with custom paper, two sizes of chain, metal gears and a metal clock face. It inspired me and got my creative juices flowing.

I had been wanting to do another altered cigar box for my shop so when I finished the tin I started on this cigar box. It is covered with decorative paper on the outside and inside top lid. The inside of the box has shear fiber paper lining. I embellished it with chain, metal decorative paper clips, metal gears, metal clock face and shear fabric leaves in three different colors.


Okay I am on a roll now...I received this tin from one of my fellow swappers. It is a bit thinner than an altoid tin but a bit wider also so I had this idea to make a pretty box and put a sewing kit inside.

This is it!

This tin is covered with shear fiber paper and embellished with a cabochon face with silk flower petals around it. There are 4 vintage cabochons making the shape of a butterfly and tiny blue pearls accent it perfectly.

This will make a very nice gift for someone.
