Dragon Skin Covered Box with Hand Dyed Ribbons & Gems
Shirley gifted me this very sturdy card board box recently and it was screaming FIX ME. No not really screaming, but I kept looking at it wanting to put cool paper and bling on it!
The glass knob, ribbon, metal corners, glass feet, and little gems make me so happy!
Enjoyed making the top the most with some Prima Gems, roses, and an edge off an antique pillow. Love reusing stuff!
One more photo of the top looking at the box from the side. I really love the metal on the front. The scallop under the rose gem came from the second hand store and had India engraved on the bottom. Not sure what it was used for previously but made a nice decoration.
The gems you can see dangling off my ribbon are Prima Genie Stones that I got from the Funkie Junkie Boutique.
And, what purpose will this box serve in my home?
Currently it's hanging out on my desk with my new antique clock. Yes, it still works! Picked this up at the second hand store the other day because it was super cool. Remind me to give it to Tim Holtz when I meet him. Seems like something he'd think was awesome-sauce!
