Graphic 45 Small Matchbox - Steampunk Spells


Yes, have been busy crafting away on Halloween projects! Halloween is my most favorite time of year for crafting.  I love the colors and the papers that always spring up during fall. 

My BFF and I are taking a trip to TX this weekend and was in need of a easy project to do in our hotel room at night.  I had this Graphic 45 Small Matchbox in my stash for some time now and decided it was time for it to meet my craft desk.

For this one, I went surfing for some inspiration and boy did I find a lot of get projects out there.  I settled on one that not only gave me a challenge but the look was awesome.

Let just say you had to really take the knife to this poor little box.  Cutting not only the lid but the inside box.  But the effort is so worth the outcome. 

I again used Tim Holtz GrungePaper to make the clasp.  I really like out it turns out looking like leather when inked. 

Now I will have to admit getting the binding in the holes was quiet a challenge and I had to stop several times because I didn't think I would ever succeed. But in the end I did manage this feat.

No, I just couldn't cover up some of the papers.  LOL

The project turned out great and was well worth the effort.

Happy Paper Cutting!!
