Steampunk Box with Porthole

Hello Makers!

Today I have a fun make to share. As many of you know, I am fond of steampunk/industrial/grungy aesthetics. I love to make keepsake boxes made out of cigar boxes. Not only do I get to be creative, but I also upcycle a beautiful, wooden cigar box and best of all, I save it from the landfill. I get my boxes from my local cigar shop. Hope you like it.

I am also sharing my make with the following challenges:
Vintage Journey Jan Challenge "Think inside or outside the box"
Sandee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenges

  1. What a fabulous box, Iris! I love your steampunk theme and that fabulous port hole! I would have loved to be a butterfly on your craft room wall when you made this! Gorgeous patina! Thank you for playing along in our Inside/Outside the Box challenge at A Vintage Journey. Sara Emily

Brilliant idea to add the 'porthole', what a fabulous design element. Thank you for joining us at A Vintage Journey for our Think Inside or Outside The Box challenge, Deb xo
