Steampunk Necklace and Box

IMG_5467A friend of mine wanted to get his wifey something awesome for their 10 year anniversary!! I made a super cool necklace/choker for her. After making the choker I felt like it needed to be displayed extra special!

Let me start off by explaining that I DO NOT SEW but I made a little heart shaped pillow for the necklace to be rested on. I also decorated this awesome cardboard box I bought from Jo-Anne’s Fabrics. I painted the box gold and then “dirtied” it up with acrylic paint. I used a block stamp that had these circles all over it and colored in random dots with red ink. Lastly I glued on typewriter keys. I think it turned out awesome!

Here are a few more images of the cute box, I almost wanted to keep it!! I painted the sides of the box with stripes too.
