Handmade Steampunk Top Hat (TopHat ) Treasure Box - ( using Tim Holtz circle die, alcohol inks and rivet embossing folder )

Started playing with some heavy chipboard and aluminum ventilation tape and just fell in love with the results.  It seems like when you use Tim Holtz fabulous products on anything, you just can't go wrong.  These started off as a way to pass a few moments and ended up being a new way for me to give tiny gifts (like a little baggy of charms in this case):  (short video on these at: )

On this one I lightly scorched the ribbon flowers with an embossing gun to give it more of a "melty" look

Thanks for visiting my blog!  and remember to check out the GiveAway for the free Tim Holtz Toy Soldier Die (winner chosen 11-28-2013) :)
