Unicorn Loaded Envelope ( Mutant version - dual sided) Resin pieces - Graphic 45 Once Upon a Time papers

 Unicorn Loaded Envelope swap for Loaded Envelopes Galore (Facebook group) - that mutated into a dual loaded envelope-box-thingy - not sure what to call it but it was fun to make.  I rushed to take pictures in the middle of the night so I could get it out early to my swap partner - so the background isn't lovely and the lighting is muddy.. but you can get the idea :)

I used Apoxie Sculpt to create a little baby unicorn and to turn the plastic horse into a unicorn with curly mane and tale, scattered with rhinestones.  The paper clip is a resin piece from a mold I found on ebay.
The little horse was just a cheapo horse from my son's "Army men" pack when he was little, probably 12 years ago.  I found it in some storage boxes and was going to throw it away but ... just couldn't.  It's been sitting in the back room for 2 years now!  Finally, I knew the reason I let it "live"  lol - Now he is a topper for a pencil wand.

This large "wand" turned out to be MORE like a heavy scepter.  It is a clear ornament that I filled with diamond confetti and a double sided quote paper.  On one side it says "I'm Not Crazy Now Get Away from my Unicorn" on the other side "Always Be Yourself Unless You Can Be a Unicorn Then Always be a Unicorn.
No automatic alt text available.

The image below is what I meant by "mutant" - I had some taffy and other  items that just would never fit in a basic LE so I made it reinforced with thick chipboard and Tyvek (so it wouldn't tear under the weight of the added items, then made a topper that tied it closed.

 That way, when you undo the ribbon on the front (attached with giant jump rings on Tim Holtz metal knobs) the LE falls open to reveal more pockets inside.  Don't you just LOVE that little castle die cut?  I have had that die for YEARS~~ and finally used it for the first time.  It is by Quickutz.

 When I pulled out some of the items on the inside, there is quite the stack. All tag images are from the internet.

The giant rhinestone Unicorn clip was once a necklace!  I removed the chain and attached it to a giant clip.

I did make a video before shipping .. but sadly it just disappeared.  I went to load it today and it was completely gone, I know that has happened to others but this is my first time!!! soooo irritating! I never knew how those other crafters felt until NOW GGGGggggrrrrrrrrr.
Thanks for looking.
