OTP Lunch Box
I saw this antique lunch box at a thrift sale this summer and picked it up. I have been looking at it and just wondering what I could do with it. I decided to gussy it up a bit. Lots of pictures with this post.
This was such a creative process that evolve dramatically. It started as one project, that ended up being a total of four.
I added a ton of goodies. Some chippies and just had some fun. I am trying to use up some of my stash.
The finished product.
Here are some close ups.
I used an Epiphany Round 25 and some Retro Cafe Collage Sheets and some metal adornments.
And now to the inside….
Inside close up… but as I sat and looked at how pretty this turned out. There was too much open space, so I just had to fix that.
So I made a mini accordion tin, a mini album, and a candle holder.
The Mini Accordion Tin.
And now to the candle holder. I used Tengel’s idea from the forum with the roll of tape as the template for the holder.
Well I hope you all enjoyed the tons of pictures today! And thank you for spending some time here. I do plan on doing some more crazy projects like this. I picked up a wine bottle holder I have been brainstorming about. So hopefully soon I can get creative with that.
