A Book of Spells in a Box

Hi there!  It's Erin here with you today to show you some Steampunk Spells fun!  I created a neat little Halloween box for you!


I created a "Book of Spells" to go inside the box.

Below is a front view of the box.  (I apologize for the picture quality.  It's 1 in the morning!)


















Here's the inside of the box, also decorated!















Below are each page in the Book of Spells.














I love creating little surprises throughout this book!





























Ok, so how did I create this?  I took a Graphic45 box, and sponged all the edges w/ Memento Black ink.  I then took several pieces of paper from the Steampunk Spells stack, cut, sponged the edges with Black Memento ink, and covered the box inside and out.  To create the outside of the box, I simply cut out images from the stack and adhered them to the top and front of the box.  I added embellishments from my stash to complete the details.


To create the Book of Spells, I cut out different rectangles found within the Steampunk Spells pack, and inked the edges.  I cut out black cardstock to put between each rectangle and to make each page sturdy.  I added hinges and twine to finish the book and bind it.
