Crafty Secrets & eclectic Paperie (Shabby) blog hop

EDIT: I've had several inquiries about the stamped knife.
You can get the metal punch set at places like Home Depot or Lowe's, I got mine online, I can't remember where. I found a set at Amazon, I have the 1/8" set like that one. I have a bench block that I use that I got online also to do the hammering on but, you could do it on a cement floor I'd think or any super hard surface. I used a little hammer to do the stamping.
I hope that helps, have fun!
Oh yeah, Sandy has uped the prizes to a total of 16 instead of 6 - she's good like that!!
TGIF!
Are you ready for a fun shabby blog hop?
Check it out....Both EP and Crafty Secrets will be giving away prizes. A total of six prizes all together! You can find out more about the prizes on the Heartwarming Vintage and eclectic Paperie blogs ( linked below). The more DT blogs you visit and leave comments on, the more you increase your chances to win one of the 6 prizes. Winners to be announced on Monday.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For my project I altered an old wooden box that was a flea market find a few years back.
I used Tim Holtz's brilliant idea in using his Tissue Tape to cover the edges, so simple and it looks great!
This compartment has a tiny metal tart tin, a bingo game piece and a lock and keys. The flower on top is an old Prima flower, I put a vintage earring in the center of the book page flower I made.
This is the box I started with. I covered the edges and then I added Wonderland Tea Creative Scraps to the back of each compartment, I like to use the collage side of the Creative Scraps when I'm covering something. See the houses on the left? They came with the box. I was going to paint them, but, I decided not too.
When I was done covering everything I put on a coat of Mod Podge to protect it.

See the little boy flying the kite? He's from the Crafty Secrets Little Boy stamp set.
I stamped him and paper pieced his clothes. I cut him out and glued him to a dowel. My hubby drilled the hole in the block for me.
I used some of my little collectibles in this box, it always fun to fill boxes like this!

This one has vintage rubber alpha stamps, a vintage button card and an altered domino.
along with the kite.
This one has a pocket watch and a giant ball chain that I got from SkyBlue Pink a couple of years ago. I put a punched image from the Creative Scraps inside with some trinkets.

This one has a soldered piece with a picture of my cat and a vintage pin.
I added a painted ledge from some doll house trim for the charm and pin to sit on.


This compartment has a vintage tracing wheel, one of the houses and 2 printers blocks.
Here is 3 pieces of silverware I tied together with seam binding.
I stamped the knife with the word play.
Isn't the Campbells kid spoon sweet? I rubbed some Walnut Distress ink on the letters to make them pop.
I made the flower with a mini tart tin and some tin snips.
There is tatting on a spool and a cloth measuring tape.
Well, that's it!

Make sure you check out all of the designers blogs on this fun hop for a chance to win!

OH MY... You can only imagine HOW MUCH I love this project!! AMAZING! and in the mist of it I was almost in tears.. because I saw something that I used to have as a child(given to me by my aunt Dorothy) ..that I lost somehow when we moved to this house. It's that campbell soup girl spoon. Brought back so many memories. I have never seen another one.
Such an amazing project.. I'm headed back for another look!

What a fantastic shadow-box!!!

Assemblage and "out-of-the-box", (or "in-the-box" in this instance) creations are right up my alley.

I love your use of the paper and
printed tape to prepare the box as a place to showcase your gathered goodies. The little boy flying the kite stamp from Crafty Secrets is what truly sets it apart.

Bravo to you, O Creative One!!!
