Something to Hold Stamps....

Weird title, I know.....I don't do piles of Off the Page projects - usually they're driven by a need. In this case, a place to pop those stamps that you collect for charity....or that's what I'm doing here in Oz!
So, a bit of a step by step:

 The metal 'clock' was really heavy, so I attached it with some picture hanging wire! It hides behind the trim...so invisible yet strong:):)
And here's how it all ended up. All the goodies I've used are from Zeus & Zoe apart from the string, wire & the little metal butterfly:

 That diamante trim has to be an all-time fave.....I've hot glued the buttons & all the trims on....
 I've used Distress Crackle paint - clear rock candy - over the 'clock' face...the key looks sooo cute dangling down, don't you think??? LOOOVE that Webster's lace down the bottom:):)

 The lid has some gel medium-ed paper, covered with an old lace doily, then some ribbon & I've added some glitter for the little charm to sit on:) The etsy shop has scrumptious trims to choose from:)
I've used string to attach the clock to the wire...gives a bit more of a rustic look!
This was an easy, fun project, & practical - not too much of a 'dust collector', either:):)
Hope it gives you some ideas to get creative ~ Cheers, Lizzy ♥♥♥

You've made a utilitarian object into a work of art. Especially like the clock face with the dangling key :D
