Steampunk Style Boxes

I made a couple of steampunk style boxes.  You remember steampunk.  It is an aesthetic which I really like, and although I love the coppery colours, they don’t quite fit into my own style.  I have been considering giving my bathroom a steampunk theme, though, and if I ever do, I’ll make sure you see pictures.

I made these little boxes with with embroidered gears as well as little copper gear shapes that I found at the hardware store.  I’m sure they have a use other than embroidery!  Some sequins, both large and small are on there as well.

These are going in the Etsy shop.

    Hi Heather :) This is a beautiful blog. I love the detail you put into these Steampunk boxes, really lovely work! I would like to add sequins and beads to a lot of my projects, I love the effect they both give.

    • Thanks so much, Kim!

      I’m a big fan of bling too. It isn’t hard to add trims like sequins and beads to your work. Most important is that you use a good thread and make sure that items are securely attached.
