some necklaces and a box I made using found objects

I found this box in some
stuff I got in a swap and
decided to jazz it up a bit
I used some old washers
for the top that I put
emborssing powder on and
then stamped into it
I did the box lid the same way
just stamped onto the melted
emborssing powder
this is the side of the box
I just stamped the word
secrets onto the sides and cover
with some blue pearl x and
covered it all with papier glass finish
a necklace made from a trimonial
i used emborssing powder and stamped into it
an old dog tag that i covered in embrossing powder then I flicked pearl x on it then stamped into it

mouted rubber stamp storage system

I made this from metal corners that you use to protect the corners of drywall

it comes in 10 ft strips I cut it to size bent the ends over to protect from sharp edges screwed them into my wall. I put screws about every 10 inches or so just to give it added support then I covered the ends with c0rner trim again to cover the sharp edges.

and then just set my stamps onto the ledge the idea came to me from seeing the way stamp stores had their stamps displayed I wanted something like this for mine so this is what I came up with.
