DIY configuration box x

Hiya ladies here is a configuration/curiosity  box I made myself yesterday .I used recycled cardboard boxes . I covered it in vintage music sheets  and then randomly added strips of home made washi tape with script on x

I have added lots of extra photos close up of all the goodies I put in the box  so here we go

here is a close up of the bottom layer x on the right a small vial filled with German glass beside a technique tag I mad x the tag has a home made flowere embellie and a little black butterfly from little snippets  behind the  tag is a strip of handmade paper which has an alcohol technique on it also x on the left is a little pole of pearls with handmade metal and fabric flowers , another technique card and all of this is lying ontop of a pole of lace x the shelf abouve the pearls has a tiny bead fairy ( which I love making )a cut of tim holtz bird and some chiepped cork and beads too x
top left , has one of my metal atc's from a previous post and I have done a youtube video on this technique too , beside it a dice ( me and my number ;)...) and an old charm from broken jewelry x right hand side is another technique tag sitting behind a fabric button x behind that is anther piece of alcohol on acetate , with a little clip on flower just sitting there x on the little shelf over this is a small mound of beads , some more of that amazing lace and a strip of bling x the corners are ones i made myself from flat filigree corners I  had and will be on sale in my etsy shop really soon x 

here is my name plate for the piece I called it Art of Mine as it is filled with tuff I have created or stuff I love to create with x it is made of card , UTEE ( you know I LOVE IT ) and the stand and the ends are more filigree brass ovals this time x
