Graphic 45 Vintage Box

I have to warn you I took lots of pictures of this box and the things I made to go in it. I had a great time working on this and simply love creating things using Graphic 45 paper. I am working on something else form a different line now and will have pictures of that soon. Ok so here is the box and the hand-made items I put inside it.
I got the box at the local craft store and it was designed to look like a vintage book. I thought it was really pretty so I decided to not cover the spine. These pictures didn't come out all that great but you can get the idea of how it looks like a book.

When you close the box it has magnets that catch. So I used a Tim Holtz knob to use to open and close it.

Here is the tag I made to hold stick pins and again this pictures isn't great but I took these and then shipped this off, so I didn't have time to check the pictures before I mailed it.
Here is the chunky charm I also sent.
This was the first easel card I have ever made and now I am hooked. I have made two more since. I have received this style of card several times and I always love them, so I thought I would take a shot at making one.
This is another of those little tins I have been altering and posting. This one was fairly simply but I was really happy with the finished product.

Thanks for looking. I had a great time working on these items!
