Steampunk Receipt Holder

Pin It! I have been working on this project for a couple of days. I made this Steampunk Receipt Holder for our new Game Room. You can find the tray with attached receipt holders at Scrapbook.com I thought it would be a great place to hold some of our winning scores that we might want to save like from Yahtzee or a card game. We can also post pictures of friends or family sharing in the fun. Alot of the papers and accents are from Graphic 45, 7 Gypsies and Tim Holtz. I love how well they all work together.

I punched a hole in the metal to be able to screw on the Tim Holtz knob and hang the 7 Gypsies charm from it.

The roses on this one I dyed myself using alcohol ink. I also added dimensional clock hands behind the clock face with dimensional pearl paint.


I just love this piece. I don't know where I picked up the feather but I attached a key that I inked with alcohol inks to make it the coloring that I wanted. The ribbon I tied in a little different way, I didn't want a box or simple tie.

The gentleman's block I added some subway tokens that I had picked up along the way. And the one with the butterfly I added a tag with a few gears. I also added a leaf by Tim Holtz.

To hand it we used a simple screw (which I will be covering with a subway token) and added a few charms and do dads to the chain to jazz it up.

Another beautiful piece Christie!! You will have to do a video when your game room is complete, so we can see not just your interior design flare but how you displayed your wonderful works of art!!!

Wowza! I've been staring for a while now and have just come to my senses long enough to comment. I notice a different element every time I look at it and I'm still awed by this piece.
Amazing work!
