|Front w/ door closed|
Each of the small squares is a drawer. I plan to use them for storing all my little embellishments and gadgets.
I did cover the back as shown below but since it will be sitting against the wall I didn't add embellishments as I normally would. On the front I added a handle made from a washer (found in one of my favorite places, the garage) with gold embossing powder added. On top of the washer I used one of Tim Holtz's Light Bulbs, a key chain, a Trinket Pin with a key, a Babble and some Adornments from Tim's collection. In the corner is a Paper Rossette with a clock face from 7 gypsies, some feathers, leaves and a Steampunk Tag. It turned out that I was a little short of paper when it came to covering the door so took a "Creative Detour" and added some black cardstock to the design.

Next I made tags, different kinds, colors and shapes. All you "Tim" fans will recognize the Old Jalopy , Weathered Clock and Steampunk dies. After inking, stamping - I used all time images to go with my theme. (Stampin Up, Close to My Heart and the new ones from Hampton Art with the Graphic 45 Steampunk images that I just LOVE). embossing, adding embellishments (lots of Gadget Gears from the Tim Holtz line and some from 7 gypsies) and then waiting for glue to dry...............................
I turned them over and added a picture (with my Dad at different time in his life) to each one.
The final step is to place all the tags in the BOOKODEX, a title suggested by my friend Judy Stroh. They need not be in any particular order as they can be pulled, viewed and replaced & more can be added at any time. Hope you have enjoyed looking at this project because I had lots of fun making it and it is more special because of my Dad.
