What a cool idea!
And, hey, guess what? I won! :D For my prize I chose a gorgeous pair of earrings made by a friend for the competition, in serpentine and pearls. :)
And, of course, I forgot to take a picture of them on the table at the event, so all I have are pics of them on my kitchen counter.
They're just $2-3 wooden boxes from the craft store, stained and painted with plain ol' furniture stain, acrylic craft paints, a Sharpie marker, a gold paint pen, a stain touch-up pen, and a can of matte-finish spray-sealant.

|stain pen wood tones|
|And of course, one had to be the Star of Ansteorra :o)|
P.S. - Interested in seeing a video of the choral and musical performance I was a part of at the event? It's on the blog I keep for the Choral Guild: http://bryngwlad-choir.blogspot.com/2011/12/yule-revel-performance-video.html
