|French manuscript case, 4x3", early 1500s|
Tortoise shell and ivory
Step Three: supplies already on hand
Sorry for the blurriness - I'm back to phone pics until I can figure out wtf picasa is smoking these days.
1 plastic cig case
black spray paint
3 plastic buttons, spray painted almond
gold paint marker
7 "pewter" plastic beads
embroidery floss, 6-strand braided cord (and yes, the box slides up and down on the cord, and opens properly).
Not bad for a bunch of plastic crap.
