Ha ha ha! I have found the treasure!


I used dollar store wedding favor tins to make steampunky-boxes to put the charms in. I cut out 2″ circles from some parchment-looking scrapbooking paper, and then used the Cricut to cut a shape that looks like a gear out of brown cardstock. I rubbed a little metallic copper paint on the gear shape to give it a little shine. I glued the gear to the circle.

To insert them into the tin, I took out the plastic insert, glued a tiny bit of hot glue around the edge, inserted the plastic insert and the circle into the tin. Then I glued around the edge of the paper with a little more hot glue to seal it into the tin.


And, just for a little more steampunk inspiration, here are the charms I received in the swap:
