Marie Antoinette Closet...

er Royal Closet

Create a closet fit for a Queen.

Imagine what Marie would keep inside her closet.
Shoes, of course, fans perhaps, dresses, maybe even a place for cupcakes!!
An image of Marie in some fashion,
the possibilities are endless.

The example is one of my own creations..
made for a swap with a lady named Dawn.

Alter a hinged box, (example is a cigar box) into a closet.
Glam up the outside Inside, a shelf can be created from mat board or balsa wood.

In creating the inside, keep in mind a few things.
One, you will want it to close completely.
You may wish to keep the size between 6" and 12" to keep your postage reasonable if mailing.
Be sure to sign and date it somewhere :-)

I used:

cigar box
printed pc images,
hand dyed muslin
gold stampings
ink pads - Altered Element
heat gun - Altered Element
embossing powder- Altered Element

Enjoy making your own closet
Love & light
