repurposed packaging for technique 8 of compendium of curiosities challenge vol 2

well behind again!!! what with half term and a complete re haul of the three children's bedrooms, I have been a bad blogger and not really done any crafting except this!
So here is my entry for the compendium of curiosities vol 2 challenge , technique 8, page 62,.repurposed packaging:
well i have a whole draw full of old packaging that i just couldn't throw away and have never used, but now wow, endless fun to come!!!I loved this and the fact that is was packaging was even more rewarding. For the lowdown on the technique, follow the master himself on page 62.

I added my re purposed cogs to a tag coloured with distress inks, added my fab fav steampunk guys stamp, some ideaology and a little bottle crack;ed using a technique found on Hels blog , not sure where oops sorry!!!
I am entering this for the following competitions:
