Bead Embroidered Cyclops Gold Treasure Box

This unique little box is the perfect spot for your small treasures. I started with a sturdy little round cardboard box which I painted with several coats of metallic gold acrylic paint. A lifelike acrylic baby doll eye is the focus of the top embroidered decoration which was created using beads, nymo thread, cotton thread and heavy duty wool craft felt. The top decoration is firmly glued in place with industrial strength E6000 glue and finished with a beaded edging. I also finished the bottom of the box with a piece of felt so that it would not scratch any surface you might place it on.

 

Dimensions: The box is 3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter an 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) in depth.
