31 Days of Halloween - Day 11 - Never Leave Home without It!

Smeared & Smudged
31 Days of Halloween
Day 11
Just what every Witch in the know needs...
No. 13 Travel
Potion Kit
I had so much fun making this kit.  It's actually a vintage watchmakers vial parts box. 
I stamped the front with various stamps...the witch and grave stones are from Third Coast Rubber Stamps; the poison, spider, skull & cross bones are all Alpha Stamps; the Danger sign (shown in the next photo on the spine is by Crafty Individuals.
The inside slots were made from chipboard so I was able to remove a few of the dividers to make the larger areas where the spare bones are kept...  The rest of the little bottles are tiny watchmaker parts vials - just a bit over 1" tall. 
Each of the vials is filled with something different...depending on what is called for.  For example the Moth Dust is white embossing powder; the roots are twine, the crushed acorn is dry walnut stain crystals; etc. 
It was lots of fun to make :)
