Emergency kit for Witches

Inspired by Laura Carson's lovely projects on her Arfully Musing blog, I just HAD TO create this altered Altoid's tin box modelled on her gorgeous apothecary! (click the link to see her awesome stuff!)

As I love to write, draw and try to produce most of the afforded stuff myself, I did not use lots of collage sheet scraps or bought embellishments, but thanks to those awesome friendly people out there in the web, I found some wonderful spooky freebies, which were very inspiring and useful!!! Thank you so much at this point!

So behold, honourable witches and sorceresses, our fabulous apothecary: "The practical Witches' Companion"!
Very helpful for witches, who love to travel and have the most essential ingredients and tools with them. A handy accessory for the resourceful, modern mobile witch! To provide full safety, the "Companion" can be locked (key and lock included in delivery)!
It usually comes with three ingredients, safely bottled in carefully corked, reusable glass vials. According to the witch's individual magic preferences, various combinations of ingredients are available. "Teeth of Wolves", "Muddled Mummy", "Spider Venom", "Devil's hair" and "Eye of Newt" to name only a few. Your witchcraft's success is our goal!

The shown version contains the ingredients "Wool of Bat", "Toe of Frog" and snake's "Venom", our top seller in the popular "Webbed Potions" design.



Once you open the outer cover, which is held in place by delicate metal fittings and a pure leather string, the list of contents on the left, the key and the lid of the travel box come to the fore.


After unlocking the light aluminium travel container, you can easily open the lid, which on its'inside shows a lovely group portrait of the honourable company's foundresses, the "Southwick Witches". On the right - as you can see - the vials are safely held in place, perfectly designed to fit.


The official "Wicked Seal of Approval" on the back guarantees 100 % quality of contents and materials used in our products!


We are looking forward to count you among our satisfied customers!

  5. Sehr, sehr, sehr gelungen. (:o)Das Schlangengift in seiner Farbgewalt ist der Hit wobei der Rest auch nicht zu verachten ist. Hört sich alles nach einer gut brodelnden Mixtur an. Die kleinen Labels finde ich besonders chic. Wer weiss, an welcher Ecke die Haare spriessen, nach der Mixtur. Wie gut, das Hexen heute nicht mehr verfolgt werden (:o))

  6. Just drooling over this creation. What an imagination you have die amelie you have just transported me back to medieval times

    How sad am I read all the Harry Potter books and loved every one of them. Your creation reminds me of Hogworts and the alchemy classes..

    Thank you for sharing with us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

  13. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!! I don't know how you thought this one up but I love it - all of it! I showed it to my husband and he says that I need one because I'm a witch (!!!) so, put one on order for me too and I'll make a witches costume to go with it! It really is a stunningly creative project die amelie.
