Last year for his birthday, my husband wanted me to make him something functional. He wanted a box to put his tarot cards in. He pretty much gave me free reign with the design saying only that he’d put his tarot deck in it.
So, I chose cards out of the major arcana that I thought would do him well to meditate on and used those images in his gift. I did the same thing with this box. The cards I chose I feel need to be meditated on more now than ever.
The box is a dowel hinged cigar box. It has been cleaned, sanded, primered and painted in deep black. Hand inked stamped images of the tarot cards The Empress, The Star, and The High Priestess and their corresponding definitions are layered on black brocade art paper and decoupaged onto the lid. Hand Inked images of the full moon face are on the front panel and faun and vine work illustrations adorn the side panels.
The exterior of the box measures: 10″ wide x 7 1/4″ long x 2″ tall.
The interior is finished in a ruby copper and measures 9 1/4″ wide x 6 1/4″ long x 1 1/2″ deep.
Different styles, designs, and sizes are available. Please inquire as to what is available and allow 7-10 days production time on custom and back orders.
These are not sold as food safe. What you put in them is up to you. Please do not use harsh cleaners as this may damage the finish.
