Once Upon A Time Decorated Box


UPDATE: Monica is currently NOT making any more of these boxes to sell.

Did anybody happen to catch the finale of Once Upon a Time this weekend? Yesterday the creators of the show released a new trailer for their spin off show Once Upon a Time in Wonderland that looks pretty epic. I'm happy that there is something to fill the prime time fantasy/magic void. This week I thought I'd share a jewelry box I decorated inspired by Regina's evil queen style. I bought a wooden box, some hardware, and metal decorations from the craft store and Lisa had a fake heart prop lying around which took it to the next level. It's a pretty dark and morbid but that is the beauty of it! (Sorry Sandra for creeping you out!)

>> I sculpted a heart and dagger piece out of polymer clay and painted it to match the other hardware. I used some heart boxes from the show as inspiration.

 >> For the interior of the box I copied lining used from this queen of hearts themed matchbox. The checkerboard and filigree designs are perfect and really match Regina's style. I wanted to capture Regina's distinctive office design look and feel.


Off with their heads and out with their hearts! Regina is the best.

  1. Hey I'm a huge collector of once upon a time and have gotten people to make me replicas of things of the show that they made themselves. Are you making these boxes because I am making a once upon a time short film and I have the heart just looking for a box everywhere and yours is perfect!
