Tabby Cat ‘Book’ Hinged Trinket Box (Up-cycled piece)



Much of my inspiration comes from beautiful vintage designs, and I try to incorporate these ideas in my work, using decoupage and mixed media to create unique gifts and home decorations.
I really enjoyed using different paint techniques and decoupage to up-cycle this book-shaped trinket box into this truly unique piece – there will never be another the same!
I’ve used rice paper, with a vintage style tabby cat design for the decoupage on lid and one side, to give the effect of a book cover, then I’ve used mineral based paints to create a green and metallic gold mottled effect on the back, ‘pages’ on the sides, and a complementing stencil design on the inside, using colours from the front. I’ve used foil leaf on the edges, which adds to the shabby chic style. On the inside, I’ve painted the remaining sides in dusky pink, and lined the bottom with a dark pink felt. All the painted areas have been finished off with a clear top coat which gives a subtle sheen.
Please be aware that this is an up-cycled box, made from MDF, and there are a few imperfections due to previous usage.
This box measure approximately 26cm high x 20cm wide x 5cm deep.
All products from The Crafty Peacock come wrapped in tissue, with a fabric gift bag to add that special touch to your purchase, and are packaged securely in cardboard boxes to prevent any damage in transit.
This will be dispatched using Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.

Terms and Conditions

When I decided to start selling the things that I make or up-cycle, I had a particular goal in mind, and that was to ensure that the buyer had a fair and efficient shopping experience, receiving a quality handcrafted product within a short timescale – I’m terrible if I have to wait a long time for something that I’ve ordered online, so I don’t want people who buy from me to be waiting unnecessarily for their delivery to arrive. I believe that better service generates loyal customers, and I have tried to embed that philosophy in my store policies. General Whilst most of the components of my products are sourced from other suppliers, the finished pieces that I sell are all designed and put together by myself. I take all my own photographs and try my best to ensure that they are an accurate representation of my items as possible. Cancellation As I strive to pack and dispatch orders within 24 hours, I am unable accept cancellations.

Shipping Policy

Postage costs vary per item, depending on size and weight. I use Royal Mail, which means that I get proof of postage for smaller items and tracking for orders over £10, should the worst happen and your item does not arrive. Orders and individual packages of £5 or under in value will be dispatched using Royal Mail's 1st Class Standard Service; orders of £5.01 and above will be dispatched using Royal Mail's Tracked 48 Service. Postage costs will be combined for multiple items.
When an item is in stock, I aim to dispatch within 24 hours where possible. I aim to dispatch bespoke or personalized items within 5 working days; if I am unable to do so, I will keep buyers updated.

Return Policy

I will accept returns if an order arrives damaged in transit, and you should notify me of this within 48 hours of receipt. If there has been an error in the order you receive, or you feel that the item is not as I described, please let me know within 48 hours of receipt and I will do my best to rectify the problem quickly and at no extra cost to yourself.
Personalised items can only be returned if they are damaged upon receipt.
Anything that does need to be returned will be dealt with as timely as possible on my part, and I will keep you informed throughout the process.
Returning an item will initially be at the cost of the customer, and will then be included in any agreed refund or in the form of a replacement item.
