Stampotique Challenge: Handles, hinges, buckles

Happy Hump Day!!! That means a new Stampotique challenge, this time hosted by Valerie. She want us to make something with handles, hinges, buckles, fasteners, pulls - different ways to flip, fold, fasten, open, close and grasp! These could be used on cards, dimensional projects, envelopes or altered/recycled/found objects.... faux or real - anything goes!
I made this... don't know how to call it ;-) It's made with the Tim Holtz Vintage Cabinet Die and Hinges. The background is made with Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise. I colored with Distress Markers. Grunged the cardboard with a Cat Eye Ink pad Sepia Black. And of course this lovely stamps to create a magical scene.

Stamps used:
