Little Horrors

These are 50 handmade limited edition badge gift sets I created last Summer inspired by the brilliant bands The Horrors and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. They're a fun package of nonsense for anyone who enjoys the macabre and mysterious.

This is the contents inside each gift set:

1 x Illustrated collaged poisonous badge
1 x Hand written nonsense recipe
1 x Giant hand drawn skeleton sticker
1 x Miniature hand drawn spider sticker
1 x Decorated wax sealed envelope
1 x Illustrated Nightowl Poem
2 x Miniature red ink splattered hearts
2 x Prints of my Visual Diary drawings
2 x Little Horror Pegs
1 x Skeleton leaf
1 x Plastic Bat
1 x Skeleton Key
1 x Bag of 'Bad Seeds'

Here are some photos to demonstrate how I made the poisonous gift sets:
