Here's a free-standing assemblage--using a King Edward cigar box as the container--that I just finished. Other than the cigar box, it includes--among other things--found objects, vintage papers and book board, a bone in a glass vial, a piece of tongue-and-groove floor board, a ground squirrel skull, and a small porcelain (called a "frozen Charlotte") doll.
It's tough to see in this picture (left), but inside this lower chamber is the ground squirrel head atop the frozen Charlotte body. This chamber also lights up from the inside; I used an LED from one of those fake candles. It flickers, which adds a nice effect to the chamber.
