You know the thick brown cardboard that comes on the back of paper pads or as stiffener when you buy vellum or whatever.... i used it to make a gift box.... and the cogs and latch fastenings.
I used T!m Holtz dies for the cogs and latches.... triple embossed them and stamped into them with SMEARED INK TEENS BACKGROUND STAMP.
The box has had 2 coats of black acrylic paint....inside and out.... and then i rubbed the edges with metallic cream.
The card is very stiff to work with and needs strong glue to hold it together but it makes into a really ridgid gift box.
