This is my work desk this morning, I have been playing with the Bisto Gravy Granuals tubs again!! I wanted to make Donna something as a thank you for making and sending me my little hoodie doll, Kruger. The project I started sort of stalled as I was trying to make it in Donna style, which just didn't seem to work when I did it. Then she said she would like a snippet roll.... so I have made a cotton reel to hold it.
Now MaryAnne left me a comment a few weeks ago saying that the gravy tubs might work with the Tim Holtz bird cage die, the first attempt of making the entire thing a circle of bird cages is still in pieces on the side of my desk... it was not going to be very sturdy!! So I had another attempt with this and cut the cage shape from the side of the tub leaving the rest of it intact.
This is the top with all the 'bits'.
Whilst at the dollar store on Monday with my friend, Odelia, I mentioned that I was looking for the little flickering tea light candles that work on a battery.... and voila, she found them!! So if Donna wants to hang the snippet roll she can have a little candle holder of a cotton reel....
Only I can't decide whether to leave the cage bare so you can look inside as in this photo or back the cage with the alcohol inked transparency as in this one below???
What do you think?
and I got my prize from Graphic 45 today - such lovely stuff to play with... :)
