I had to buy 4 papier mache boxes to make my apothecary but didn't need the lids:
so I am left with them cluttering the minuscule bit of storage space I have.
A certain time of year is fast approaching which means making and buying presents for nearest and dearest. I thought I would have a go at making. So, spurred on by my unbelievable canvas which Hels made for me on commission, I decided to bite the bullet and 'attack' a lid.
I didn't want to 'copy' Hels' design - not that I stand a cat in hells job of doing that - but it wouldn't be right and darn right rude, but I did want to - shall I say - have a go and follow the information I tried to glean from just looking and admiring it, if that makes sense. I hope it looks ok 'cos it does to me:

This is destined for a very dear friend and even though I know she sees my blog, I hope she likes it when she finally sees it at that 'special' time of year.
