Don’t expect something brilliant, as things do tend to look better in my head than in reality, but the box is finished.
I had no idea what I was doing, had no guide so made it up as I went along, but it has been an interesting exercise, and one I enjoyed as I learned a lot.
It’s nothing like you’d see on Blue Peter, with the ‘one I made earlier’ and all that, it was just a simple cereal box, some card, paper, glue and a bit of luck.
Putting the papers on in some kind of order would obviously have worked better, and concentrating on what I was doing before adding a final touch would have helped, but I made mistakes, the biggest putting my flower on upside down on the lid, so it opens towards you, rather than away. I could have omitted that little snippet, but hey, it happens.
The lid is actually my proudest bit.
It won’t win any prizes, but my Mum would have loved it as I’d made it.
