Love this body cream in a variety of flavours but what to do with the tubs when emptied? Far to nice to just bin even into the recycling bin so i save them to keep bits and pieces in, but not very pretty left like that so am going to start 'doing them up'. This is the first liberally daubed with Alcohol ink,and the top of the lid covered with crackle graze (it did not crack). The leaf is in metal which was stamped on the reverse and the image drawn over with an embossing tool and the vains drawn in. The metal piece is then worked from the right side with the various TSS tools and finally cut out. A piece of wire has been wrapped round the edge of the lid and then swirled over the leaf on top a second piece has been attached coming over the top of the lid and then 'woven' back. More crackle over the wires to just help hold it in place.
No idea what to store in it, perhaps Kanban die cut leaves .....
