The first book in a tin.
I'm not a great one for satin bows and stick on gemstones, buttons and fol de rols, but there wasn't a lot to hand this lunch time so just went with the flow, because I wanted to decorate the inside of one of my boxes.
I wanted the box to be untouched on the outside but a bit more fun on the inside. The stuff on the left hand side of the lid is part of a sheet of shell, that you can cut to size if you're careful - it's very brittle.
The little vase is a photocopy of the piece I made last week for the Quilters Guild sale of unfinished items. They're trying to raise funds, and although not a member myself for various reasons, I do think the Quilt Museum is an excellent thing, so was happy to support the cause.
