A bucket or basket????

Hi lovely people!!!  This week I have a lovely, what shall I call it?  A bucket? hahaha!!!! Tando Creative call it a round basket and you can buy one *here*.   If you like to make up gift boxes then this could be for you as it will certainly hold a fair few things!!!  Its 7inches across and around 6inches deep!!!!I have left the handle off as I want to store large tubes of paint in it ;-D

I pushed out all the hearts before painting the sections on one side then covered the other side with double sided  pretty paper.  The base and the top rim were  painted then all the pieces glued in place.  I had some lovely plaited string in my stash which I glued around the top and bottom and then added a border.  The border was stamped onto the same paper and cut out.  I took 2 of the hearts and painted one side and added paper to the other before attaching them with more plaited string.

Here is the inside.....

See, it does go together a bit like a beer barrel haha!!!!  I have to say that I am pleased with this and it will look pretty on my craft table.

Tando have an ongoing challenge so if you fancy making anything this week then please enter it and link to the page at the top of the Tando Blog to enter in the draw for a prize at the end of the month.

Thank you so much for looking today, please take care, HUGS xxx

Wow, Karen, this is gorgeous. I like that you plan to use it in your craft space, too. Beautiful AND functional.

BTW, I'm having trouble leaving messages to you. Seems blogger times out before the message is sent. Frustrating. Hope you get this.

You're not putting filthy dirty paint tubes in there!!! That's a crime! Don't you dare! I'm getting the crafty coppers down to your place - it's way too nice for that by a long stretch ;-)
