WIP Box for Daughter
My daughter's birthday is next week, so I thought I'd try to make this little box for her. It is approx. 4-5" square. I don't usually work very fast, but I did manage to finish the lid today. The flower took me about 3 hours to make, the purple took another 2-3 hrs (told you I'm slow)! Of course, there were interruptions (aren't there always???)
It is a peony, I have them in my garden. I lost some of the outline of the petals as I went along. I need to flip over some of the green glass leaves; a couple of them are irridescent side up, and after looking at the pic, I don't like that side up. Not sure what to do with the sides yet, hopefully can play with that tomorrow before work.
This is for the DD that is ill. I hope the box cheers her up. It is the first gift I have made for anyone, and I hope it turns out really good, since it is for her. I'm using her favorite colors, pink and purple--she's going to be 22, but she's still a "princess" at heart!
