The words are embroidered into the wood

The bird is made of paper


A piece I started a while back and as usual, never got round to finishing it. I enjoyed making it - it wasnt really planned - it just came together as I went along! I want to put an old long key in the compartment at the bottam but Ive only got short fat ones!!

    That is so cool. I love it how it's got compartments for stuff in. Especially the russian doll as I collect those.

    The wood is balsa wood - very light. I used a drawing pin and pushed it through the wood to make the holes in the right places and then sewed through them. I love the idea of embroidered wood and want to take the idea further with something more detailed.

    your papier mache has really given me a hankering to do some more of my own... I used to get right into it when I was at uni... How wide is your box? I will keep my op shopping eye out for a key :D
