Its time for Our pinterest challenge and what can I say....
ok ok..... wait a sec.....
let me defend myself here by saying I've really had a rough month and suffered with my back pain and the doc has been changing my meds to find the correct combination.
is that a good enough excuse?
ok..... I'll suck it up and just say I was total.....
lets start at the beginning when I was browsing pinterest and found a gorgeous silver embossed box.
I've always had a thing about boxes, I buy them when i see them in charity shops, bootsales or on holidays. All sorts of materials and shapes, i'm not fussy, I just love little boxes.
So I knew this pin was for me. I didn't need much, just a couple of large beer/soda cans and some embossing tools which I already have of course.
I asked my son for the cans and he gave me a few different sizes.
Perfect I got to work with the measurements and cut it out but.....
it fell apart!
the embossing looked crap!
so I started again.....
the embossing was better using a folder
It didn't fall apart when I folded the sides up
its not perfect....
and it needs a lining
the base needs a lot more work!
but the lid does fit!
it looks ok if you don't look too close.
It doesn't matter how much I try to kid myself, this is a fail!
Its heading for the bin.
now the question is do I try again or give up?
its November tomorrow so time for a new pin so I think i'll chose something different and if I get it finished with time to spare I re-make this box.
I really hope my friends had better luck than me. they are both very talented so i'm sure they have done well.
what will I choose for November?
I have no idea yet but I really love the pinterest challenge even if I did fail this month. It was still funny, frustrating, annoying, madness and interesting.
thanks for stopping by.
