Something New

I have several new ideas for fall and these little square tins are one of them! This is my sample just to see if it's going to work.


There are always bugs to work out in a new design, I have run across several in this one.

1 - my mitre box is just not helping me make square cuts, so how do I find someone with a "real" saw that will help me cut the frame.
2 - I wanted them to stand up, but either the tin is too heavy or I just can't balance them, hmmm...


I love the color, though, and the tin has several more motifs, so 3 more to go to make a colorful arrangement for me and hopefully everything will work out so I can offer them for sale, too!

I love them! A row of those would be gorgeous in a kitchen or entrance hall. Good luck with the cutting!

Love this! I saw a "mini" tabletop miter saw at Harbor Freight Tools. If you don't have one locally, they have a website.

Love the color- so fresh! Can they hang on the wall? Or maybe be displayed on an easel, like a piece of art?
