90th Birthday! - magic box


My friend Kathy asked me to make a box for her Mum's 90th Birthday!
The Brief:
1) The explosion - pink striped roses, these were the flowers Kathy's Mum grew in her garden.
2) NO BUGS, (I wanted the occasional butterfly or bee), Kathy assured me that they would be swatted!!!!



I'm sorry it's been a long while since my last post - this year has been a little bit manic.

  5. A stunning box!Your roses are gorgeous and the colours are so delicate and beautiful. I have until the beginning of December to make something for my father-in -law's ninetieth... can't see a magic box with steam trains in it working some how - can you?!
