Hi everyone, I’m finally able to sit down and spend some time on my blog, it needs a little tidying up!
Last week I shared this wonderful project and so many of you have been making your own beautiful versions.
I was inspired to make this by this Egg Holder I have, I love its size and shape and thought it would look nice on the wall in my craft room.
I think I done well recreating it with greyboard, I made the draw deeper so I can put plenty in it.
The draw comes straight out, so you have the option to not make the draw and have an open area, to hold ink pads, Nuvo Drops or anything you like.
You also have a nice amount of space at the top under the flip lid.
For a while, I was going to keep the top plain but then I decided to add some flowers and I’m so glad I did, as I think it finishes it off perfectly.
