At last I have had time to get crafty. I had to snatch time here there and everywhere in order to get this finished. I am pleased with the way it turned out. Very masculine which was the look I was going for.
The handle I added to the top was an afterthought & in hindsight I should have screwed it in, but I had already glued everything in place. Never mind I will just have to add a tag saying "Do not lift by handle" LOL. I will be making another one of these, but with the French Industrial paper collection (of course!).
I am going to be adding a few other little trinkets to this piece, when I find them!
