Ripping and sticking... again

I picked up a plain mache desk tidy from Hobbycraft for £3 during one of their recent sales.  


I snapped it up as I keep my pens, scissors etc on my cutting table in glass jars. They often fall over.


Add a bit of decopatch paper, not right down to the bottom on the big ones, my hand wouldn't fit.


You can't tell from the side though, so it doesn't matter.



You definitely can't tell when they're all full up. I'm rethinking the rotary cutter though - I can see me cutting my own hand off...  I'm so happy I have somewhere to put my seam ripper, with my house being decidedly wonky, it always rolls on the floor.  No more!

Very pretty, and always good to keep the stitch ripper off the floor, less chance of stabbing yourself in the foot! :o)

Everything is close at hand, Wendy. Looks like it should work well and they look great. The rotary cutter may be a little top heavy, though.

What's the difference b/t decopatch and decopage papers?

I always keep my rotary cutter in a similar set up :S I think if you remember to put the safety thing on every time you'll be OK!
