W for woodland fauna and/or flora

We're approaching the end of the alphabet over at the Alphabet challenge and have only a few more letters to go. This fortnight's task is dominated by the letter W, meaning we'd like to see woodland flora and/or fauna on your creations.
For my DT inspiration, I decided to cover up another storage box from my stash.
It's the same size as the cupcake themed box I prepared a while ago for the "party" challenge, only that I opted for a paper by Nina Štajner this time. And so, the tube is covered in the most beautiful bunnies, fawns, squirrels, hedgehogs & Co.
Again, the paper ends didn't quite meet which is why I added a strip of dark brown paper. 
Upon gluing everything together, I managed to create a small tear right next to the hedgehog, which luckily isn't all too visible from afar.
Other than that, I think I've done a good job with the edges this time.
Matching the forest animals on the outside, I filled the box with walnuts. However, unlike my squirrel friends might suggest, the treats are meant for myself only this time :) And to make sure nobody pinches a thing, there's a neutral white lid atop of the cardboard tube. 


  1. Love the story behind this make - great idea to up-cycle and use for other things - keep and eye out those squirrels don't get the walnuts.......those little blighters are crafty! xx
