Default got my box almost done.

But will post a picture later after I get the bow done. I'm not doing the laminated stuff as I don't have the means to do it so I don't know yet whether I will paint the bow or just stain it and sprinkle some glitter on it. Haven't decided as yet. I'm happy with the looks of the box and I have 3 more loops and the tails yet to cut. Had to stop for the night because my arthritis is locking up on me. Need to get a little rest and then fix supper. Sis went home for a couple of days so it's just me and Mom so will fix her some thing later. I'm not hungry right now but will be in an hour or two. Will post my box when I get it done.. Have a great evening .. Fay

Glitter sounds interesting!
Do a couple of samples before you commit in case you don't like it..

I have 2 more loops to cut and then the tails. I don't know why I like to tackle the harder things first, but once that part is done , it's out of the way. I have some glitter in silver, red and green and I think blue. and also white. I also have glitter paint too. I wish I had some iridescent glitter and it will be just a sprinkle. I think I will try it on a piece of scrap just to see if it will look ok. I might not like it at all. I would probably just put it on the bow and ribbon tails only, not the box. I'm thinking of lining my box. I tried to clean up the glue squeeze out of the inside but it didn't all come out so nice pretty lining in the bottom will look good. I don't know what I'm going to paint or stain the box itself. The wood I'm using is poplar and I read in a thread that if you stain it or put a clear finish on it, the color of the wood might change a little bit so will try it on a piece of scrap before putting any thing on the box. Have a great day Fay

My first set of tails got ruined as my blade was not squared up right, forgot to check it. Got another set cut out and then tried the glitter idea on some scrap wood and I think it's fine for the Christmas holidays but not other than that. I didn't care for it. Going to get warmed up a bit and then go back down to work on putting the bow together. One loop got messed up too so will be using just 5 loops. Have a great day Fay
