Mystery Box

 things are a little out of order here sorry ....Dont know if its blogger being silly today or my brain ;) I glued some of the wooden pieces together and began carving.
 A little stain and believe me you will see the finished item somewhere among this mess :(
 I cut the top from a lid
 glued a section of golf tee to the bottom and made a cake stand ...finished item later
 here I used bamboo, sticks pop sticks ,plastic container from a punch and other plastic containers , parts of the medical stick on patches to make the lids of the toiletry containers

 from the two matching fabrics I made a bonnet
 this had me stumped for a long while but,....
 I turned it over and used it to mould tiny dolls for the girls in the dolls house
 the insert from the soda lids and the lids from the soy sauce bottles were left as it for a picnic set
 Here he is .../.the carving from earlier ....its supposed to be a hobby horse ;)
 The plastic section from the patches make great fun plates

 A siutcase lined with fabric from the box
 A very 80s dress made with more of the same fabric
 A basket from the bottom of the mint tin
 A toy rocket using the wing nut
 the cake stand after a coat of paint

 more lids cut from the medical patches
 the top of the mint container was seperated from the lid lining and the lining used as a baking tray
I know miniaussie hasnt finished yet but I need to post mine and move on.I know this is all a bit of a jumble but you can get the idea...I hope

I love how you saw SO many things out of the mint container - am sitting here with that :-o look on my face at everything you have done! LOVE the idea of using those bits for lids too..
