Oh I'm jealous, the only thing with a container like that around here are pringles chips... Everything else is square boxes. That, and the fact that I reallly don't like oatmeal...

Oh wow!  You would never suspect that used to be an oatmeal container.  I really like the paper you used.  It reminds me of old science texts, very cool!

errr...I guess dimensions don't show too well with digicams! The "wastebasket" is actually a Nestle (or is it Hershey's?) chocolate powder (for milk) container! But yes, that is a remnant of silk!  thank you for the kind words!

You do have me thinking about making a wastebasket now though...
