This is a tin I made for a friends upcoming birthday - she likes squirrels. Thanks for looking!

Lol, the flaw I spotted is a little gouge in the 'hole' on the lid - it isn't very noticeable to the naked eye, but the camera picked it right up. I'm pretty sure my friend won't notice (she'll be all about the squirrel inside) but to me it feels like showing off a new dress to people and not noticing that there's a stray thread hanging from the skirt until later.  Wink

Thank you so much for the kind words everyone!

This is so cute! I see no flaws. I yjink your friend will love it.
But if you want a trick to finding flaws here it is - look at your project in a mirror. It flattens out the image and highlights details that your eye will not pick up normally. Good luck with that in the future!

Ooh I see it now!! I totally wouldnt have noticed it if you hadn't mentioned it.

And now, even if you make another one exactly the same, it won't have the nail gouge so this one is 110% unique Smiley
