I'm really into reconstructing things at the moment i just can't seem to find anything i want to reconstruct! Sad I'm looking for some plain photo frames/jewellery boxes etc.. but i can't find any! They're all already "made" and really expensive! Where can i get some cheap plains things to re-do?

Have you got an Ikea nearby? They sell lots of photoframes and have random boxes in their storage department too. Otherwise, you could try Hobbycraft.

i was going to suggest ikea as well. it took me an hour to get there but i found unfinished wooden frames and framed mirrors for 99p! you can also try online sites like http://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk/ which sells a lot of 'blanks' for cheap prices.

Thanks, I'll try there. I think a hobbycraft is about to open up near where i live now. Undecided hopefully it is anyway. And I'll try Ikea too, and that website. Thanks a lot Cheesy

pound shops are pretty good for surprise craft inspiration, I've found ^_^ I'm always getting really cheap photo frames/notebooks/stuff and revamping it.
