I am sure that every handmaker accumulates things like blanks, supplies and so on "just in case"... It's fine for me with paints and napkins (not so sure about them ...), but blanks are so bulky! So I made a rule - if I buy a new blank box or frame I should start to decorate it stright away and not hide them in a box and forget about them. This is a wooden frame I've bought recently and finished the same week!
I wanted it to be an elegant piece with a slight vintage feel.
