Ssshhhh, don't tell anybody I told you but ... our next challenge will involve using a ready made wood or cardboard shape. I call these "blanks" but it seems not everybody recognises that description!

Anyway, this is a photo of the one I'll be using - it's a book shape box which is open for this picture. You can get all kinds - not long ago I altered a tissue box blank, and somewhere I've got some wooden door hangers. You can use any shape you like, but it would be good to see a photo of it before you altered it as well as after!

So your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to go out and get one before Friday!! I got mine from the pound shop .....

I take it it doesn't have to be a box, it could be a flat shape too?
