Have you ever made one of these? Stiffened a doily with fabric stiffener and draped it over a mold? This is a very quick craft and great for kids too. Miss E saw me make this and wants to do some too. I have a whole heap of doilies from my Nana but I can't quite bring myself to make them into bowls so the thrift store will be my friend again (yep, had to twist my arm on that one...).
I think I am going to use this on my desk to hold office supplies (like my covered bulldog clips).
