Oatmeal boxes, Pringles cannisters, tea cannisters, cornmeal boxes make the containers. They are decorated with old buttons, old lace, old jewelry, pages from old books, etc.

The lace in these photos comes from my MIL. Her parents used to keep a general store and the lace was some her Mom saved when they closed the store.
