My Ginkgo Girl Present

Here is my Christmas present from my mother - isn't it great?! Look it fits perfectly! The gun box is one of my salvages from a museum store a few years back. Not sure what I am going to use the box for yet - ideas are welcome. It is a bit smelly though, because it used to contain butterflies and the collector put naphthalene inside. The naphthalene stops other 'pest' insects eating the pretty insects which collectors want to keep.


  1. long stemmed dried flowers could be stored just perfectly in that box and the bugs wouldn't eat them. Great ginkgo piece.

  2. I think I need to remake it a bit bigger?
