Measure Twice. Cut and Trim...
Interesting, but not a lot of fun. First I took a sheet of copy paper and fit it into the two straight side walls. Then I creased and cut....Creased and cut the next wall, creased and cut the bump out....Creased and cut the front corner... and then cut and trimmed until it fit in the space.
Next I cut a piece of illustration board in the same shape and trimmed it, here and there, in slivers until it fit...
I took my T square an drew lines where I want the tile to be...I have it on the diagonal now...I am not sure if I like that or not. Stay tuned... You will find out tomorrow.
If I waited until I had the floor finished to write this, it wouldn't be online until about five this afternoon.
This process takes a while. If you want to see a finished floor, go look at the Southwestern Room Box. http://caseymini.blogspot.com/search/label/Southwestern%20room%20box
Meanwhile, last night I finished this tray. It once was a House Beautiful magazine. Now it is a wire work tray. I used almost all of the magazine to do this one.
These silly baskets are addictive. I keep thinking of more places that I could use them.
I shan't do any more basket weaving today. I have a tile floor to finish.
See you tomorrow.
