The Tip Box of Wondrous Surprises

While at the SLO Farmer's Market Thursday night there was a juggling duo and they had the most amazing tip box! I'm dying to make one. It had all kinds of ephemera, tchotchkes and stuff glued to it and glittered up! Cool. Then when I woke up I realized a box was not something I can easily carry on the train with a suitcase, a diaper bag, a mandolin, and a purse. So this project will have to wait until I get home or until I get to my friend Rebecca's house next week. Some of the chunkier jewelry I got in the bead grab bags will be perfect for gluing onto the box. I'm not sure it will actually be for tips, since I can't remember the last time I did street performing. But I'll find a use for such a wondrous thing.
