Temporary to Permanent

Just in case yesterday’s ribbon post made someone think I merely hoard my treasures, here’s a ribbon project I did last year.
After we moved in, we needed a trashcan for the downstairs bathroom. We had just shelled out big bucks for the house and movers, and moreover there was the purchase of a car and one or two sofas looming in the near future. Therefore, I wanted to see whether I could make a temporary solution really cheap. Really, really cheap. As in $0!
After unpacking, I found a small enough cardboard box and fashioned an outer shell for it from an old sheet and leftover ribbons. Then I added a liner, and the trashcan is good to go.
As you see, one of my ribbons was a leftover piece that remained aggravatingly just less than an inch short. I was able to turn that corner towards the wall, though, so it doesn’t show at all.
The finished product fits very nicely in our bath, don’t you think? I have been so happy with it that it hasn’t even occurred to me to replace it yet.
