Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I actually made a full size paper weave trash can(exactly like the R2D2 trash can, but without R2D2) It took forever, and making the lid and making it function properly was so difficult and time consuming. But I put it in my friend Morgans hospital room (she loves hand made things and didn't have a trash can in her room for some reason) and she absolutely LOVED IT. She's out now and has it in her house.
