when i saw the original i feel in love with the idea. Then i was off though my craft stuff to find some old bottle caps i kept for some reason, i always knew they would come in handy. I didn't flatten the edges of mine and it worked out just fine. i put a lot of this brown kinda fuzzy yarn stuff and blue stringy yarn too, i also put paper on mine instead of painting it. Over all i think it worked out quite nicely. On the outside i just wanted to have a bunch of hearts so i cut the backs off some heart brads i had and found this vintage looking little key. All glued together it turned out great.
