very sweet project. A great mothers day gifts. could be jazzed with old buttons, jelly beans etc. varnish after for a shiny durable finish. also instead of precut boards, you could use strong cardboard and paint with matt black. this is a great way of recycling old cardboard too. If it is not thick enough then layer them up and cover all over with a layer of tissue paper and pva before painting. A real handmade look.
