From time to time the materials that I use to make something become unavailable.
A good, recent, example of this was the large box of Wilder’s Fireworks, shown in the photograph above.
I made both of these boxes of fireworks, and both boxes are marked / dated on the back.
The paper used to cover the box is different.
The paper used for the label is different and the printing method / printer used is different.
However, they look similar on the outside, and so does the arrangement of the fireworks.
The box on the right was made in 2006 and it has been played with.
The box on the left was finished this week and it is pristine and new.
The contents, and arrangement of the contents, have remained the same since 2006.
The box, and the arrangement of the fireworks inside it, vary slightly from box to box. This is because they are handmade and not mass-produced.
The new box is a fraction larger than the old box –
Just under 2 (5 cm) inches long
Just over 1 and 1/4 (3.3 cm) inches wide
Just over 5/16th inch (0.8 cm) deep
The box contains 13 fireworks, and these are fixed in place in the box.
I did not invent fireworks, or a box to put them in. However, I do make these particular boxes of fireworks and so I now have to add the following caveat –
All copyright, design rights and intellectual property rights existing in my design and products and in the images and text on this website are and will remain the property of Elizabeth Plain 2013.

I was hoping to blog about Spoonflower’s fabric this week, but it (naturally) takes longer to make up a swatch pack than it does to print one sample piece and so I am still waiting for my swatch pack to arrive.
I still think that Spoonflower’s service is incredibly fast !
