    I was looking at some household items the other day and realized the top of a two-liter bottle makes a good bowl for a Grail cup. I added a cardboard tube and strips pf cardboard and covered it in masking tape and paints. Totall time= about an hour!

    I also found an cassette case and decided to repurpose it. I gutted the tape tray and replaced it with a map. I printed and placed a variety of travel and airline stickers from the 20s and 30s on the outside. It now holds my paper props.

    Lol! No, it isn't an original or even a legible one, but the images still looked good on it. I just printed the image on 11X17 paper and coated it in mod podge to toughen it up.
    Thanks for looking!

    looking at the shape, size and depth, the 1.5 liter bottles may work even better. But like I said, I was just sitting around and saw the general shape and decided to have a go at it! Thanks for looking, and I look forward to seeing how your Grail cup turns out!
