How Business Was Done In Old Bombay


People have suggested using a staple remover as an object since forever, but I wasn't very interested. Today, I felt inspired after seeing this one in my managers' desk (we'll see how long til it's missed). [edit- It took about 48 hours. Turns out someone from work reads my blog occasionally. Note to self- be more careful!]

I had taken some wire and some pliers to work today, not knowing what I was going to make. I found the remover right before lunch, and managed to pretty much finish making this between my lunch hour and last break. We've had this great basket for a few months, and the thought of using it for this image popped into my head as soon as I saw the staple remover.
