Lace Doodle Thursday: Sand dollar box lid!

Is it a button?

A coaster for a shot glass?

Just a cute round THING?

NOPE! Readers, for this week's Lace Doodle Thursday, we have a LID! For a BOX!

I'm still working on the, well, BOX part of this teeny tiny keepsake. I went ahead and used a size 10 crochet cotton and upped my usual crochet hook size to 1.25 mm, which makes for a MUCH stiffer end result that doesn't require starching!

It did turn out super teeny-tiny. 

Enjoy, fellow crocheters!
