Birchbark Container Serrated Edge
Handmade Birchbark Container with a Serrated EdgeUse this basic Birchbark Container for storage or add it to your collection. The crafter used Spruce Root to put the container together. Then he or she cut out a serrated piece of Birchbark and attached it around the top of the container with more Spruce Root. A piece of spruce branch adds stability to the top. Otherwise, the crafter left the Birchbark in its natural state.
