So here's how I made it.
First this project uses two small cardboard matchboxes. I combined them by cutting portions off. I choose to combine them rather than have two separate for additional sturdiness.
To add "glass" I used a piece of plastic from packaging.
Meanwhile I glued the two drawers together. I added flooring to the bottoms. The flooring was printed from my computer.
Then a designed outer walls and a sign on my computer and printed that out.
This was added to the end of the two drawers and also wrapped around the front and end of the box. I wanted to keep a portion of the matchbox showing.
I debated about having a door in between the two rooms, but decided I didn't want to waste the wall space. Matchboxes are narrow so I am not realistic with the area shown, so having door inside wasn't needed.
From Laura Miller - refrigerator and stove, Linda Austin swapped the shelf with two plates, the brown shelf unit was from Marjon de Haas, the small table with the blue and white planter was from Joan Baker, the quilts and the armoire of quilts was from me.
In back section of the shop was a green dressed bed from Linda Austin, Lauren Rein swapped the round glass topped table, the dresser and pink bed from Alison "Ali" Brand. The quilts also made by me - printed on cloth.
Fast forward to today, I added the stone foundation. It was from paper stone that came in the Micromini convention package.
I added the white trim around the door and window openings.
I also cut out a sign for the grand opening and painted the lettering.
It didn't take much time today to finish this up, but it did need time to focus on it.
The two chaise loungers and the sun umbrella were from Virgina Paton.
From the right side, we can see the barrel cactus in floor pot that was from Laura Miller.
Also note the cat on the steps.
These are truly amazing!!! Great job!!!
This is so adorable. Wish I was back into the mini making frame of mine. Too busy quilting of late. But will keep this idea. I usually save those match boxes for "someday."
These are so cute! great work! Hannah
