I made this for the Wicked Forest Altered Matchbox Swap, found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=407942.msg4811588#msg4811588
I was lucky enough to have Knickertwist as a partner, and this is what I sent her. The matchbox was painted brown and covered with bits of moss and fungus. The cottage is made from paper clay, painted and distressed to look old. I made the tiny stepping stones from paper clay, also.
See the tiny cauldron? Also paper clay. The chipboard trees are painted brown, then green on top - simples!
Inside the matchbox is the cottage potions shelf.
It's hard to believe how small this really is, so here's a ruler for scale.
Thanks for looking!
