So, here cometh Christmas, and I was trying to come up with something to make for Mom. Imagine my creative juices jumping into high gear when I came across a little box full of teeny parts left over from the prototypes of my entry for Craftster Challenge 48. (Here's the link, so you know what the heck I'm talking about: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340237.0
)They were oh so usable that I simply had to throw together another little mini craft studio--for Mom this time.
Since the hardest part of this project is assembling the actual crafting caddy (made from paper, it involves a lot of cutting and gluing if I'm starting from printout), I was very happy to discover that I with a little reconstruction, I had enough pieces of the original prototypes (there were five) to assemble them into a complete cabinet.
The rest of the pieces I made from scratch (glue stick, glue gun, spools of ribbon, pencil, pencil holder, ruler, etc). Much easier the second time around!
Everything here is made completely from scratch.
Can you find the dime?
A teeny little thing, huh?
And I made it into an ornament so that she can hang it from her tree.
Of course, if I know my parents, they'll want to see it all year. So I whipped up a basic little clear display box so it can be left out without getting all dusty. (Believe me, this is TOO tiny to dust! lol)
I'm pretty sure Mom will love this! Yay!
Okay, so is it cheating to reuse an idea? I
don't think so! lol
