Okay, so ages ago my sister and I visted Mexico and she had her eye on some of the crafty boxed minatures that we saw in a lot of places. She didn't really have the money to spring for one so I fiiiinally got around to making her one for Christmas.

Its made out of that Crayola foam clay stuff (can't remember what its called), an old el paso taco box (accidentally themed - it was the first thing I saw that would work), some frabric scraps, acrylic paint, and lots and lots of glitter.





I made the figures removable so that she could get a closer look at their cute little costumes Wink

Close up of their rings (the diamond is a nail gem I glued to a small piece of wire I wrapped around my pliers)

The colours look a bit off since I hurredly took the pics against a white background and I had to adjust the colours






Smiley Crits and comments welcome!

Lol normally glitter is NOT one of my go-to craft materials - I'm so out of my element with "sparkly". I love it in this piece though Smiley
