Very often, when little people come to visit my studio, they will discover that imps, elves and faeries have left them miniature mail. I thought that it was about time that they had a proper place to work from, so I created this post office for them from supplies sent in my Graphic 45 design team package.



The boxy part (excluding the pointy clock pieces) measures 7.25" tall x 5 -ish inches wide. The base of the piece is a Mini Album Display Case from Ginas Designs. The drawer has been upturned and hinged to the top to create a spot for secret messages (or hiding candy). Graphic 45's Typography line embellishes the piece.



Inside there are stacks of little letters and brown paper parcels waiting for delivery.





A complete supply list is available on this blog post

There's also a viddy of the piece HERE

This has got to be one of your best (of course I say that every time you post something!). It's so beautiful and creative. All the little details are just divine. I want to visit your PO and mail a tiny letter!

Lovely post office.
I wonder how you will prevent the kids from playing with it, it's so cute.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Kids are usually pretty awesome and quite careful. Plus, parents totally wig out when those little fingers start to reach out Cheesy In three years I've had one kid break something... and that was totally repairable. Adults are far worse for not handling things with care.
