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. Smiley 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!

How beautiful! Great work!

I'd be so intimidated to swap with Knickertwist, I couldn't make anything  Wink

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Aw, thanks everyone! Racky, when I saw how many swaps I've never posted separately, I felt the shame. *hanging my head*

Wendiek - don't be intimidated by The Knickers! She's an awesome, gracious and fantastical swap partner. And she's fun, too!
