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!

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!

I'm sure she is! She never said or did anything wrong!!
It is just that I'm so impressed by her work, it makes me feel such a beginner, haha! Nothing she did, it's all in MY head Roll Eyes

But I'm impressed by all you Craftsters that can make such tiny things!! You rock!!  Cheesy

A miniature matchbox masterpiece!  Love it.  I can't believe you can work that small and have something come out and be so detailed.
