Here's a shrine to childhood I did recently. I found the baby in a box of supplies that my grandmother had, and I just really liked it for some reason. The rest of the doodads were just junky stuff from my kids with some found objects. I had to include sticks, feathers and shells, because my girls were always "collectors" when they were young.

You girls are making me blush again!

Rackycoo - that's beautiful! Is it one of the foam core boxes you built?

I have to go insearch of rice paper this weekend. I have a couple of good
paper stores not too far away that will hopefully have it.

It is made with a foam core box, directions right out of the book. I think it needs some feet on it, but other than that, I'm pretty happy with it.

You'll love working with the rice paper. It covers so nicely and wrinkle free. This is the first one I actually painted. Generally I like the color and texture of the paper.

Do you cut the various pieces to size/shape first, then cover them or do you assemble it and cover the whole thing?

This should have a logical answer that comes quickly to me, but my poor addled brain isn't working well this morning.

Cut and cover, then assemble. It's really fun on the first project, but after about three, gets a little tedious. I need to start using more ready made boxes!

I like ready made boxes, but it can be hard to find sizes that I want. I've been trying to convince my husband that he needs to get into woodworking so he can start building them for me and he told me that I should learn myself...I told him he was no fun at all. That and there is that fact that I'm dangerous enough with exacto blades & soldering irons...I don't need to add saws into the mix.

So when I got the book and saw that hers weren't wood, but foam core, I got very excited.

balsa wood is a lot easier to use than regular wood. i've made shrines from both before and using the saw is a little crazy, a lot more work. balsa wood you just whip out the exacto knife/box cutter. much better. and balsa wood comes in nice even pieces. trying to get the wood to be nice and even, hmph!
