I made this for the Wicked Forest Altered Matchbox Swap, found here: https://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!

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.

I scrolled through all of the pictures thinking this was a big matchbox before realizing it was only 2" long!! Incredible work. I can hardly believe the detailed you achieved in such a teeny space. Great job!

Congrats on being featured in the 'best of' list for 2014!!
