< little teaser photo

This month's Alpha Stamps theme has to be one of my all time favorites: tiny steamer trunks! We each got a 2" by 4" steamer trunk kit and directions for assembly. From there, the sky was the limit. I decided to make a little trunk that looked ordinary on the outside, but inside, contained everything a tiny traveler would need to have a truly comfortable voyage. Who's the tiny traveler? This little 2" painted peg doll. I had some adorable tiny crowns, so I popped one on her head at a jaunty angle.


On the outside, her tiny trunk may not look like much...


...but when you open it, you can see the tiny traveler and all her goodies snugly tucked up inside. On the left, there's a trundle bed on hinges, held to the wall by some ribbon with velcro, a charming wire chair, and the tiny traveler herself. On the right side, there's a top drawer containing bedding and a pillow, a drop leaf desk, and a bedside table and lantern, held in place with another velcro'd ribbon.


There are all sorts of fun ways to set up this trunk.


This was one of my favorite kits ever. I'm working on another trunk even as we speak. It's fun to see how many little things I can cram in there. Cheesy If you want to see an obscene number of more photos of this trunk, they're here on my blog, where you'll also find a little more about how I made this, plus a link for supplies.

Just for fun, one more pic for the road:

What fun. So many interesting things crammed into such a tiny space - and they are all functional.  What a great project.

Your tiny trunk makes me wish I could shrink down and sneak in to travel!  So many cute details!  Also, it has moving parts...and how you squeezed the mattress into that tiny space is beyond me!

Fantastic, rackycoo!  Indeed a favorite project...it rocks!
