I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Ever have a total harebrained idea that actually worked out? Of course you have, you're a crafter! My recent crazy thought was turning a chipboard playing card into a miniature bed for a witch. It is made from the card, various pieces of craft wood, fabric, and batting. That's it!



Here is what the chipboard playing card looked like prior to me chopping it (image belonging to AlphaStamps):



After making the bed, it needed a mattress:



Then sheets and a pillow:



And is currently awaiting the arrival of the witch.



The instructions for making the bed, mattress, and sheet can be found on my blog but you will have to find your own witch!

Why oh why do you live so far away? Every time you post your wonders, I envision mad crafting hang outs....!

This is amazing, btw....
