I was lucky to be paired with craftylittlemonkey in the Positive Affirmations swap, and she had magnets and tiny shrines on her questionnaire. It wasn't originally going to be this tiny... but then I decided to use words cut out from an old book, and they looked lost in my larger tin.

Ingredients: Bottle cap, painted black inside. Blue paper, painted with tiny stars. Words cut from an old 007 novel. Golden bangle, fallen from the fringe of a jingly skirt wrap. Stone bunny, in stash FOREVER. Star sparkles inside, round sparkles outside. Bits of purple yarn. Wire charm, received in a craftster supply swap ages ago. And a feather I found outside, I think from a downy or hairy woodpecker.

The magnet on the back came from one of those papermate datebooks with the magnetic closure strap. I cannibalize everything before getting rid of it! In the pictures, it is sticking to a nail in the windowframe. I like finding unexpected places to stick magnets, like running one over your drywall until you find a screw.  Cheesy

I had fun placing all the tiny bits with tweezers! I'm glad clm liked this peaceful little nighttime scene.

clm LOVES this peaceful little nighttime scene. It's too good for the fridge, it's going into the printer's drawer curio display things where I keep all the most precious tiny items. The fact that you used things that have been in your stash for ages is the best, that is exactly my energy. Thank you friend Smiley.

We're pranking mom for her 70th, haha. Please message me if you can help, thanks Smiley.

This is wonderful! I love how even in something so wee, I can keep finding new details to ogle.

I got a craftsterbot notice for this project and brought it up on my phone but it was pure torture to wait til I could get home to see a true pic of it on my bigger computer screen.
On my tiny screen, what I saw under the cap was a bowtie effect piece of material. Once home, I saw it was a feather!!  Awesome!
This  whole thing rocks hard , it is wonderful and of course much more so since it's in such miniature.

There are the Redcoats. And they are ours! Or tonight Becky Thatcher sleeps a widow!

Cute way to recycle bottle caps and add a motivation message.

I think you might have started a new obsession!  So many detailed things of meaning in one tiny cap...

love the feather and all of the tiny stars inside!
