Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

Witch in a box

I needed a gift for a friend who happens to like witches cats and spiders, so I decided to put all 3 in a box as a gift.
I first lined the box with scrap book paper and covered the outside with some spare roofing tiles. I pva and watered over the top to finish them off and I stuck some ribbon and a spider to the front door with a wooden bead to fasten it off to at the side.
I created a small witch and used shrinky paper for the cat. Glued them in and hey presto a witch in a box! A quick and easy to make gift.
