This basket was easy to make following the tutorial from The little blue room .
I just put this together quickly to see if the shape was really as easy to get as it showed, it was.
The tutorial was not made as a mini item so a few adjustments had to be made, but that was not difficult. I used a 3 x 3" piece of card stock. The basket (not counting the handles) came out to about 1 3/4" long, just under 1" high and 1" wide. This size would be good for a floor basket filled with knitting supplies or magazines.
Next time I'll try it a bit smaller and add a bit more details, like the shading and handles in the tutorial.
This is my quick version of a modern planter, it doesn't show well in this picture, it look better in real, really.
See the tutorial from Mini Dork at Modern Mini Houses .
I used a small plastic bead tube and some dried grass from Dollar tree. I sorted some of the smaller stones out of a package of chips but they are a bit too big. I need to find some finer rocks so that more branches can fit in.
While I had the stones out, I picked out a few to use with a candle (a birthday cake candle).
Jaynie is happy with her new items.
Did you notice the carpet, that's new too, upholstery fabric from Joanne Fabrics.
What do you think?
Oops, I forgot to put the basket in the scene.
Jaynie was very happy when I came home with this giant bouquet of white carnations (imitation baby's breath in 1/1). We have enough carnations to last a life time plus some to share.
Here is a close up of the little bunches of 3.
Would you like to win a dozen carnations, sign up for My Give-Away .
If you are already signed up leave a comment here if you would like these as part of your prize if you win.
Here is one of the carnations in a bud vase (stone bead)
Let me know if you would like this vase, I also have some that are a bit greener and some more yellow.
And a couple more stone bead vases.
I reamed out the orange-y one, now it looks more like a vase and holds more flowers.
The grey one is not reamed, I started it but its a lot harder than the other one.
Would you like one of these?
Please let me know what you like.
