A Craft From My Crafting Days Long Ago



I was telling my new friend, Judy F., about a tiny dresser I made from match boxes (did you know they still make those?) and as I prepared to send these photos to her in an email, I thought why not just share them with the whole class? :)

The idea came from a 1930's childrens' craft book called What To Do Now.








The lining paper is from an old Victorian calendar.

This could go inside a dollhouse, but I think it's fun to hide tiny things like rings and a parrot pin inside the tiny drawers. :)

I used to make miniature log cabins with dowels and for the furnishings inside I used anything I could find and made it look like real items. It was so much fun. I still have the church I did with pews, a podium and even an offering place with hole punch paper pieces that look like money.
