miniature plants for a 2020 holiday gift
I realized when I was about to post about the miniature paper plants I’d made for @CanadianFashionDoll ‘s 2020 Christmas gift, that I’d never blogged about her 2019 gift!
With money in 2020 being so tight, and already having a bunch of these cut out from my time back when the Maker Studio was up and running (it shut down at the beginning of covid and has never re-opened) I decided to make MORE of these paper plants for her in 2020, as I did in 2019.
In 2019, I made her a fern and a spider plant in little faux bronze pots.
In 2020 I made two ferns, a monstera plant, another spider plant, and two miniature ivy topiary plants in little white pots with bronze trim.
The way I did the pots and the “potting” of the plants differed between the two years, so I’ll talk a little bit about that here.
Miniature doll furniture made for my friend for Christmas 2020
You might remember for 2019 I gave my friend @CanadianFashionDoll a few different doll miniatures that I made for her. These included:
If you followed me on Instagram there were also some other things there that I realize I never published either!
For 2020 I made a few more things as well, that I’m looking forward to sharing with you!
Both of the side tables I made for my doll-collecting friend.
My recent posts have been about miniature furniture that I’ve made for my doll-collecting friend. (Don’t worry, this isn’t a secret project! I’m not ruining a surprise by posting here!)
I saw these really cute two-shelf tables on Pinterest (looking at all the miniatures has started to fill up my Pinterest feed with more minis…) from 1 inch minis by Kris, and decided to make some myself. While she does offer a pattern, it wasn’t in a laser-cutter friendly format, so I re-drafted it in Adobe Illustrator, making a shelf, legs, base, and top. Continue reading
Small triangular shelf for my friend’s doll display
Over the past few weeks I’ve showed off some little miniature furniture I made for my doll-collecting friend, for her to use in her doll display dioramas. When I was made with the items I’d designed and drafted, I had some wooden pieces left over, and decided to make a few more small things, including this triangle-shaped stand.
Clover-shaped miniature doll stand made from leftover pieces from other laser cut projects.
After making a few different little things for my friend and her doll display, as well as a few items like the wooden medieval-inspired lantern for myself, I kind of wanted to continue… and had some interestingly shaped leftover wooden pieces to work with.
