‘Building on a Budget’ Challenge Game
By Deb Roberts
This month we have a fun game to play suggested by Anna. Below, you’ll see pictures of a few ordinary items that have the potential to become minis. To play the game, email your suggestions for what an item could be used for in a miniature to email@example.com with the subject line: Challenge Game
In your email, include your description of what you would make of each item……….or you can actually make the item and email a picture of your finished mini. The choice is up to you and we’ll be delighted with all answers! You can pick one or two items, or do a whole bunch! We’ll compile the results in next month’s Gazette to share with all our readers.
Ready? Here we go!
1. Marbles (any size or color)
2. Seashells (any size or shape)
3. Push Pins (any color)
4. Pencil Erasers
6. Suction cup window hangers
7. Cardboard tube
