1/24/07 Mini Containers

What is the most interesting Container you used to either display a miniature scene in or turn into a miniature?

Mine is only a shoe box :flowers: I turned it into a 2 room a/2 scale house for my oldest daughter ;) (I know, hardley NO imagination :) )

I use a cornucopia to do a Thanksgiving scene in it . I follow a tutorial that I got from a mini group I belong to and was written by Tams.

I also did a Halloween scene in a pumpkin

I never used any unusual container. I have only done a couple of completed scenes. :flowers: I have so many ideas though!

I haven't done anything in an unusual container. I almost did my sister's roombox in a shoebox, but DH talked me out of it.

And why did he not like that idea ;) :( I used it because it was something for the girls to do on there own and they were able to use my scraps of wallpaper and carpets to decorate. It was fun.

I haven't done one in an unusual container, but I'm looking for one. Since I did the pet shop for one niece, I need to do a room box for her sister, who is big on frogs. Have been looking for something with "frog pod" ambience but haven't found just the right box/basket/shadow box yet.

So far, the one that comes to mind for me is my 1/2 scale Teddy Bears' Picnic in a Suitcase (cardboard suitcase that I bought at Michaels Crafts).

As Glenna said, I did a Thanksgiving scene in a cornacopia. I think there might still be a picture of it in my gallery.

Thank you. Yes, there's mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, stuffing, corn on the cob, pumpkin pie and of course the turkey.

I built my first roombox into an ornamental birdcage: post-8-1169894530_thumb.jpg and I used watch parts, cocktail forks, a razor-blade pack, jewelry scraps and foamboard to make a stove for the Westville. I've also used seashells & barnacles to make bathroom fixtures (the Arthur blog & my McKinley album).

Tams, what an adorable little meal. Low calorie I would imagine. :lol:

Holly, a beautiful roombox.

Both have such detail and creativity. Wonderful job both of you.
