About this title

Synopsis:

Eight self-contained miniature worlds, each set within a complementary container and replicated in accurate detail. Styles vary from the period charm of the Victorian milliner and haberdasher, contained in a hat box, to a fairy house conjured up in a hollow log. Each miniature has step by step instructions and uses recycled materials.

From Booklist:

At last a how-to crafts book that doesn't try to cram all types of instructions into too few pages. Instead, editorial consultants Susan and Martin Penny prefer to leisurely space--and pace--their information, concentrating on seven quality projects. They start with an in-depth look at different materials; each "ingredient" section includes a list of necessities and also features how to fashion individual miniature accessories--a chocolate box of wood, tiled floor of plastic, wallhanging of paper, tomato of FIMO (a polymer clay), and more from other found or household items. The main draw here? Seven unusual containers, all inexpensive, whether an old enamel teakettle or unused octagonal hat box. Each vignette is well documented and explained and, more important, thoroughly original. What child wouldn't delight in a closer examination of the Wizard's Spell Book? Barbara Jacobs
