    New Tiny House Box & SALE on all HOUSES!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Miniatures, Newsletters, Sale, Shannon Cooper

    A Tiny House Basket by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper

    Eek! So stinking cute! Let’s start with some info from Shannon’s blog post:

    This month’s kit has got to be the best one yet as it has a wee house-shaped box (or a basket), a little door and two windows, and sweet sweet Spring Farmhouse paper for decorating. Oh, the possibilities! And guess what? That same house is also in pint-size! Be still my heart! It is approximately 2″ x 1-1/2″ x 2″ and can fit inside the original house box. Wow.

    This thing is so small, you could decorate it with all those scraps of things you’ve squirreled away. The pink ribbon and Dresden trim came from my Bin of Snippets, where I throw useless bits until they become useful. To give you an idea of how small this house is, the black trim along the roof is just the bottom portion of a Dresden border, and the windows (which thankfully are pre-made) are a mere 1/4″ x 1/2″! The door is a rectangle of cardboard that I’ve cut a heart into, the doorknob is the teensiest of flat-back pearls, and the flowers come from a package of Garden Growies (aka: Mini Blossoms).

    An aside: the paper Shannon used is from the Spring Farmhouse 8×8 Paper Pad, which is also on sale as it has “house” in the name! More info on this HOUSE sale is below!

    Back to the tiny cuteness (above and below… speaking of the trio of photos below: Shannon MADE that tiny bunny rabbit!?!): That new Tiny House Front Box is decorated by Shannon with a tiny snip of the new 1:48 Windows Set (just a happy accident these fit so well, as you can see the “larger” 2×3 box they were made for on the product page).

    See more on Shannon’s blog post and don’t forget to come back to see some new goodies, an odd HOUSE sale, plus a chance to win EVERYTHING in Shannon’s supplies!

    Ha! I bet you didn’t see that coming! So, this little puzzle box (and another by Shannon, both featured on this blog post) both use the back in stock 3-1/2 Inch Square Box mentioned above. So before I mention the goodies from Shannon’s new artwork that are included in today’s Giveaway, I’m also including one of these 3-1/2 Inch Square Boxes AND the collage sheet AND the wooden blocks!

    Ok… back to the Easter bunny cuteness: Yes, I said it! EVERYTHING in Shannon’s Supply List is included in today’s Giveaway! (Note: that’s not quite true as the importer is temporarily out of the pink color Mini Blossoms that Shannon used in her “windowboxes”… HOWEVER: the winner will get to pick from 3 options! Either stick with pink and get Pink Pollen OR stick with miniature foam blossoms and pick Orange OR Blue!

    PLEASE add your choice to your comment when entering the drawing!
