    An Alice Spinny Thing! New Prima Clips; Paper Flowers Sale!

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Fairy Garden, Flowers, Giveaways, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

    Wow! Lots of new items, a big sale on paper flowers, and TWO Alice in Wonderland projects by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper!

    Alice All Around, A Weird and Wonderful Spinny Thing

    My, oh my! This project is so delightful! Not only a new (tiny) room box with 4 rooms (!) but Shannon made Alice scenes in all the rooms! (Scroll down a bit to see the wide photo showing 2 of the scenes.)

    Here’s a bit from Shannon’s blog post to start:

    I am very excited to tell you about a Quarter Scale Four Scene Room Box – Forest from Alpha Stamps! This tiny thing with its long name is simply awesome! It is two flat chipboard pieces that you can paint (or paper, decoupage, whatever!), assemble, and then affix to the round base. That means there are four little areas to decorate until your heart is content. The whole piece is 6″ wide, so each room is 3″ x 3″, with a bit less space as the floor is round.

    And what better way to decorate it than with Alice! And miniatures! And miniature Alice paper dolls! And let’s also make it spin!!! (insert flailing Kermit arms)

    Okay, I am getting a little carried away… ahem. But this four scene room box does deserve all of those exclamations.

    Ha! Shannon’s project and lively text are much appreciated! Note: Shannon added the Lazy Susan so that the tree can spin (not included by default, but a fun idea).

    Plus, what is that little book at left? Shannon also includes an extra Alice project at the bottom of her post!

    Here’s a link to all the supplies Shannon used for the Spinny Thing. Be sure to visit her blog post for lots more info & photos (and a video of it spinning)! AND see below in the Giveaway section for another photo (showing how you can take the characters OUT of the scenes!) and a chance to win lots of the supplies!

    Alice Spinny Thing Giveaway!

    And that promised second photo of Shannon’s artwork! She made little cardboard stands for some of her Alice characters (pics in Shannon’s blog post), so they can stand up and be taken out of the scenes! Perfect for playing paper dolls with a small human.
