    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!

     
    New & Back in Stock Goodies!

    So many new things to mention today, they’re not all covered in the previews below! Click here to see all 36 of them!

    And a few of these new items are in Shannon’s project, you can view that subset here.

    Love those new Metal Journal Clips! Keep reading (too) as there’s a FLASH SALE, related to the Paper Flowers & Mini Foliage!

     
    ALL Paper Flowers ON SALE!

    The sale ends at midnight on Monday night, May 20th. Click: FLASH SALE to see everything!

     
    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.

    Soooo many options for this Giveaway! I decided to start with these items from Shannon’s supply list:
    - New Quarter Scale 4 Scene Room Box – Forest (of course!)
    - New Green Poly Fiber (for those whispy tree tops — and on sale!)
    - Tin-Sized Alice Collage Sheet (the Caterpillar in the photo at top of page)
    - Thin Looped Dresden Borders – Black (around the edges of the room box base)
    - The Red Queen Collage Sheet (wide photo above)
    - Tiny RED Paper Roses (wide photo above and basically all over the place — and on sale!)

    To enter the Alice Spinny Thing Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, Monday Night, May 20, 2019).

    And what are you going to make?

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello!) correct email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!
