The Mini Steampunk top hat

My brother wanted me to make a square one - so here it is!
It's made out of a paper coffee cup, some foamcore board, scrapbook paper, netting, feathers and some glitter.  That's my mom's head.  I make her model these things.

The little Steampunk House

I saw someone had altered a cute birdhouse with the new G45 Magic of Oz paper so when I found birdhouses for $1 at Joanns I had to try it!!

  Here is the little Steampunk House - I'm still working on it....

Halloween hats........

I'm making mini top hats for the Halloween craft show.  Here are 3 of them so far.  They don't have the headbands I normally put on the bottom.  Right now I'm thinking I might add combs instead.  I'm not sure how sturdy that will be - since I'll be using hot glue.  I will have to figure it out soon. 

I love this spider paper.  Makes a great hat!

Steampunk scrapbox

Well, for another challenge I am making a scrapbox - a kind of LO only using 3D type embellishments and dimensional things.  Of course I chose to do something in a steampunk style.  Here's my mini scrapbox!
I have a ton of altoids tins so I am trying all kinds of things with them.

Le Cirque

Here's a mini I am doing for a Flying Unicorn swap!  This is the cover.  I like it a lot and I hope whoever gets it likes it too.

I really like the ribbon on the right.  And then there is a flap above that opens.  I made the pocket fairly deep using popdots.  I also found some cool vintage circus photos to use as one side of the picture matts.
On this one, there is a side pocket and then the photo of the strongman and his girlfriend lifts so you can add another photo.  On the right there is space for a photo then that Mayhem part flips up and you have a big photo matt.
The Barnum & Bailey ad pulls out - it's on a brad so it folds back away and you put a photo on the back side of it.  I fold the bottom of the paper sack back on itself to make a secondary pocket and place brads on both side.    Well, that's my project.  It will be mailed off and I will get someone a mini made by someone else!  I have no idea what it will be like only that it is a paperbag album.
