New Shrines, Spring Stickers & Alice Tea Props

Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Back in Stock, Newsletters, Playing Cards

New Masonite shrine kits (with some creative art projects by the Design Team)! And colorful new stickers for Spring (and some props worthy of an Alice in Wonderland tea party)!

First, let’s start with 2 shrine kits perfectly sized for displaying an ATC (or use either of the Masonite ATC windows as a facade). One is a bit deeper (for accommodating adding feet) and the other has legs built into the sides.

ATC Box Shrine
A flat kit to make a sturdy, little box perfectly sized to hold an ATC. 1/8″ Masonite. Instructions included.

Finished size is 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 x 1-5/8″ deep. (Deep enough to accommodate adding feet.)

Shown at left with a Fancy ATC Frame.

ATC Hutch Shrine
Finished size is 2-3/4 x 4-3/8 x 1-5/16″ deep.

Legs/feet are built into the side panels.

Shown in the smaller photos at left with a Fancy ATC Frame and ATC Window.

And both of the art samples above are by Design Team Member Rhonda Secrist Thomas! (Click on either photo for info on all of the other components Rhonda used.)

And in honor of these cute shrines that fit ATCs, ALL of the ATCs Collage Sheets are On Sale! (But catch ’em quick as they’re only on sale through Saturday night, March 30th… one more thing, don’t forget that the Spring & Summer Flowers Collage Sheets are still On Sale, in case you need images for the Spring Fling 4×4 Swap).

Even more new Masonite shrine kits are below… starting with an adorably tiny set of two houses, with artwork by Design Team Member Rhea Freitag.

Cubbyholes – 35 Compartments

Display 35 “inchies” in one compact shadowbox! The completed shrine measures approximately 5-3/4″ x 8″ (pretty small for 35 cubbies). The thirty five cubbyholes are exactly 1″ x 1″.

You can also cut out portions of the dividers to create larger cubbies (using a saw, Dremmel, or heavy duty scissors). See the artwork below by Rhea Freitag for an example.

Below is just a portion of a Spring Shadowbox by Rhea, also using the new Small Ceramic Owl Beads shown at right. View all the components in Rhea's artwork; or see more photos in the Gallery.

 Recap of Thursday’s Hinged Kraft Box Tutorial by Laura Carson

I love the hinged Couture á Bejeweled wardrobe that Laura Carson created, using her own (new) Bejeweled collage sheet.

Here’s an introduction by Laura herself: “Much of the décor you see comes from my new collage sheet Bejeweled. Images of vintage jewelry are one of my favorite things to use as an embellishment. The great thing about using an image (instead of the real thing) is that you can use it over and over in different ways.”

 Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Props

Not only did Laura Carson use the new ATC Box Shrine (turned on its side, with an entire tea party staged inside) for her "We Are All Mad Here" Shrine, but she made a clever staircase by cutting slashes in a 3 Inch Tall Candlestick Holder and using tiny playing cards as the stairs! All the components in Laura's artwork; more photos in the Gallery.
