Day 3 – Miniature Cookie Tins and Kitchen Minis On Sale!

Filed under Cat's Away... 2015, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Miniatures, Nichola Battilana, Sale

Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list items from Nichola’s project that are still available on the new site.

It’s day THREE of this week of While the Cat’s Away Giveaways!

And today’s theme is Miniature Cookie Tins!

Oh my! Look at those adorable (tiny!) things at right (by that goddess of tiny things, Nichola Battilana)!

Today’s little foray into cuteness started with the Miniature Square Cookie Tins that Teri Calia brought to my attention. I immediately thought of the need for cookie labels, but both Teri and Nichola have made collage sheets with labels to fit the tins (and their sister Miniature Round Cookie Tins) for all kinds of products:

Absinthe, chocolate, cookies, crackers, jam, a variety of fairy-sized beer labels (yes, Nichola’s collage sheet includes labels to fit more tiny bottles and cans, too), soap, spices, food stuff, motor oil, tea, coffee and canned fruit, veg, treacle and more.

See the ‘We Also Recommend’ section at the bottom of the Little Household Goods Collage Sheet page for all the little dollhouse cans and bottles that Nichola’s collage sheet labels fit.

Check out Nichola’s blog for more info about her Fairy First Aid Kit.

And in honor of the goodies, ALL Miniatures for Kitchen & Sewing are On Sale at 20% off today!

And before I forget: The winner of yesterday’s Chrysnbon Kits Giveaway is Rosemarie Grant! Check your email for info about your prize package!


Hooray! A Tiny Cakes & Cookies Giveaway! In addition to both of the new collage sheets (and one of the new Square Cookie Tins), I added these cakey items:
Large Cake Rubber Stamp (already on sale, as ALL Alpha Stamps Rubber Stamps are on 35% off!)
Mini Cake Stand Kit (part of today’s sale!)
Miniature Coffee Cup and Spoon (part of today’s sale!)
Ceramic Cupcake Bead
Miniature Gingerbread Cookies (part of today’s sale!)
Mini Strawberry Cake

Reminder: Here’s how these While the Cat’s Away DAILY Sales and Giveaways will work: I’ve gathered items around a theme and put together a Giveaway Kit that will be awarded to one lucky person.
