Alice Tea Party Pop-up Shrine; Everything ALICE on SALE!

Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Giveaways, Sale, Shannon Cooper, Tutorials

I love pop-ups and mechanical cards… and how cute is this little top hat niche shrine (with pop-up Alice and Mad Hatter characters)!

Design Team Member Shannon Cooper made TWO Alice shrines today! This first top hat one is called Pop-Up Tea Time and uses the new Top Hat Little Niche Shrine with a matching solid top hat that Shannon hinged onto the bottom to make a cover for the shrine (and she provides a tutorial, too)!

Starting with a bit of intro from Shannon’s blog post:

This shrine is shaped like a top hat (is it a magician’s? a ringmaster’s? some dapper dancing dude’s? Could be anyone’s!) With Alice on the brain, I made the Mad Hatter’s chapeau with a little surprise inside. I used the Niche Shrine – Top Hat but added a Chipboard Top Hat Blank to the front. The outside is a tad boring, but when the flap is folded down, a scene appears inside.

Inside the shrine is the sleeping Dormouse, the Cheshire Cat, a stack of teacups, and a pouring teapot. (Psst, the “tea” is hot glue colored with a brown marker.)

Soooo clever! Not just the stream of tea made from hot glue, but the whole concept of a hinged top hat with a scene and pop-ups inside!

Read more (and see more photos and the tutorial) in Shannon’s blog post! Above are photos/links for a few of the items from Shannon’s Pop-Up Tea Time Supply List… and keep reading as there’s a related Flash Sale, TONS of new Alice-themed supplies, and a Giveaway including supplies from both this top hat and a second shrine!

Hooray for the
Alice Niche Shrines Giveaway!

I know! Shannon is a crazy girl, and made a SECOND project today, called “I’m Late!” The new Little Niche Shrine – Pocket Watchreminded me of Alice’s encounter with the White Rabbit, so of course that’s what I turned it into. The shrine was painted black and gold, and I stamped a bunch of numbers onto Aged Parchment Scrapbook Paper before gluing it to the front. Details were added with a Micron or gold paint pen. It was finished off with a few collage sheet images, paper roses, and a chipboard flourish.

Wow… EVERYTHING in Shannon’s Pop-Up Tea Time Supply List AND I’m Late Supply List is included in today’s Giveaway! Between the 2 projects, that’s 17 items (7 of which are highlighted at left or below).

    Ooh. I see the pocket watch shrine as a family history kind of thing. Maybe with my grandparent’s wedding photo and either photos of their kids around the sides or historic things. Most of their kids served in WWII so old military designs…
