Chasing the White Rabbit by Shannon Cooper! New Alice Paper!

Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

Such a cute (tiny) Alice in Wonderland shrine today by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper! Plus a bonus: even smaller than the papers in Shannon’s project is the new Alice 6×6 Paper Pad shown at right: the same selection of TEN double-sided designs but in a new smaller size!

Chasing the White Rabbit

How sweet is this?! From the rabbit’s little 3D house in the center to tiny doors with Alice on both sides in the deep “doors”.

You can see the size of the cabinet from the photo at left, showing just the center section (it’s just 3-1/2″ tall).

I’ll borrow some text from Shannon’s blog post to explain more:

I love little things. I also love Alice in Wonderland. But what I really love is little Alice things!

The Half Scale Theatre Cabinet w Facade – Deep is a perfect size for miniature things whether they are Alice or not. The theatre is approximately 4-1/4″ wide and 2-1/2″ deep when the doors are closed. That’s pretty small! I could see a Halloween scene inside — tiny tombstones and creepy trees or maybe a pumpkin patch with a scarecrow?

Halloween will have to wait a bit longer because this deep theatre is all about Alice.

I started by painting the theatre edges black, then papering the entire thing using the Alice 8×8 Paper Pad. One of the sheets in the set has a collection of frames that happened to fit nicely inside the doors of the theatre. The rest of the paper is perfectly wonderful.

On the left is Alice herself with a key in her hand, curious as to where the White Rabbit could be going! Something else that worked out with this project was the size of the doors from The Garden of Books Chipboard Set of Doors. After painting it with diluted ink, I added paper hinges to the back of the door and stuck it right in the center. The checkerboard flooring from the Tiny Alice Wallpaper Prints Collage Sheet was glued in at an upward angle to cover the gap between the door bottom and theatre floor. The same thing was done on the other side.

Good job, Shannon!! Note that Shannon used the teeny tiny (new) Half Scale Doorknobs & Keys on those side doors (and there’s a few more new half scale hardware items below, too).
