    Mini Herb Hutch & The Herbarium/Fall Foliage Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

    Mini Herb Hutch by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper!

    Wow! This is so fun! Shannon put a Storage Hutch on top of a Retro Coffee Table (with a quick tutorial on adding custom chipboard feet) and filled it with tiny wonders! Plus she used the new The Herbarium 6×6 Paper Pad to line all those little cubbies… so cute!

    And… as there’s a new sale on The Herbarium/Fall Foliage: everything in Shannon’s project is on sale!

    So back to today’s artwork: here’s an intro from Shannon’s blog post:

    I got my hands on a gorgeous paper pad from Alpha Stamps called The Herbarium, and let me tell you, it is lovely! There are 20 different designs printed on quality paper, and several of the designs have a pearlescent sheen. It is definitely one of those paper pads that you buy because it brings you joy. (That’s not just me, right?)

    I used a few of the papers for a Mini Herb Hutch project. It’s kind of fun having so many cubbies to tuck tiny things into! There are grungy glass bottles filled with dried herbs, mini potted plants, a metal tray (bottom shelf), a ceramic sugar bowl as a container, canisters, a wee linseed oil canister tucked in the back…

    …a painted watering can stuffed with some plant (top shelf), a 1 Inch Detailed Resin Skull, more jars and bottles (resin), and the smallest of mushrooms under a glass globe. I painted the mushroom caps with metallic paint before sticking them into a disk of polymer clay. The globe was slid over the top.

    There’s another group of tiny mushrooms in one of the cubbies (also in left side of close-up below), several plants here and there, and two ice cube trays used for potting little sprouts. The sitting cat reminded me of Minerva McGonagall, so I should give her tiny spectacles.

    Great job, Shannon!! See the wide photo below for a close-up of a couple of those fun-filled shelves!

    You can see more photos on Shannon’s blog post. And here’s her supply list. (Plus see below for more info on the related new sale!)

     
    What else is new today?

    More cute minis! And those Glass Globes (and the oil can) would be perfect in a little hutch like Shannon’s!
