Mini Curio Cabinet

Mini Curio Cabinet


This mini curio cabinet was made from the obvious found items and a cleaned out makeup container. I made it for the Wonder Cabinet Fantastic Relic Swap. This is the story letter I created to go with it:

I love the idea of the note its just so cute and makes it all that much fun to create with. If the items for a child you can give it to them and tell them its magic.

Thanks! She loved it, too! She even said she loved how it could be opened for all the pieces to be touched. The cool part is: I was going to glue it shut for the safety of the pieces, but at the last minute, for reasons unknown, I decided not to and scraped the glue back off! How perfect is that!?! :)
