- I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

the Grand Opening of my French Bakery is coming closer .... ups .... I guess it's about time to make some chocolate boxes
I can't possibly sell my little chocolates in a plastic bag, now can I ???
Before I begin with a project, I usually spend some time on the Internet trying to find ideas, patterns, vintage flower paper etc.
I ended up finding this one here in an online scrapbook shop.
So I copied it and printed the pattern on some matt photo paper.
The heart shape is very easy to make, either you buy a punch or just print and cut out a heart shape and use it for your project.
Don't they look yummie in their cute little heart shaped box 😄😄
The inside of the top has a nice little design .... I don't remember if I found this on a free printable site or if I purchased it ??? hm hm, getting old I guess
Again, with my finger next to it, you get an idea of the size
As you can see, you can make square boxes, rectangles, round one's, whatever you'll need
Enjoy trying that project ..... look for free printables and go for it
(yeah, of course, you'll need to make some chocolates too)
See ya ...
