Oh my life how cute are these bracelets ……
I have seen other bracelets made using dolls/miniature tea sets and have often stood and ummed and ahhed when I have seen sets in Poundland, but have never taken the plunge …… I think I may just have to now ……… I could be so on trend!!!!!
I have also noticed, as I passed on the bus, Wolverhampton has now got a 99p Shop – I wonder if they have a little tea set?
I was a bit disappointed because I thought it was a gift box, rather than a model.
So the treat is the sweets ……. but the trick is trying to get them out! I am so wicked!!!
I’ve used a tiny silver brad for the door knob and the ghost, bats, spider and pumpkins are left over Poundland 3D stickers from last year.

The Cadbury Miniatures were from Home Bargains - they cost about £1.25 and there are 20 in a pack.

The template is in two pieces and looked quite simple but to be honest was quite fiddle to put together.
The bat was originally a ring (I cut off the back) from a bag of assorted bits from Poundworld.
The plate is a piece of gold card that I have written on with a pen with no ink in.
The sweets are “Graveyard Rock” from Poundland!

It’s basically a box in the shape of a book.
I’ve used craft chalk to age the book, rubbing in shades of brown, green and mustard with my fingers, plus translucent micro glitter for a magical sparkle. I’m not sure if I could make the box again ….. it could be a one and only!

The card is finished by mat and laying the centre part on silver card.
