Matchbox Vanity

I’ve always been fascinated by miniatures. The other day I stumbled upon a website of an artist who creates amazing miniature foods. It looks so real it’s unbelievable. If you want to check it out here’s the link. This has inspired me to create a miniature vanity, my style, meaning paper crafting and paper engineering vintage style.

I created the vanity from 10 matchboxes stacked up together in two stacks. I first inked all the edges and covered the front with patterned paper. I used The Station collection from MME.
Once all the matchboxes were glued together I covered all sides with chipboard so the vanity will be stronger and more real looking. I covered the chipboard with the same patterned papers.

For the embellishments on the top I used craft supplies that I converted into different things that are usually found on a vanity. The photo frames are bezels used to create pendants and jewelry. I cut off the ring of the pendant and turned it into a frame by adding a stand on the back. The mirror is also a bezel with an oval shape. The bottles were created from beads, a large bead for the bottle and a smaller one for the lid.

You should try to create a miniature, it’s really fun and satisfying to create something from start to finish and make it look as real as possible. Make sure to watch the step by step video tutorial for all the details.
