About 2 years ago, I participated in an Alice in Wonderland-themed craft swap. The one item that I was most excited to make was a shadow box. The inside is filled with a hand cut-out Alice silhouette, surrounded by sprays of flying playing cards, and mounted on a checkered rose background.
|Out of the box...|
|...and inside the box, mounted on the wall.|
|Favorite part, flying cards!|
What would an Alice-themed set be without a Mad Hatter piece! This was made to be worn as either a mini top hat, or a just as a nice shelf decoration.
My swap partner mentioned that she liked necklaces, and I just happened to have these adorable tea set charms laying around.
|Paired with a Casual Lolita sweater!|
This next piece started out as a rather Mister Rogers-looking cardigan, so I added a card appliqué and replaced the buttons with playing card ones. Then I jazzed up the collar with some venise lace.
After a few fairly large pieces, I thought I'd add in some items more appropriate for everyday use...
|Victorian hair pins...|
|... and some background music to set the mood for your next tea party!|
|Tiny frosted vanilla cakes filled with jam...I always have to visit when I'm back home!|
