Teeny-Weeny Kitchen

Hello Everyone,

Look what I made woooHOOOO ...


How cute is that?! Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved miniature things. My friend Trina and I were reminiscing today about those amazing Blue Peter projects we made when we were kids - a hairdressing salon for Sindy out of a cardboard box; a camping kit for Action Man; and who can forget Tracey Island?! Wonderful what you can do with yoghurt pots, toilet rolls and sticky-backed plastic. I used to say that when I grew up I wanted to be the Blue Peter lady who designed all the projects (I would still love to have that job).

When I spotted these little room box kits on AliExpress I couldn't resist trying them out, and now I just can't stop!! The kits come in a little box which contains everything you need to make the room, even the lighting. You can also get them from BangGood. Here's mine all lit up at night ...



It looks better IRL - so many tiny details and it's ingenious how you use buttons, beads, washers and so on to create the accessories. Very fiddly and you need a lot of patience and possibly a magnifier, but I really enjoyed making it and I'm so chuffed with the end result. Here's a closer look ...


The kit includes acrylic sheets so you can totally enclose it and switch the light on from outside, so they would make really sweet little nightlights don't you think?

If you want to see a nice clear demo of one being made up, check out Mimiyuu's YT channel - she makes it look so easy! I'm totally hooked - I opened the next one straight away and in fact have already finished it, but I'll show you that another day!

Thanks for visiting me today, see you again soon :o)
