Ivy Hollow - tiny parcels

by brae  

At this point, there's so much left to do on the build that I'm having no time to blog. I've posted a few things on Instagram, as some of you know. Since I like a big reveal but have chosen to build publicly this year, I think the next few weeks are going to be more like sneak peeks than long blog posts for the most part. Anything I don't get to cover in depth I can certainly do after the deadline has passed. Fingers crossed I can pull it all off.


Now that we have seed order form mailers and catalogs, we are receiving packaged goods! At The Miniature Show in April, I bought some packaging kits from Looking Glass Miniatures.

I used this kit for its parts and will get to what I did with the boxes portion in a later post. It was nice to have the Fragile labels and shipping tags for post office stock. For parcels, I wrapped wood blocks in the kit's kraft paper and twine, using old labels found online. Obviously, parcel post labels are harder to find than old letters and postcards as the wrapping would usually have been discarded. :]

The parcels look wonderful, like someone can't wait to tear them open to find their order inside. Can't wait to see more. But I know what you mean about either mini-ing or blogging.
