Miniature tea cabinet 1:12 scale

I made this for @kittykill in the Common Grounds swap. I liked it so much that I’ve started something similar for myself! :grin:

I tweaked the original pattern / tutorial to make the drawers and door fully functional. They were purely decoration in the original.

Some progress shots:

I wanted her to have a little room for future miniature bits and bobs.

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

I love this, and it’s awesome that you made it functional! I can’t wait to see what kittykill does with it.

What material did you use to make the cabinet?

I love it SO much! It is in my tea cabinet right now and shall live there so the little fairies can keep their tea cups and treats neat and tidy.

WOWZERS! I, too, love that you made the components functional… that’s what makes it a true miniature version of a tea cabinet and not tiny fakery! :rofl: The decorative paper in the back is such a sweet touch and just the right scale!

Very nice!
Where did you find the tutorial?

https://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com has lots of cardstock furniture tutorials, but I don’t see something like yours.

I love this. I still don’t understand how you can construct these so neatly. I would have globs of glue and disappointment all over it. Ha! Yours are always so beautiful. Love this one and the pink coloring.

That’s exactly where I found it! It’s the Lady’s Secretary, but modified. I left out the small “drawers” under the cupboard to allow more room for tea things.

Thanks for all the kind words, friends! :kissing_closed_eyes:
