Santa's office in a matchbox

I love working with small things, that way I can make a lot of items and they don’t take a lot of space :smiley:

During the “dark times”, where we were homeless, I decided to focus my time on something cute. Ok, there was discord and reddit, and facebook, so we weren’t completely homeless, but that was more like couch surfing until we got this awesome group.

Back to the cute office.

It’s made out of clay, paint, paper, card stock, beads, some fabric (the bag and hat) and pipe cleaners. On his desk there are tiny letters, some of which has fallen down from his desk as I imagine he was in a hurry to help the elves, or maybe Mrs Claus. I also managed to somehow find a picture of Mrs Claus, which is on the mantle.

The outside of the box has a wax seal with the Norwegian “Merry Christmas”

It’s important to be able to see that something is good even if it’s not your thing, I do that all the time, it’s the critical thinking part of my brain :stuck_out_tongue:

Thank you :slight_smile:

That looks incredibly tiny, what size is it? It can’t possibly be as wee as I imagine, can it?

Thank you everyone :slight_smile:

And size, as in dollhosue size? um, not certain, it’s larger than 1:144 because I have worked with that as well and that’s way tinier XD But it’s a matchbox, you can see my fingers in the photo XD

Wow! It’s truly amazing how much you were able to pack in such a tiny space! I think the Santa hat on the wall is my favorite part.

You must have the steadiest, most sensitive fingers to make such an amazing and wee thing!
