Newer photos. Changed my mind on the sides lol

!. page in the mini album

Created this album to write the story and also place for pictures

Back side of the album

Used metal tag staples for the closure. They are magnetic so i used magnets on the side of the box

Curtains can be foldet together and place for the mini album inside

Here is a picture of all the things to use in the theatre 

Mini album to write the story about Alice and for pictures

Created some open strips on the top to slide in different images to tell the storry

This images are fastened on acetate strips and go inside from the top of the box

This is going behind to create different backgrounds. There is a lot of 3d effect here

This is going behind to create different backgrounds. Never ending table with tea and flower pot

acetate background for when Alice falls down in the rabbit hole

  3. How do you make those cool curtains? The are similar to the ones you had on your Olde Curiosity Shoppe Shadow box.

    1. Hi Sheryl,

      The curtains are made by scoring every 1/4 inch and folded. I use caluduine hellmuth on the curtains so they wont tare before i score.Have fun creating :-)

  4. Fantastic work! Such a wonderful imagination!

    I so enjoy watching your videos.

  5. Another AMAZING creation from our Anne... Good Luck in the Graphic 45 challenge...I'm sure you will win with this fabulous project. Children will love it as well. Keep up the great work... I so enjoy following your creativity.

  6. Sensational puppet theatre, Anne! What an extraordinary piece of recyling... I would love to vote for you but I'm not a Facebooker (and it's staying that way!!), I"m so sorry...

  7. It's brilliant Anne. I love both miniatures and puppetry and also recycling the most unlikely objects. This project combines all of these to perfection.

    Sadly, like butterfly above, I am not a Facebooker and never will be, and so can't vote for you....I'm very sorry about that.

  11. What an incredibly magical and talented idea! When I was a child, I made a puppet show by putting my paper dolls on popsicle sticks and holding them from the bottom up (like finger puppets). The acetate idea from the top down is genius!

    Can't wait to see the video.
