222 books, 1 Leitner, 4 book blocks, and 23 file folders at final count and I’m so pleased with it. I wish I was a better photographer because I don’t think these pictures really do it justice.
I’ve actually learned a lot and I will definitely be doing more projects in the future. (Feel free to leave me suggestions!)
This post is already super long so I put everything else under a cut
I want to do a quick thank you a couple of great Youtubers that have taught me a lot about making things:
Bentley House Minis- She is amazing if you want to know about making miniatures and she does some beautiful work.
Ace of Clay- This guy has some amazing tutorials on how to sculpt with polymer clay, which I’ve never done until this project. He also does some really cool creepy sculptures.
Hanabira- They were the first Youtuber I ever watched who did miniatures and watching them made it seem like it was possible for me to do it as well. All of their work is so beautiful and inspiring.
Thank you so much to everyone who has liked and commented and reblogged this project, it’s been so much fun to share and talk about! I really hope people have enjoyed it as much as I have!
Behold, a library of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books in an Altoids tin! I originally found this project at this post by @tiny-cloud-dragon, and as they also put up the templates for it I thought I’d try it myself. It turned out pretty neat! I decided to leave out some of the details on the decorations, but I’m still pleased with how it came out.
Edit: Since I made this post the Tumblr with the templates changed its name, so the link wasn’t working. Hopefully it’s good now!
Giveaway: We’re giving away twenty-one (hello, 2021!) miniature-sized, vintage classics by Charles Dickens, Pearl S. Buck, Thomas Hardy, Mark Twain, Anne Frank, and others. These books are smaller (4.25″ x 6.5″) than your mass market paperbacks, and it took me three years to assemble these! Won’t they look lovely on your shelf? =)
Enter to win these classics by: 1) following macrolit on Tumblr (yes, we will check. :P), and 2) reblogging this post. We will choose a random winner on 28 February, at which time we’ll start a new giveaway. Good luck!
