In this video Lili will show you how to make miniature books. She uses several different techniques and uses our own 'Books Printable' that is available for download. Mini books are super easy to make and they will bring your Mouse Mansion to life!
One of the main characters that returns in every book is the Ragman. He is Sam's uncle, and has his workshop in the front of the Mouse Mansion. Sam and Julia regularly visit him. The Ragman collects old rags, paper and metal in his workshop. Every day he goes door to door with a cart to collect. His call is well known: 'Rags, rags, who want to get rid of their rags?'.
Last week we wrote an article on ‘the making of’ several sets from the fun fair. This is the second part!
Lets start with the Haunted House. It consists of an outside and an inside. The outside was made of a cardboard box and covered with a layer of papier mache. After that, Karina painted it with faux-rocks, just like real Haunted Houses. The prison-bars are made from skewers, and the skeletons are key chains that we found in a Halloween-shop. Funny right?
