Fairy Mixed Media Art Diorama

As a kid I always loved making dioramas for school projects. I remember making one in particular that depicted the Boston Tea party. After I made the ship, I made paper cones, coated them in glue and covered them in tea from teabags. I then attached them to people on the ship so it looked like they were pouring the tea into the sea. When I took it to school the teacher didn't believe I made it myself - she insisted my mother helped me!

I still enjoy making dioramas today, and this one features a bunch of vintage images from The Graphics Fairy. I love the shape of this tin - a sort of elongated oval. I added moss, bark, beads, fabric flowers and magnetic letters. You can see more details about the item in my Etsy listing, here.
