Let them Eat Cake!

Got a birthday or holiday cake? Don’t throw that container out.
This little scene fits inside nicely for storage.
Start out with a little house.

Fill in the back panel with windows, doors and windowboxes to blend in with the front and sides. Landscape, using moss. The windowboxes are filled with green Bunka and clippets of red.
The base is foam core covered with quilt batting.

The snow effect is quite wonderful, a train modeler’s trick. Use diluted glue with a drop of dishwashing soap, and spread where you wish to have snow. Then sift baking soda over the area. Shake off excess once dry.

Then cover.
