making the first two cases.
coffee again to stain the white velvet paper a soft cream. I also made more realistic "keepers" by bending a bit of silver wire around a pin. They are much more realistic now, and are even removable. On the right you can see one of the full scale (but still tiny!) enamel buttons that got me interested in these sets.
P.S. Sorry for the blurry photos! There was only about three seconds of sunlight left when I took this photo, and I was in such a hurry I didn't check my camera!
