Mystery Houses and Book Projects

  • Some miniaturists have created houses for the local library. They contain references to nursery rhymes and children's stories and children are encouraged to look for all the clues to them. (see book projects by Dick Tabor in list above)
  • Look at the pages, decide which pages look best for the scene......hopefully they are somewhere in the middle of the book so it looks mostly even. Pose the book pages as desired in a 90 degree angle. Then I use tacky glue and glue every page to the next one one side and then on the other. I use clips up and down, about 16 to 20 in all. Then when they are all glued, make the floor to fit either in between the sides or have the book on top.......you can do it either way. Then use blue painters tape to reinforce the glue of the floor to the walls.
