She was then extraordinarily kind and sent me (by real life post !) a beautiful handmade card , and also some business cards for me.
They are all on lovely paper and I been trying, and failing, to do them justice in a photograph ever since.
The gold bands were on the inside of the envelope flap. It was a wonderful surprise to see a sudden golden gleam when I opened it.
I am going to save the envelope for making something special – I don’t know exactly what yet, but it will be something that needs beautiful gold paper.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that Petrina is picked as a Graphic45 Design Team Member for 2013.

I was truly delighted to see it in a real-life room. The little girls look as though they are enjoying themselves, don’t they !
Krin has two blogs (I struggle with one !!!) and in the blog devoted to 24th scale she has made a beautifully neat version of the folding dolls’ house, in 1/2 scale.
This is Krin’s idea and I have not tried to make the house at this size – I am firmly stuck in 12th scale ( or larger).
Krin has very kindly given details of the paper she used…
…so, in case there is anyone who would like to make a very small folding dolls’ house, and who would struggle adapting / converting / printing out and then scanning the 12th scale pdf…
… here are a couple of pdfs for 24th scale –
the coloured patches for the back of the floors
The instructions for making the 12th scale folding house are in the slideshow at the bottom of the post here
I hope you have fun – and I would be pleased to hear how you get on.
