Making Miniatures for the Bloom & Blossom Florist

Hello my dear friends,

Hope you are all safe and warm wherever you are. We had some nice days but tonight we are back with rain and the temperature went down once again. I wanted to welcome two new followers to my blog, Hairy Caveman ;-) and Ilona. Welcome! 

So I have been making some miniatures for the shop. I have added more pots and flowers but I do enjoy making my own miniatures. What I enjoyed about this project is actually making the print work. So the first thing that I wanted to do was a seeds display. I printed some seed packets and made the display box to match with the shop's design.

The Seed display

Like most florist, they actually have a card stand where clients can choose a card from to add to their bouquet of flowers. This has also been printed. Then I made the little shelves out of plastic and the little cards where also printed. I just downsized the cards and printed them.

At the moment there is this famous 'KEEP CALM' Poster advertised worldwide. So I decided to design one just for the shop. Mine has the same shop design and color and with the wording "Keep Calm and Buy Flowers" I was really pleased with it.

I also did some polymer clay miniatures. I have managed to do the cash register tilt, a wall mounted phone, Some floor pots for flowers and I also did a desk organizer. The desk organizer was actually made with drinking straws.

Finally I finished making a rack with some shelving where ribbons are sorted and wrapping paper. Little notes are stuck there too. The rack was made out of ice lolly sticks.

So far this is how it looks. I still have to add more details to it. But I am really pleased with the outcome so far. I can't believe that this was actually a kid's kit.

The Shop so Far

Hope you liked what I have done so far. There is quite a long way to go. So please do keep tuned for more updates.

Take Care and see you soon.
