A mini cigar box bed for Alpha Stamps

I am smitten.


It's a new month and the kit theme over at Alpha Stamps is 'Cigar Boxes'.
Everything is absolutely lush!


The Tiny Cigar Boxes* are darling, just the right size to fit in your hand, and the papers are delish. And that super thin, striped washi tape? Adorable!

I did debate on including a sort of sentimental treasure inside. I thought of filling it with trinkets and charms... but instead placed a small mattress, sheets and tiny pillow. Someone gifted me a lovely little faerie bed in a box last year and I've been wanting to create one ever since.

I think this one may be 'abandoned', with a tiny stack of bedtime stories and a note, perhaps in a library snuggled between the stacks of books :)

Want to create your own? Excellent! Here's the list of bits and bobs you'll need.


  1. What a great idea!! I have a fairy garden in my craft room and my grandsons TRULY believe that fairies come out and play there. This little bed would be perfect for them when they want to lay on a soft and comfy spot. They have a couch and some chairs but no bed as of yet!! Will have to see if I can come up with a way to make one!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Absolutely adorable Nichola. I love how it turned out, and especially your idea of abandoning it. Someone is going to be so surprised.
