Old Glass and Another Apothecary

This is a much smaller version of the Fairy Apothecary I showed off earlier in the week. I had a couple of requests for a tutorial and an AlphaStamps deadline looming so... ta dah!

This is probably about 1/4 the size of the earlier version, but crammed with just as many wee jars and bottles and vials. Overall size is approximately 3" x 5.7".

I've skipped over the box assembly in the video tutorial. It's easy peasy and you can look at the old vids on my channel to see how I generally stick stuff together and cover with paper.

Instead I've focused on recreating the look of authentic old glass. It's not over the top grungy... but it absolutely replicates the appearance fairly accurately.

So hop over to the tutorial HERE

And grab all of the supplies you need HERE

Or here's all the bits listed separately:


  1. I love this. I imagine there's a wee bookshelf sitting beside it full of loose sheets of recipes and ancient tomes.

  2. Oh, this I want to make for my own household helpers!! Maybe then they won't have to rearrange my cupboards looking for their own little bottles. . . I LOVE it! :)

  3. I love your aged bottles and the way you have displayed them in your fairy shelf unit! Simply Magical!
