    November 1, 2011

    How do you make cute crafts even cuter? By shrinking them, of course! But cuteness is only part of the appeal--these crafts also use up the random odds and ends that most crafters accumulate as part of their creative process. From tiny stuffed cats and dogs to two-inch tall greeting cards to an impossibly cute mini-solar system mobile, there's inspiration here for crafters of all types. Of course, it takes a lot of talent to work with tiny pieces of fabric, felt, clay, and paper, but with results this sweet, it's worth a try.
