Miniature Sailing Boat

This is a toy sailing boat. I made it by carving a wooden base into the shape of a boat and painting with acrylic paint. The sails and flag are made from paper ribbon glued to very thin cake decorating wire.I made a hole in the wooden boat with a pin then glued in the sails. It measures 1.5cm long and 2cm high.

Miniature Xylophone

I just felt like making some miniatures because it's been a while. This toy xylophone is made from a matchstick cut in half lengthwise then half again with 2mm wide quilling paper for the bars glued to the wood. I had to cut 1mm from the paper as it was too wide. I used a silver pen to create the look of nails holding the bars on. The beaters are made from very thin cake decorating wire with a seed bead glued on the end.It is 2.5cm long.
