Mini Candy Shop.

This is another kit that I bought in Tokyo.
But this kit also involved a lot of cutting, measuring, painting before I even could start to assemble the parts. Plus the instructions are all in Japanese, so I had to do a lot of guessing too.
Like making this little door took me all morning to figure out the pieces and putting together.
This little table was also a lot of work to figure out how to cut the pieces, the measurements, but in the end it looks pretty. cute.

The sliding door was not suppose to slide, but I found a way to make them slide and make more real.
The final piece finally came out very nice.
And I just love the details in the store.
I love my little candy shop.

More Japanese Dollar Store

This is another cute package that I got from the 100 yen(1 dollar) store. I really didn't know its purpose, but I got it anyway because I liked the tiny letters.
It turns out to be a cutting tool for food. It is sharp enough to cut soft food, like ham and cheese. And since it is not too sharp, I let my assistant use it.
He found a cookie cutter for gingerbread man and combined with the letters.
It takes a little patience and sometimes a toothpick.
But in the end it makes any toast look happy.
And it makes me very happy.
