Now, enjoy a beautiful altered art project by Nichola! This Typography Postal Station 45 will absolutely make your day. Let's hear what Nicholas has to say about this brilliant altered art project.

"When children visit my studio, they sometimes discover that the fairies who live here have left them notes, postcards or miniature mail. For a while now I’ve been thinking that perhaps my little helpers need their own little post office to work from. With construction supplies from Graphic 45 and Gina’s Design, I am proud to say that Postal Station No. 45 is now processing fairy and elfin mail.


I’ve used Ginas Designs Mini Album Display Case as the base. By upturning the drawer and attaching with a hinge to the top, I’ve created a spot for super secret messages. The piece is embellished using Typography, which is perfect for giving the look of old time billboards and classic advertising and design.


Turn the box around and you can peek inside the mail operations. The bottom floor is a mess with letters and parcels. The second floor might be a bit tight but it’s the perfect size for fairy storage.

I really love this project and I think that it could easily be adapted to personalize for gift-giving to your favourite people. Instead of a post office, design a garden shop with Secret Garden, or a boutique with A Ladies’ Diary. Mix and match collections to create a fire hall, auto garage, castle or toy shop! Just imagine the possibilities!" - Nichola

I LOVE ALL THINGS GRAPHIC 45. Let's start 2014 with a win!!! Happy New Year Everyone.

I am a fan of small houses - I have a mini bakery that my father built, a 6'x6' North Pole house that my husband built for my mother and she decorated it. It even has the stalls for the reindeer and a bakery for the elves. I love the new box that you came out with and I loved the projects shown today.
