Upcycling again: transforming more tea boxes into doll-size shelves

Back in 2019, I wrote a blog post in which I transformed a tea box into a doll size shelf/bookcase to use as a prop for my doll scenes and dioramas. It was a pretty simple, yet effective idea that I wanted to keep exploring, but never did.
