Snow White and Rose Red

 Fairy tale book box inspired by Rose Red and Snow White

This tale is so sweet, the two opposite sisters who love each other so dearly. Of course I love the enchanted bear as well!  I have such fun hunting for treasures to make these assemblage pieces! The little dolls are hand sewn, I don't consider myself a doll maker but this project seemed to call for it. 

Will be available in my etsy shop

It looks like you've had fun making this :) I still read fairytales and some of the versions of this story can be quite dark! What a lovely idea to have it in a box.x

Wonderful fairy tale book box! I'm not very familiar with the "Rose Red and Snow White" tale, but you have piqued my interest!

thank you for the lovely comments :)

Aquarian it's not a story I grew up with either, I think I found it while researching Snow White tales :)
