Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

Once I had determined the layout and cut out the pieces, it was time to start the sections.

Falling Down

Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down what seemed to be a very deep well.

Here you can see I have used the toilet paper tube.

using paper towel tube to make curved areas

I am using two.  Both are cut open in the side.  There is one that is the inner part where the cupboard is and the other is the outside.  I folded it at the sides to fill in – cover the gap between the matt board and the tube.
I have also added the foam core cut out with a hole in it at the top.  I plan to have greenery making the hole smaller. Note it isn’t glued in yet – I will do that after I paint the tube.

I had to decide on wallpaper and flooring, so here is one test.

pink wallpaper? nope I like the blue better
flooring added and adding extra paper to taper the dirt to the walls

I have added the flooring and I have my wallpaper cut, but not in yet.  I am adding some extra paper that I wrinkled and slit to connect the tube to the walls.  I want this taper into the walls.
I have also painted the tube.  I plan to cover it with something maybe some ‘dirt’.

covered with thin tissue paper

Covered with gift tissue paper.  I used thin white glue.  I put out a puddle of glue and use a brush to brush it on the paper and on the tube.  I allow the tissue to wrinkle as I lay it on to the tube.  I tear it at the bottom where the other paper is tapered to the walls.

In the corner

…then she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were filled with cupboards and book-shelves: here and there she saw maps and pictures hung upon pegs. She took down a jar from one of the shelves as she passed: it was labeled “ORANGE MARMALADE,” but to her great disappointment it was empty…

…when suddenly, thump! thump! down she came upon a heap of sticks and dry leaves, and the fall was over. She was not a bit hurt, and she jumped up on to her feet…

This room was visited multiple times by Alice in her adventures. She is holding the bottle.

This table was 3d printed by Pretty Small Things.

The door is made of layered card.

this door was small and she needed to figure out how to get smaller
