Pasta display box

Old idea again, a pasta box. Sometimes the simplest structure prove to be the most difficult to make. I had a hard time with the little partitions of the box to make everything perfectly fit and perpendicular to each other. And I had to make the acrylic lid twice, since I accidentally scratched the first one (of course after it was totally ready with the handle). I add a tiny label with "Hungarian Miniatures" lettering on it to the box, that is a new thing for my work. A lot of people ask why I never sign my miniature. So far I didn't give it much thought, but it's time to change that. Of course some of my minis haven't got the place even the smallest signature, but the larger ones like the preparation board and this pasta box will definitely have it in the future.
Making the pastas... Now it's another story. A long long one...
Size of the box: 56 x 69 mm.

That's a beatiful box with pasta's Bözse! A tip for scratched acrylics/plastic surfaces: clean it with a little windowcleaner and a soft cloth and then gently polish with a little toothpaste for a few minutes, wipe of the toothpaste under running water and you have a perfect surface again!

Thanks the tip! Next time maybe I don't have to redo it.

I can't believe this is miniature! It's truly incredible to see such tiny pasta, and of course the box is totally perfect.

I like that you are now labelling/signing your work :)
