How To's - The Mini Time Machine



The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures How Tos are a series of instructions that will have you creating your own miniatures in no time! Created with the beginning miniature maker in mind, each project can be easily completed in less than an hour and often with materials readily on-hand.

A hands-on experience makes learning about miniatures super fun. We provide these easy to make How Tos, developed by TMTMs Associate Director and Director of Education, Lisa Hastreiter-Lamb, free of charge so that everyone can experience miniatures first-hand.
