Here is my Christmas House that I created from a design by my friend, Kathy at Paper Phenomenon. She does a wonderful UStream class on how to create these magnificent paper mache houses. You might remember the Halloween House that I shared a little while ago, from the same design. Below are the steps that I followed....
Adding the designer paper to the peaks to start the decorating!
Why does Blogger insist on turning some photos sideways? Inking the papers :)
Bird's eye view of the fireplace, hearth, carpets, throw rug with fringed edges, and 3D rocking horse.
Another view, this time you can really see the Stickles on the flames in the fireplace, and teh rocking horse. So cute!
Over the fireplace is a mirror made from a frame cut from one of the cartridges (sorry, can't remember which one, and the "mirror" is shiny flashing tape. The candles on the mantle are tiny glass icicle ornaments that are standing in a bead glued to a brad, and tied with floss...so cute!
This particular house was auctioned off to raise funds to purchase shoes for children for Christmas. I am so grateful for those who purchased tickets, and it goes to such a good cause.
I have made another house for my own, but it's not quite finished yet. I'll post a photo when I get it done.
Happy crafting ~
