Its Wednesday, again! Where does the time fly?
We have another Product in Spotlight and this week it is a die set that is a little older to us at Crafts U Love but sometimes these dies can get overlooked for some reason or another so Caz thought she would give her die set a work out and created 4 little houses that would look cute hanging from the Christmas Tree, filled with festive treats or look warm and cozy on the mantel piece with battery tea lights inside.
Here is the House as Sizzix has demonstrated it on their packaging.
As well as the house you get a round and square window, door, flower and Heart so there are lots of decorating possibilities.
The house from bottom to top measures 11cm
and the main body of the house measures 5.5cm x 5cm
And here are some that Caz has made.
With the stripy paper and Kraft Coloured card
it reminded Caz of a Gingerbread house so she used
the candy cane to decorate either side of the door.
Add that cute little heart from the set and it finishes it off perfectly.
This one, and you can not see in the photo has the Opal Glitter
card on the roof giving it a shimmery finish. Lovely and Festive!
The tree was cut twice and the top one folded in half to create a 3d tree.
This one is a bit more Rustic and Caz used the
Elizabeth Craft Designs Stone Paper Pad and this one
has a golden roof. Caz's Moto, you can never have too much
glitter card at Christmas!
Last design is this simple but pretty house, a pastel plaid roof and
used a left over piece of the Marianne Wreath cut in gold.
These houses were such fun to make, untold paper choices, placement of the windows and doors is totally up to you how you design it. Caz used Acetate in the windows. And when you place a battery operated tea light inside you have the soft glow shining through the windows.
I hope you like this weeks projects and are maybe inspired to make your own Little Houses.
