I made another house. Wanna see it? Here it go:
I decided to do this because I got a box from an office supply store that was the exact size as the one I used to make the entryway for my previous house. I cut along the red lines to split the box in half.
The old entryway had its top cut off, but I left it on the new ones so they would be more sturdy. Besides, I had no idea what I was doing last time, but now I do!
I recycled the red poster board from the old house and taped it to one corner of each box. I want the scrapbook paper I bought to last awhile so I'm putting it in place using HandiTak ($1.50 BigLots). I don't recommend HandiTak because it leaves a stain and that's why I put some tape on the back of the paper first. The back of the boxes are clipped together with binder clips.
This is the basic structure and the two types of paper I'll be using; brick and grass from Joann's. This doesn't have to be the only configuration. Put all the boxes side-by-side, change the entry door, remove the stairs and you've got a business front. Stack them on top of one another and you've got a triplex. Endless possibilities!
Add some foliage, furniture and accessories and you've got a freakin' urban development. Before I go any further, a big, HUGE shout out to Jewel Snake for giving me the idea to use a solar light to fashion my street lamp. Excellent suggestion!
So, let's take a tour, shall we?
All the small foliage is from Michaels. The green table bottom and colored lights are from LIV. The white table top is from the Friends Boutique. The base of the street light is an old desk lamp and the solar light is from Walmart. The little side table is from Just Dreamz. The entry door lights are from Big Lots. The stairs and black fence are Tech Deck. I made the chairs, benches and windows.
And now some scale photos:
And there you have it. Another dwelling designed by Muff. Cardboard and paper, man. That's some awesome stuff.
