Hi friends. Sorry it's been so long since I've posted.
The last couple of days I've been working on a little box - shaped like a house. I know there are some dies out there that you can use to create something similar, but I was sure I could make one without a die.
I remember my dad making little wooden houses and other buildings from 2x4's for my siblings and myself when we were children. He painted them, including windows and doors. These little boxes remind me of those.
I wasn't sure what size to make, so I started with a prototype from a JoAnn's flyer, which was 6"x11". I ended up cutting a half inch off the end.
Once you have the sides stamped or decorated, you can start putting it together. I flip it over; fold the 2" and 1/2" panels toward the center. Using whatever adhesive you choose (I used Tombow Mono multi glue) by putting adhesive on the 1/2" tab. Fold over the farthest panel and press onto the tab.
I added the designer paper after I had the house all glued together, but it would have been much easier to do it first. I only added embellishments to one side. The finished size is 4" high, 3" wide, and 2" deep.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
