MAKE A 3D HOUSE!





Most of us have made houses of one kind or another - house ATCs having been very popular for a while - but now our challenge is to make a truly 3D house! Anything goes and the size is totally up to you - mine are 4.5" high and 2.5" so on the small side, but I think that's because I used to be a miniaturist and seem not to think on a bigger scale!

Can you believe that Linda's gorgeous tall house is made from a drinks carton - AND it serves as a pen container? Both of us have used found objects to recycle as a "frame" to build on - mine were based on a watch presentation box and a ring box!

So we're looking forward to seeing what YOU can do ... let's build a whole town, with extra smartypants points for those who manage to make theirs useful as well as decorative!!

Girls, you've really done it this time! I thought I'd never get started, let alone finished. But I'm done, just under the wire! Here is mine.

These are gorgeous houses!

Here is an altered birdhouse that I built some time ago. It doesn't quite fit the cool altered milk box challenge but it is a 3-d house of sorts.
