Craftster means many, many things to me... and a big part of that is craft swaps! I love getting to know people from all over the world, and truly, for me, giving is the best part. I love stalking my partners and coming up with the perfect thing for them.
I made these itty bitty houses for the inchies paper house swap I'm currently participating in. Each house has to be shipped flat, then assembled by the recipient, so you get to see the flat version here... Once they are assembled, pictures should be posted in the swap gallery
The first house was inspired by another craftster project
that 'partner A' had pinned...
Each wall is 1"x1". The stones were painted with water color and a very tiny brush...
I really like the way my shingles turned out... I used a paper punch and shingled just like on a regular roof.
The second house was inspired by this bag/box
that 'partner B' had pinned.
The last house was inspired by some butterfly wings
that 'partner C' had pinned.
Each house was mailed in a slightly decorated envelope, just for fun.
