21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Inchie House Swap - Gallery! on: August 13, 2013 04:50:11 AM
Eeeep... I'm starting to worry my open floor plan roof might not jive with these other contained roofs  Roll Eyes I think the houses I'm making are turning out cute though and don't want to start over  Tongue

Ooh! Now I am curious! And like I said... I'm up for anything - just have fun with it. Liberty Springs will be unique!

Sent out in the morning's post! Now the swap anxiety begins...

I am entering these in the cross category challenge, not that I have any hope of winning... so if you want a sneak peak of the flat versions, you can check them out. Also, swap partners, you have been warned!  Grin

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.

Just finished my last house! It is drying right now... Tomorrow morning, should all go according to plan, I will mail them out first thing.

My three houses are VERY, very different from one another...

LimeRiot sent me such a beautiful little inchie house! Thank you, so much!


The front!


The back!


Side 1


Side 2


Even the bottom was decorated...


Check out the sweet little base!

I really love the colors she used, and all the detail in such a tiny space. And did you see how tiny the writing on it was?! Amazing!

Thank you!

*Someone* just got home from running errands and found a most beauteous inchie house in her mailbox, courtesy of LimeRiot! I love it sooo much! It is fantastic and wonderful, and I can't wait to put it together and post pics!

I just finished Limeriot's little house today, and my 16 year old loved it so much she squealed, especially when she saw what inspired it.

I did goatgoddess's house the other day, and rather like the way it turned out.

Now all that's left is to do one for kartiana. I have an inspiration, just not sure it's "legal" for the swap... So looking at some other ideas as well.

Erm, I pre-scored and pre-folded just to make sure the actual houses work the same as the test houses because of the different papers. They are flattening out just fine, so I don't think it will be a problem or ruin anyone's fun. I just didn't want to risk sending a house that was wonky once folded and glued...

Are folks making their houses more artsy?  Or more realistic? 

I'm trying to tailor my houses to the recipients. The first one I have finished is definitely a house, but is inspired by something on a pinterest board, and not something you'd likely see someone living in.... at least not in the US! The other two... may be more artsy or more house-ish, depending upon what inspires me.
