Oh Bunny, what I wouldn't give to get invited to this!

Ludi do share what you're plotting! The quotations around house do intrigue me!

My wee house has been vandalized!  Looks like some hooligans got at it and added some graffiti Smiley
 
I also decided to add stairs up to the attic in the front bump out, although they're looking a little rickety, I wonder if they'll hold up if anyone tried to use them? The window overlooking the upper veranda will be a doorway, wish I decided that before I started gluing it all together. Sad

I feel like I have my private set of cheerleaders! Smiley Made a little more progress, except I noticed that a lot of you have blogs...which are so much fun to poke around but takes away from crafting time!
So here are a couple of my in progress pics next to the inspiration pictures I'm using from here: http://m.imgur.com/a/ImCht

Some more in progress photos.  It doesn't look like much yet, but my wee house is coming along.

One more to show the slate roof too. The clips are holding the roof on since I cut off the tabs. Smiley

J_kieviet, do share some in progress photos!
Ludi, thank you although my efforts are amateurish next to your great work! The detail on the bridge is amazing!
CMarion, thanks for the tips! I'll have to get to the craft store and look for gel medium. I put a coat of minwax sealer that I had on hand, but your right it'll take a lot of coats since it soaked right in!

So a little update: I'm going for derilect mansion. My insperation is the Rothschild Mansion in Paris http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/02/28/the-rotting-rothschild-mansion-in-paris/ and the photos from urban explorer Andre Govia http://www.viralnova.com/abandoned-mansion-belgium/
But with a twist of my own. So I've started on the brick walls.

Knickertwist, that tin is awesome! (And can one really hijack their own thread?)

I got the Fantasy house put together for a dry run...it only took me about 6 hours over the past week of serious craft time...by serious craft time I mean while drinking champagne, talking to my hubby, watching trashy tv....I then took it apart and started working on the roof tonight. I'm using the egg carton trick to make it look like slate.  I'm going for "woodsy dilapidated" of a once grand mansion.
 Can anyone recommend a good non-glossy sealer for the egg carton?

Hello wee house makers! So I first bookmarked this thread way back when there were only 35 pages as inspiration for building my first fairy house for a fairy house festival. Our house placed that first year, sadly I don't have any pictures of that one, but here are some in progress shots of the one we entered last year.

9  Interfacing and Wedding Invites...Help Please in Discussion and Questions by SuzyScissor on: June 23, 2013 08:15:05 AM
I'm using interfacing as belly bands for my wedding invites and need help on figuring out how to adhere everything. 
Basically I printed out the pattern onto the interfacing and attached ribbon on the top and bottom with a double-sided tape roller.  I folded the ribbons over on one end to hide the raw edges and the tape seems to hold the ribbon pretty well.  I was going to use the tape to form the loop with the interfacing, but it's not staying.  So any suggestions on what to use?  So far I considered a couple options.  Sewing with right sides together, but then I'd have to iron all the seams open.  Iron on hem tape-but I can never get it right without making a mess of the fabric and again that's a lot of ironing.  Or fabric glue which makes it stiff Sad
Any other ideas of what else I can try?
