My friend recently purchased a new home after many trials and tribulations and I an idea popped into my head while I was driving home from dropping my son off at school!  I thought, "triangle + square = house!"  I went right to work and created a soldered house out of washi paper, glass and a picture of the child of house looking out of a "window."

I added the screw as an impromptu chimney and love the effect of the whole ornament.  

It was a challenge to solder, so it's a little sloppier than usual, but I still love the look of it and can't wait to give it to the family!

I think that this rocks!! What a great present for someone. Is learning to solder very difficult?

Thank you guys, especially my darling pinkangel.  Smiley  I appreciate your comments.

I don't think it's difficult at all.  It requies little capital investment and thus is a good thing to start with if you're interested in this sort of craft.   It does however require patience and some amount of precision (and, of course, care not to burn down your house!)
