Details of swap:

In this swap, participants will be put into groups of 5. Each member of the group will make and send out one house, decorated front and back (embellish, embellish, embellish!), to each person in your group.  Houses should be sturdy enough to stand when attached to other houses, so please select a sufficiently sturdy base material to work with.  Each house should measure between 3" to 4" wide, and should be no taller than 7".  
  
Although this swap is 'artists choice', please consider the person you are sending each house to.  Send each person in your group a house you would like to receive.  Let's make sure we build a bunch of high quality chunky houses!

If you need inspiration, check out the galleries in previous rounds:
Round 1
Round 2
Round 3
Round 4

Because this is a papercraft swap, dc numbers are not required, but if for some reason your chunky house does not arrive at its destination, you will be required to re-send.

Communication is very important! If you wish to join, please put "Chunky houses" in your signup PM. You are required to send me a PM when you send and receive your houses. Failure to do this will be reflected in your feedback. Also, everyone who signs up for the swap MUST post in this thread!

I am late on a swap right now due to an unexpected trip out of town so once I have that in the mail I am going to sign up.  I love Chunky Houses.

I'm super excited to make a bunch of chunky houses as well Cheesy 

Last evening, I raided my paper stash and my box of misc. bits (hmm, that doesn't sound quite right...but ya know what I mean Roll Eyes).  I can't believe we waited almost a year to do this Shocked

I am waiting for feedback on a swap so I will have a slot open, and then I am signing up for this one!

 ???I do have a question though...I looked thru Michaels craft store and did not see any house cutouts that were as thick as these need to be?  Where do you get them/how do you make them?

Thanks!

Miss Barbara, you can make the house bases with a variety of materials Cheesy  Check out the galleries for rounds 1 thru 4 for ideas on house shapes, etc.  

I like using balsa wood for my bases (it's lightweight, sturdy and easy to cut with a craft knife), but I've received houses made from multiple layers of heavy weight cardstock glued together, bookboards, the back of steno pads, etc.  Get creative!  See what's available in your house and experiment Grin
