Before going on vacation, I harvested my kitchen garden and had a couple of nice stir-frys for dinner. I also potted up some of the spring onions as a gift to fellow crafter. I took the opportunity to build this tiny greenhouse for the onions. They are easy, fuss-free herbs which look to be thriving in her care.



While making my greenhouse, I captured the step-by-step in a tutorial for Artz de Scrap. They had me over as their January 2011 Inspirational Scrapper. If you love to alter objects, head over and check out them out. This month their challenge is for you to build a little gift-packaging house using my tutorial. And Felicia has a pretty generous prize for the winner.



To build the house :

1.Copy this house template and cut out. You can use the 0.5" paper label as the glue tab.



2.Crease along the fold-lines and glue the tab to form the house



3.Cut a 4"x4" paper for the roof. Add some trim to the edges if you like.



4.Crease along the roof fold-line and prop it on top of your house

If you are interested in the potholder instructions or more details on the challenge, they are posted on my blog.

Oh, and here are the onion propagation tips :


Just put your red onions in a small dish of water for a few days. Once they sprout roots, pot up and water daily. They reach the above stage after 5 days. Then whenever your recipe calls for spring onion garnishing, just snip off a couple of fresh shoots.
