I finally got round to finishing my self-made cardboard wee house  Cheesy

The exterior
*I added a matchbox for size reference:





The interior
I made all the furniture myself, with the exception of the brown coffee table in the upstairs living area. I mainly used scraps of fabric and bits of cardboard.

I really like how you were able to fill in so much interior details, despite the size of the house! Great job.

Thanks! Actually the house isn't on a base. The porch fits around the house.

I didn't tat the runner, I found it in my drawer of bits and bobs  Smiley The cardboard I bought at a craft store and is about 1,5mm thick - it's quite a sturdy board.

I can't believe all the work that people put into these wee houses, I'd never ever have the patience to do one.  Yours is simply amazing.  What a piece of art.
