I'm thinking of tossing in my hat, but then I started thinking about iconic houses to use as inchies.

Then I found an iconic piece of architecture that is too cool for this.  Problem being is that it will have to be several inchies put together to work.  So is a slightly larger than normal inchie house acceptable?  It will be scaled to exist within a town of inchie houses.  Nothing too major, just three inchies wide and two inchies tall.

I'll even share the template after I make it.

intriguing!  now i'm uber curious about the architectural piece you're referring to (care to share?) Smiley  would love to see the tiny house that you're planning to construct!

having said that, for this particular swap, we'll stick with the approximate dimensions of 1" by 1" (excluding the roof bit) Smiley

excellent Cheesy

there you have it...you envelope shouldn't be greater than 3/4" thick...so there's a bit of leeway for making the panels 'dimensional' Grin

...I was thinking the city hall from Back to the Future.  I have an alternate idea though, I just have to figure out how to make it work.

Well, I've made two today.

The first one I glued the template to a book page and then cut and assembled. But of course the text is in all different directions.

The second one - I painted the wrong side, then cut inchie-sized papers to cover the sides, bottom and roof pieces.

They are both kinda wonky - so I need to keep practicing.

That is what I have done, been practicing.  Smiley I don't want to join with something I have never made before. I am going to have a go at decorating it today.

Oh no! This sounds like fun, but I'm not sure I have the time right now... Even for teeny tiny houses!

I think I'm going to assemble one and draw arrows on it pointing up, and then disassemble it and use it as a guide so I don't accidentally decorate some sides upside down....
