Title: Haunted Row Houses
Post by: rackycoo on June 25, 2018 08:22:36 AM
I know Halloween is quite a ways off, but it's one of my favorite themes to craft for, so when I got the current Alpha Stamps kit and it contained a row of funny little houses and a matchbox large enough to house them, I knew what had to be done: a decorated matchbox with a set of haunted row houses!


Look how nicely they fit.


Wanna see some closeups? Here they are all folded up:


And the houses, once unfolded. I used lots of collage sheets in this project, plus lace and dresden trim, and maybe a bat or two...


I wish I had a bee costume.


One of my favorite parts is that tiny black cat peering in the window in the house on the left.


Ooo, spooky!


And it all fits in the palm of my hand. Happy early Halloween!

That's a lovely and colorful accordion-style fold-up street of houses!  The laughing moon is my favorite element and I also love those little fuzzy/flocked bats.  I don't think I've ever seen one of these housed (see what I did there? ;)) in a matchbox before either.

So much beauty and detail in such a small package.  Amazing.

And I wish I had THAT bee costume.  I would wear it everywhere, though, not just on Halloween.  To Costco, to school drop off, everywhere... :D

not only is this super cool but it is totally inspiring. i love how you used the black lace like a 'fence' at the bottom of a card. totally going to use that idea in the future. thanks!
