Milk Carton Housing Project

Hi there! Back in early January, a couple who happened to be friends of mine asked me if I can create a party favor for their housewarming party. Look what I came up with. I got my inspiration from here. With the Mini Milk Carton die (another one of my favorites!), I used four different colors of SU cardstock and ran them through the Big Shot to create the "house". The "roof" is made up of two pieces of cardstock ran through the Big Shot (again!) and the Square Lattice embossing folder. I "trimmed" the roof edge with the Scallop Border Punch. The list of SU supplies I used are at the bottom.

Does these not remind you of houses in the suburbs?

Front door:

Side view:

Four different cardstock colors for the houses and 2 different cardstock colors for the roofs.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Forest Friends
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip marker
Paper: SU cardstock in River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Blush Blossom, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Big Shot, Mini Milk Carton Die, Square Lattice embossing folder, mini binder clips (Target), crystal effects used as adhesive.

Thanks for looking!
