Scrappy Sunday: House project

Hey guys,
I meant to post this last week, but I ended up posting a couple pictures of my tag. So...I saved this one for this week, even though it was part of the OWSE January swap. It was part of a swap those ladies have put together called "random acts of art" where we exchange scappy projects. For January, we did a house shaped project. Here is mine.

I cut out the base from cardstock, then covered it with patterned paper (I can't find the pack it came from, but I think it was My Mind's Eye). I cut a little doorway (the paper was great because it had lines on it, so cutting was a snap). I covered the door with wood-patterned thin cardboard from a package of chocolate. What can I say, I love to use random stuff! I cut a chimney from the same patterned paper as the siding and folded it in two to add a little durability. I hand-cut a piece of glittered, self-adhesive paper for the roof and the chimney cover. I used Love, Elsie rub-on letters and tree and a brad from The Paper Studio (for the door knob). The last thing I added was a little chipboard bird circle from ki memories. I covered the back of the whole project with kraft cardstock to reinforce it so it's more sturdy.
