A House Is A Home Keepsake Box

Whether you’re building one house or a whole village, these paper mache homes are a lot of fun to make.  Just dress in paper and embellish!

A House Is A Home Keepsake Box by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To begin I chose a cardboard house with a removable lid.  I traced the base onto scrapbook paper and then adhered to an Adhesive Sheets 12×12 inch. Next, I trimmed the paper/adhesive out and carefully attached to the box.

I repeated the same steps for dressing the top/roof as I did for the base.  Before attaching the paper, the pom trim was added using the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in.

To the roof-line, I added drops of Adhesive Dots Mini and then topped with orange glitter.  At the edge of the roof, I placed pieces of Creative Photo Corners White to mimic shingles.

Finally, I embellished the front with die-cuts made 3D with 3D Foam Squares. For the darker cloud, I added an extra layer of the foam squares to give even more dimension.

These sweet houses would be so cute dressed for Spring and lined up on a mantel or bookshelf!
