Hộp tiền mừng hình ngôi nhà đáng yêu

Trong các đám cưới, hộp tiền mừng thường là loại hộp hình trái tim hay chữ hỷ đỏ tươi, được nhà hàng, khách sạn cung cấp sẵn cho các đôi uyên ương. Tuy nhiên nếu bạn trang trí đám cưới theo phong cách hiện đại và không sử dụng tông màu đỏ, thì những hộp tiền truyền thống này sẽ trở lên "lạc điệu" trong đám cưới. Vì vậy, nhiều cô dâu chú rể đã đặt riêng hộp tiền mừng cá tính cho tiệc cưới.
Nếu khéo tay, bạn có thể tự vẽ mẫu, tự làm bằng bìa cứng mô hình. Bạn cũng có thể nhờ tới các công ty tổ chức sự kiện chuyên nghiệp thiết kế riêng cho một hộp tiền độc đáo. Tất nhiên khi bạn đã chọn một sản phẩm được thiết kế riêng cho mình, chi phí sẽ cao hơn, nhưng hộp tiền độc đáo sẽ như một vật trang trí đẹp mắt trong tiệc của bạn.
Nhiều công ty tổ chức tiệc cưới còn sẵn lòng cho bạn thuê các mẫu hộp tiền mừng có sẵn với giá hợp lý, phù hợp với những đôi uyên ương muốn tổ chức đám cưới độc đáo nhưng kinh phí không quá rộng rãi. Mời bạn tham khảo một số mẫu hộp tiền mừng hình ngôi nhà do các nhà tổ chức tiệc cưới Việt Nam và thế giới cung cấp:

Tiny House Wedding Favors


http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/paperhouse3-5702.jpg

Just imagine these sturdy symbols of love, family, security and warmth decorating guests’ tables at the next wedding you attend. You might even find a tonne of confetti stuffed inside, a secret thank-you note, or a sweet treat to take home with you.
<dl id="attachment_138343" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step1.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step1.jpg)</dt></dl>
You Will Need:
A design template: red (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/Little-Paper-House-Papercraft-RED-HOUSE.pdf), pink (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/Little-Paper-House-Papercraft-PINK-HOUSE.pdf), blue (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/Little-Paper-House-Papercraft-BLUE-HOUSE.pdf), sky blue (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/Little-Paper-House-Papercraft-BABY-BLUE-HOUSE.pdf).
Scissors
Quick-drying glue (I recommend something like Selleys Kwik Grip)
Ruler
Bone folder or butter knife
Medium-sized paintbrush (for applying the glue)
PDF instructions (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/Little-Paper-House-Papercraft-TUTORIAL.pdf)

Directions:
<dl id="attachment_138357" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/template-photo.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/template-photo.jpg)</dt></dl>
<dl id="attachment_138347" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/one.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/one.jpg)</dt></dl>

1. After you have downloaded and printed the design template of your choice (links above in the supply list), score along the dotted lines with a bone folder (or butter knife) and a ruler applying light pressure. (Scoring like this allows for easy and clean folds and tabs later on).
<dl id="attachment_138359" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/cutting.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/cutting.jpg)</dt></dl>

2. Carefully cut out the house template using the scissors.
<dl id="attachment_138348" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step3.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step3.jpg)</dt></dl>
<dl id="attachment_138349" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step3b.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step3b.jpg)</dt></dl>

3. Start folding along the dotted lines until every tab and fold has been creased.
<dl id="attachment_138358" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/glue-brush.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/glue-brush.jpg)</dt></dl>
<dl id="attachment_138350" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step4.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step4.jpg)</dt></dl>

4. Start by applying glue to the tabs on the base of the house. Attach these tabs to the side walls to begin constructing the house.
<dl id="attachment_138352" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step5.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step5.jpg)</dt></dl>
<dl id="attachment_138353" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step5b.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step5b.jpg)</dt></dl>
<dl id="attachment_138354" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step5c.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/step5c.jpg)</dt></dl>

5. The roof is a little bit more fiddly that the base, but have patience (and that quick-drying glue like I mentioned earlier!) and begin to carefully glue the tabs of the roof together. Rely on your intuition when it comes to this part; in essence, it’s like putting together a box.
<dl id="attachment_138363" class="wp-caption alignleft" style="width: 580px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/confetti-stuffing.jpg (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/files/2012/03/confetti-stuffing.jpg)

How to make a doll house (part 1)


http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TSeNh5RbVpI/AAAAAAAAFX0/tuOc6DH3iJw/s800/DSC00997.JPG (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TSeNh5RbVpI/AAAAAAAAFX0/tuOc6DH3iJw/s1600/DSC00997.JPG)
I finally finished the template for the doll house. I didn't think it would take so long but we have been spending every spare minute with family! Not that I am complaining, we've had lots of fun. I even had a couple of hours of good contractions today. Maybe this little one will arrive a little early. That would be a first for me!

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TR9ZnnD4rDI/AAAAAAAAFXA/KE6aQgGn85Q/s800/dollhouse_template.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TR9ZnnD4rDI/AAAAAAAAFXA/KE6aQgGn85Q/s1600/dollhouse_template.jpg)
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TR9ZnRUf1YI/AAAAAAAAFW4/PIqTYHEZRqQ/s800/dollhouse_plans.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TR9ZnRUf1YI/AAAAAAAAFW4/PIqTYHEZRqQ/s1600/dollhouse_plans.jpg)
A few tips:
1- I bought a 4'x8' piece of 1/2" plywood and was barely unable to get all the pieces cut from that one piece of plywood. Luckily, we happened to have a scrap piece of MDF on hand and didn't need to buy more wood but if you make a dollhouse from this template you will need more than one piece of plywood if you don't have some scraps hanging around.

2- Michael cut all the pieces with a jig saw but a table saw would work well too.

3- The top edge of the side wall (D) needs to be mitered slightly to match the slope of the back wall (A).

4- The back wall (A), side wall (D) and the front wall (E) are all secured to the top of the base piece (B).http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TR9dI83Pt5I/AAAAAAAAFXQ/b6AecQS7xKs/s800/DSC00484.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TR9dI83Pt5I/AAAAAAAAFXQ/b6AecQS7xKs/s1600/DSC00484.jpg)
5- To assemble the house we used 1" finishing nails and a hammer. It is much easier if you have someone to help you with this part. Michael and I laid the base piece top down and pounded nails into the wood (about 1/4" from the back edge, side wall edge and front wall edge) just until the nails were barely visible on the top side of the base piece.

With the pieces on their sides, I lined up the back wall (A) with the base (B) where the barely visible nails were while Michael hammered the nails down. We continued with each wall piece. Measure and mark where the 2nd floor piece (C) will go and again hammer the nails into the wood until barely visible, hold the 2nd floor (C) into place and completely hammer the nails down. The roof pieces (H & I) were last were done in the same manner. Lastly we installed the interior walls (G & F).

6- Our cuts weren't perfect. Once the house was put together there were lots of gaps at the roof line. The house was secure but it didn't look pretty. I used caulk (make sure it is paintable!!) to fill in the gaps knowing it would never be noticed once the house was painted and wallpapered.http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TR9biPCv0FI/AAAAAAAAFXI/oDpMFSz5cjk/s800/DSC00481.JPG (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TR9biPCv0FI/AAAAAAAAFXI/oDpMFSz5cjk/s1600/DSC00481.JPG)
7- We eye-balled the window placement once the house was all put together. The windows are about 9"x6.25" except, of course, for the triangular window which is as wide as the other windows but only a few inches high and the long edge of the window matching the angle of the roof. The windows were cut out with a jig saw.

How to make a doll house (part 2)

I am the second of four girls. When I was growing up my parents made us a Barbie house. It wasn't anything fancy but we loved it (in fact, I am sure I played dolls long after I was too old to do so). Before the doll house my parents also built us a play kitchen. My parents are great DIY'ers and have inspired me many times.

The last six months or so Sutton has really gotten into Barbies so I decided to build her a doll house for Christmas. I have finally gotten started. I couldn't do this project without the help of my husband. He's such a good sport to help me with my (often harebrained) projects!

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQGSsDr_iII/AAAAAAAAFNo/0s4BOoyLX4w/s400/DSC00091.JPG (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQGSsDr_iII/AAAAAAAAFNo/0s4BOoyLX4w/s1600/DSC00091.JPG)
First, I sketched out a the house design. Then we bought a $20 piece of plywood. I measured and drew all the pieces onto the board. I actually measured, drew, erased and repeated about twenty times and once it seemed right Michael cut it all out. My repeated measuring mostly paid off there were only a few pieces that need to be cut smaller. Thankfully none were too small!

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQGSrSddgkI/AAAAAAAAFNg/oZ0pRqPrs3I/s400/DSC00485.JPG (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQGSrSddgkI/AAAAAAAAFNg/oZ0pRqPrs3I/s1600/DSC00485.JPG)
Then we assembled the pieces.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQGSrANdWkI/AAAAAAAAFNY/VLdaDxj6qzo/s400/DSC00484.jpg (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQGSrANdWkI/AAAAAAAAFNY/VLdaDxj6qzo/s1600/DSC00484.jpg)
The house started to take shape. And I got all giddy with excitement. She is going to love it!


Next I primed and painted the exterior, roof and ceilings.
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQKZ8Ylk8WI/AAAAAAAAFN4/tU54O9uCuXA/s400/DSC00512.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQKZ8Ylk8WI/AAAAAAAAFN4/tU54O9uCuXA/s1600/DSC00512.jpg)
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQKZ8HPPv-I/AAAAAAAAFNw/KvnpREtlnxc/s400/DSC00516.JPG (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQKZ8HPPv-I/AAAAAAAAFNw/KvnpREtlnxc/s1600/DSC00516.JPG)

WALLPAPER: I simply mod podged scrapbook paper to the walls.


http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQl8uwGeJiI/AAAAAAAAFPI/0klq5Bj2vdY/s400/DSC00644.JPG (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQl8uwGeJiI/AAAAAAAAFPI/0klq5Bj2vdY/s1600/DSC00644.JPG)The empty spot where the plywood is showing through is where the "kitchen" is going to be.



http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQl8uMOoRCI/AAAAAAAAFOw/AqfJy5gzOIE/s400/DSC00660.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQl8uMOoRCI/AAAAAAAAFOw/AqfJy5gzOIE/s1600/DSC00660.jpg)On top is the yellow bedroom, beneath that is the living room.



http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQl8t0jI_GI/AAAAAAAAFOo/Cb2x-yFbmMw/s400/DSC00659.jpg (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQl8t0jI_GI/AAAAAAAAFOo/Cb2x-yFbmMw/s1600/DSC00659.jpg)The middle upstairs room was the first room I "wallpapered" and I just slapped it on not even trying to match the pieces. It REALLY bothers me so I was much more careful with the other rooms. I am trying to not let it bother me so much that have I re-do it.




FLOORING:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQl8uSUNn5I/AAAAAAAAFO4/MZzDMptZXzc/s400/DSC00656.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TQl8uSUNn5I/AAAAAAAAFO4/MZzDMptZXzc/s1600/DSC00656.jpg)I really love the black and white checkerboard kitchen floor. I cut two 12x12 pages of card stock into 2" squares and mod podged it on.

I didn't like the parquet look so using a box cutter, I cut along the lines to get planks.

I bought it during a 50% off sale at Hobby Lobby.

I got the carpet samples for $1 each at a local carpet store.

And with a whole day to spare! I am actually glad I didn't finish it weeks ago now I won't have to wait long to see Sutton's reaction when she sees the dollhouse for the first time. It's all she has asked for for Christmas.

I have been working on it in my bedroom but Sutton started getting suspicious so Michael (who is a much better liar than I am) came up with a cover story. He told her I was making a bird sanctuary for Aunt Jen. I could tell that she totally bought it because she was so disappointed that what I was working on wasn't for her! Normally, I don't lie to my kids but Christmas presents are an exception!

Anyhow, I am really happy with the finished doll house. Check it out:

I added window boxes.

I bought a piece of 1"x2" wood for $1.68 and cut it down to size with a 50 degree angle on the ends. Then I drilled holes for the flowers. The flowers were $3. Then I used Gorilla Glue to attach the boxes to the house.

I mod podged a picture of windows to the middle bedroom. It really helps to distract from the shoddy wallpapering job. :)

I made the bed from unfinished wood pieces from Hobby Lobby and then painted it white. I made the bedding using scraps of fabric from my stash.

The yellow bedroom got an identical bed and some scrap bedding too.

I also made a few throw pillows for the couches and chair.

I mod podged another window above the sink. Now Barbie has something nice to look at while she washes dishes. P.S.- I wish my backyard looked like that picture!!

I can't wait for Christmas morning. I swear, I haven't been this excited about a Christmas since I was a girl. Having kids makes giving Christmas presents so fun!
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TROo0pskS6I/AAAAAAAAFTQ/s-1_2oqFUK0/s400/DSC01017.JPG (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SgdRW0qOG04/TROo0pskS6I/AAAAAAAAFTQ/s-1_2oqFUK0/s1600/DSC01017.JPG)
After Christmas I will do a Part 5 post with the "blueprint" of the house for any of you that would like to make your own. I will also do a cost break down.

Sutton's preschool teacher gave us some hand-me-down Barbies which I totally appreciate but they are all naked. I had intended to make a bunch of clothes (http://theadventuresofroryandjess.blogspot.com/search/label/Barbie%C2%AE%20clothes) like Jess (http://theadventuresofroryandjess.blogspot.com/) did but I have run out of time. I am too cheap to pay store prices (not to mention how slutty most Barbie clothes are) so we will have lots of in 'the buff' Barbie playing at our house! :)

Little Paper Houses


(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75coeZYXOI/AAAAAAAAHLs/XmLe3poJ31c/s1600/house13-1.jpg)http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75bxNlffXI/AAAAAAAAHLk/dMbxJQ4qAo4/s400/house13-1.jpg
(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75bxNlffXI/AAAAAAAAHLk/dMbxJQ4qAo4/s1600/house13-1.jpg)
You may remember my post for Living Locurto, the Mother’s Day message box project (http://www.livinglocurto.com/2009/04/message-gift-box-tutorial/) below.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75bUXB0jCI/AAAAAAAAHLc/XQS7dTzwDZ4/s400/mothersdaybox.jpg (http://www.livinglocurto.com/2009/04/message-gift-box-tutorial/)

I’ve had that on my mind as Mother’s day approaches and wanted to engineer another type of box to share, but in a different style. Little paper houses. Engineering cardstock takes me back to my good ol’days as a package designer and I wish I had more time to create them for crafting.
As I worked on these, I must have had 5o completely different ideas come to mind of how to use these houses for various things, such as gifts, decorations, favors, etc. But since I don’t have the benefit of all that time on my hands, I’ll share 3 and give ideas for many more.
To create your own custom paper house, use the templates below. You can digitally add images or patterns, or add them once you’ve printed out your template. Card stock works best for these houses. The only difference between template one and two are the top roof-lines. No. 2 is scalloped.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r6fEaQVI/AAAAAAAAHHc/XUZTzRsd56E/s400/JSIMPaperHouse1.jpg (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r6fEaQVI/AAAAAAAAHHc/XUZTzRsd56E/s1600/JSIMPaperHouse1.jpg)http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r6pug6rI/AAAAAAAAHHk/JeYB9rlMq3s/s400/JSIMPaperHouse2.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r6pug6rI/AAAAAAAAHHk/JeYB9rlMq3s/s1600/JSIMPaperHouse2.jpg)
I created templates also for the individual panels, you can print to card stock, cut out the panel windows and place over designs, patterns, or photographs to trace each panel shape for attaching to pre-printed houses.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70sMFrQTWI/AAAAAAAAHIE/904CG4JyB3k/s400/JSIM-HousePanelTemplate.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70sMFrQTWI/AAAAAAAAHIE/904CG4JyB3k/s1600/JSIM-HousePanelTemplate.jpg)

To make little houses with the designs I’ve provided, click on image and save to your computer. Place into your software and scale the image down to fit a letter-size paper, then print to white cardstock.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r7dCDuOI/AAAAAAAAHHs/BA_c--mxpUI/s400/JSIMHouseofStamps.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r7dCDuOI/AAAAAAAAHHs/BA_c--mxpUI/s1600/JSIMHouseofStamps.jpg)

I’ve created this tutorial using the House of Stamps design made from scanned vintage postage stamps sent to me by a very generous JSIM reader, Tracey Ireland. This template has an additional reinforcement piece that you can trim out and glue to the front and then cut the center section out of it and through the house layer.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZhDVlhbI/AAAAAAAAHJ8/WGNsbwg4F5Q/s400/hhouse10.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZhDVlhbI/AAAAAAAAHJ8/WGNsbwg4F5Q/s1600/hhouse10.jpg)http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Zhni6tFI/AAAAAAAAHKE/e3XWGuTDMyo/s400/house9.jpg (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Zhni6tFI/AAAAAAAAHKE/e3XWGuTDMyo/s1600/house9.jpg)

Once printed, carefully cut out the template with scissors or a craft blade along the cut lines. You can refer to the solid lines in the templates above for trim lines. Note that the roof-line cuts down into the house a bit.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Zh8wt6sI/AAAAAAAAHKM/O0-i8QHqYAE/s400/house11.jpg (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Zh8wt6sI/AAAAAAAAHKM/O0-i8QHqYAE/s1600/house11.jpg)

Fold along all perforation lines. Scoring your perforation lines will make for more accurate and clean folds, although I didn’t score mine for this tutorial and they turned out just fine. I used my fingernail to crease each fold well.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Zik4VyPI/AAAAAAAAHKU/4b3lzCk5M7E/s400/house8.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Zik4VyPI/AAAAAAAAHKU/4b3lzCk5M7E/s1600/house8.jpg)

Use an adhesive to adhere the side tab to the side of the house.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZrVMZkjI/AAAAAAAAHKc/RU5NHNxl-gQ/s400/house6.jpg (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZrVMZkjI/AAAAAAAAHKc/RU5NHNxl-gQ/s1600/house6.jpg)

I used American Crafts this to thatsolid glue runner (http://americancrafts.typepad.com/studio/2010/01/cha-reveal-adhesives.html), which applies the perfect width of adhesive to the sections of these houses!

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70sXPeJ4uI/AAAAAAAAHI8/uJEpb6rwzZo/s1600/house7.jpg)Glue the bottom roof sections together.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70sWSw3bLI/AAAAAAAAHIs/tfY7WqN2rU8/s400/house5.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70sWSw3bLI/AAAAAAAAHIs/tfY7WqN2rU8/s1600/house5.jpg)

The houses can remain flat for mailing in a greeting card!
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZsAzWf9I/AAAAAAAAHKs/iROeT-My-4g/s400/house7.jpg (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZsAzWf9I/AAAAAAAAHKs/iROeT-My-4g/s1600/house7.jpg)

Tuck a roll of stamps up through the bottom and thread out through the hole.
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Zsd2XXdI/AAAAAAAAHK0/w0fnLKXmI5o/s400/house4.jpg (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Zsd2XXdI/AAAAAAAAHK0/w0fnLKXmI5o/s1600/house4.jpg)

Close the bottom and you have an actual House of Stamps!
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZgjTARqI/AAAAAAAAHJ0/yYP5SFxm_pY/s400/house3.jpg (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZgjTARqI/AAAAAAAAHJ0/yYP5SFxm_pY/s1600/house3.jpg)

The Chocolate Covered Cherries house was just a way to use a gorgeous graphic from a vintage candy box.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r71cB7RI/AAAAAAAAHH8/sxbHc_HYbcI/s400/JSIMHouseofCherries.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r71cB7RI/AAAAAAAAHH8/sxbHc_HYbcI/s1600/JSIMHouseofCherries.jpg)

Label the front and tuck little notes or actual wrapped chocolate covered cherries inside as a gift!

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZtH_liKI/AAAAAAAAHK8/G9zE_o8F1ro/s400/house1.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75ZtH_liKI/AAAAAAAAHK8/G9zE_o8F1ro/s1600/house1.jpg)

The roof top can be folded up and together or one over the other, however you want.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Z3RpWy2I/AAAAAAAAHLE/U76tM2xb4BM/s400/house12.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Z3RpWy2I/AAAAAAAAHLE/U76tM2xb4BM/s1600/house12.jpg)

I designed some sweet little patterns for the Home Sweet Home paper house.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r7gnwB1I/AAAAAAAAHH0/MhGduTZEK2I/s400/JSIMSweetHome.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S70r7gnwB1I/AAAAAAAAHH0/MhGduTZEK2I/s1600/JSIMSweetHome.jpg)

I thought this would be a nice way to present a home-improvement gift card as a house warming gift to friends. A card will fit perfectly within the box. You can punch a hole in the top, add a grommet if you have one and fill with sweets to hang from your neighbor’s door on May Day. Then ring the bell and run!


http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Z32bz01I/AAAAAAAAHLM/ZwjyC26Yj6Q/s400/house2.jpg (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/S75Z32bz01I/AAAAAAAAHLM/ZwjyC26Yj6Q/s1600/house2.jpg)

Some other ideas for making and decorating little paper houses are:


Photo houses- cover with pictures of your family
Cut out a vintage image, scrapbook paper or the cover of a magazine.
Line up different houses on a shelf for some great conversations pieces.
Add/cut out windows and a door, top off with a chimney.
With windows and doors: write a note on the backside of the cut-out but before folding for a surprise message for whoever opens the door or peeks into a window.
Fill with scripture, love notes, words of encouragement and so on. Do not glue the top, use a colorful bulldog clip to keep it closed but easy to open to retrieve the notes.
Create shower, wedding or other party favors. Fill with most anything lightweight! If using heavier contents, be sure to tape or seal the bottom closed.
Trim your house with ribbon, ric-rac, tiny dingleballs, lace, or paper doily edging.
Glitter your paper house for any occasion or make Faux Putz Christmas houses sprinkled with sparkly mica flakes.
Instead of a roll of stamps, have a roll of well wishes coming from inside the house. Before stuffing inside, perforate between each note with your sewing machine. You can create a roll from strips of cut paper taped together.
Embellish with scrapbook stickers and other goodies.
Cut a round hole in the front of the house and tuck in some dry moss to make a bird house.
Use as a gift card holder and add tiny bunting along the front of the house with a message such as Welcome Home or Happy Birthday.

I could go on, but I should probably sleep at some point. I would love to hear your ideas on how you could use the little paper house templates!

http://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/ImAGiant-sq150.jpg (http://makingitlovely.com/2011/09/21/the-im-a-giant-challenge/)Well, I think I’m the only one that actually has a dollhouse to show you today from Emily’s original group of participants. (http://makingitlovely.com/2011/09/21/the-im-a-giant-challenge/) I’m amazed though by the creativity and hard work that was put into dollhouses by the people following along with this whole crazy project! (Thank you, everybody.) Here are some of the people I’ve noticed, but please leave a link in the comments if I missed you.

I’ve been working on a Walton dollhouse, courtesy of Melissa and Doug. (http://www.melissaanddoug.com/hardwood-dollhouses?n=0&va=t) It’s been fun to follow along with this challenge, but I’ve really been making it for Eleanor. She loves it already, even though she’s a little young for it at just two years old. I hope she’ll enjoy it for years to come. I’ve tried to source things below but unless otherwise noted, you can assume everything came from eBay. Here’s a closer look inside…
The Kitchen and Dining Roomhttp://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6473a640.jpg
I bought a kitchen set and only intended to use the stove and fridge from it, but I ran out of time and just used the sink that came with it as well. I have a farmhouse sink that’s really cute, but it needs to be assembled. I’d also like to eventually make some cabinets and counters, sew a little skirt for the sink, and put up a backsplash. The dining wall also needs some large art, and a table! I rested a gift box lid on those little metal chairs. The light is a knob that I’ve had for years from Anthropologie, and the table settings and food all belonged to Brandon’s mom and grandmother. The paint color is Dill Pickle by Benjamin Moore.

The Living Roomhttp://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6479a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518122981/in/photostream/lightbox/)

The tiny Jonathan Adler vases are from the Adler Barbie couch set we already owned for <strike>me</strike> Eleanor. The credenza is awesome and handmade, from OneFortyThree. (http://onefortythree.com/home/?p=1984) It was my big furniture splurge in the dollhouse. The white wire chair is an ornament from CB2, (http://www.cb2.com/christmas/accessories/igloo-chair-ornament/f7058) and I already owned the mini Barcelona chair. (http://makingitlovely.com/2009/09/24/have-a-seat-or-two-or-three/) The tea cart was a gift from Cassandra (http://cocokelley.blogspot.com/) (thanks!). The gold folding screen and little accessories belonged to Brandon’s mom and grandmother.

The wallpaper (http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/item/Yuzen-Gold-Houses-on-Black-Fine-Paper/3105_001/12435850.html) is one of my favorite things in the house. Tiny houses! I also had some amazing wooden flooring to go in the room, but it’s going to be labor intensive, so I left it white with a sheet of woven scrapbook paper (http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/item/Natural-Woven-12x12-Paper/3108.001/496837.html) as a rug.
The Officehttp://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6459a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518120657/in/photostream/lightbox/)
This room was going to be the nursery, but then I switched things around at the last minute. I already had the chair and chaise, but there’s no desk (oops). The accessories were in with the other little things from Brandon’s mom and grandmother. The rug and bookshelf were eBay finds. And eventually I’ll finish the stairs throughout the house. The paint is Ribbon Pink by Benjamin Moore.
http://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6460a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518120863/in/photostream/lightbox/)
The Bathroomhttp://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6455a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518120323/in/photostream/lightbox/)
http://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6458a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518120375/in/photostream/lightbox/)
I showed you a lot of the bathroom before. (http://makingitlovely.com/2011/10/13/the-mini-bathroom-fixtures-are-here/) The tile, dresser, and mirror were from eBay, and the slippers and ‘His and Her’ towels were from Brandon’s mom.
http://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6451a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518120105/in/photostream/lightbox/)
The BedroomI intended to sew bedding, spray paint the bed, and make some art for the room, but I ran out of time before the deadline. I made the rug out of leftover furry fabric from Eleanor’s Halloween costume. (http://makingitlovely.com/2011/10/31/happy-halloween-from-the-gruffalos-child-and-the-big-bad-mouse/) Again, I already had the chair, (http://makingitlovely.com/2009/09/24/have-a-seat-or-two-or-three/) but added a kitty to sleep in it. I painted the dresser pink and hung a toy camera from the knobs.
http://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6464a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518121415/in/photostream/lightbox/)
http://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6461a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518121141/in/photostream/lightbox/)
The Kids’ BedroomThis was going to be an unfinished attic, and the kids’ bedroom was going to be what is now the nursery, but then I realized that the two beds wouldn’t fit in the other space because of the stair opening. I made the mattresses out of two pieces of foam core, sandwiched together with fabric on top. I intended to make bedding, crafty pendant banners, cute artwork, and so on and so on. This room is the least finished of all. There’s a wee dollhouse though! And an Eames rocker that I had. The paint is Benjamin Moore’s Pink Peony.
http://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6491a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518124719/in/photostream/lightbox/)
http://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6488a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518124443/in/photostream/lightbox/)
The Nurseryhttp://makingitlovely.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/IMG_6487a640.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinklovesbrown/6518124135/in/photostream/lightbox/)
The bird pattern is wrapping paper, (http://www.snowandgraham.com/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=75&parentCat=&catId=23) and Eleanor chose the crib fabric. I had that white chair already, and the dresser was an eBay find. The rug is the same as in the kids’ bedroom and the living room: woven scrapbook paper. (http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/item/Natural-Woven-12x12-Paper/3108.001/496837.html)
The (Almost) Finished DollhouseI will eventually finish the things I wasn’t able to get to, without the pressure of a deadline. Eleanor (and August, if he’s interested) is still young, so there’s plenty of time. I didn’t do the stairs, which I had put so much thought into, (http://makingitlovely.com/2011/10/04/teeny-tiny-staircase-inspiration/) and I didn’t even touch the exterior! I’m really happy with the end result (so far) though, and Eleanor is over the moon about it.

Trong căn nhà có 23 phòng, 10 giường ngủ, các đồ đạc được làm tinh xảo, tỷ lệ y như các món đồ thật. Dưới đây là hình ảnh của công trình này, ảnh trên Telegraph.

Ngôi nhà búp bê 23 phòng đã được một nhà sưu tập trả giá cao hơn một ngôi nhà thực ở Anh.







http://a9.vietbao.vn/images/vn955/the-gioi/55235793-1244724033-Cannha_bupbe_02.jpg







Ông Peter Riches, 64 tuổi, đã ly hôn, dự định sẽ đi vòng quanh thế giới sau khi nhận được lời đề nghị mua nhà búp bê do ông làm với mức tiền khoảng 80.000 USD từ một người Canada.







http://a9.vietbao.vn/images/vn955/the-gioi/55235793-1244724033-Cannha_bupbe_03.jpg







Phải mất 15 năm ông Peter mới hoàn thiện xong ngôi nhà 10 giường ngủ với khu ở cho người giúp việc, phòng chơi game với bàn bi-a, phòng nhạc có cả piano và thư viện với 1.000 cuốn sách.







http://a9.vietbao.vn/images/vn955/the-gioi/55235793-1244724033-Cannha_bupbe_04.jpg







Những cuốn sách siêu nhỏ gồm các trang sách cắt từ báo.







http://a9.vietbao.vn/images/vn955/the-gioi/55235793-1244724033-Cannha_bupbe_05.jpg







Mỗi chi tiết trong nhà đều được làm tỉ mỉ tại căn nhà của ông Peter ở Hove, Sussex.







http://a9.vietbao.vn/images/vn955/the-gioi/55235793-1244724033-Cannha_bupbe_06.jpg

Kể từ năm 1994, ngày nào ông Peter cũng dành 8 tiếng để chăm lo cho căn nhà nhỏ.







http://a9.vietbao.vn/images/vn955/the-gioi/55235793-1244724033-Cannha_bupbe_07.jpg







Ông Peter từng làm tại một hãng xây dựng và dành thời gian rỗi để làm nhà cho búp bê.







http://a9.vietbao.vn/images/vn955/the-gioi/55235793-1244724237-Cannha_bupbe_08.jpg

Ông Peter nghỉ hưu cách đây 4 năm và để lại hãng xây dựng cho các con trai quản lý. Từ đó, ông dành phần lớn thời gian để hoàn thiện căn nhà búp bê.

Lý do ông muốn bán căn nhà dễ thương này vì muốn tiến hành dự án mới trong khi nơi ông ở đã hết chỗ đặt đồ.

ANOTHER ROOMBOX (http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com/2012/02/another-roombox.html)

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-gVmtWl-UhT0/TzfdV_uiPyI/AAAAAAAAC2Y/6VU_Ag59I3E/s640/IMG_3818.JPG (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-gVmtWl-UhT0/TzfdV_uiPyI/AAAAAAAAC2Y/6VU_Ag59I3E/s1600/IMG_3818.JPG)


This is a roombox I made a while ago. "Princess of Quite A Lot". I like Mary Engelbreit designs so I decided to create a roombox with her flavor. The basic design came from a Mary E. post it note.


http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-bsCcPRUfpyg/TzfdzTGEDxI/AAAAAAAAC2g/3ysaHhrzvyo/s640/IMG_3815.JPG (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-bsCcPRUfpyg/TzfdzTGEDxI/AAAAAAAAC2g/3ysaHhrzvyo/s1600/IMG_3815.JPG)


The little shelf in the foyer is from Mott's book of furniture patterns. The rocking chair is made from beech wood, this looks a little like oak wood in miniature. The pattern for that came from Mott's pattern book, also. The stove is Chrysnbon, of course. I've always wanted a painted floor in my house so I painted this floor with a design I found on Mary E. post it notes. The lamp shades on the sconces, (they are really candle holder sconces) are the screw caps from tubes of frosting. I bought frosting just the other day and found they had changed the packaging! No more lamp shades : ( I always liked the frosting caps better than the toothpaste caps. The edge had a wider pleat. I had a terrible time needle pointing the picture, glad I did it, but I won't be doing any more tiny, tiny needle pointing! My husband bought the plates for me and there was no signature on them. The little grey rabbit in the rocking chair is from a pattern from the book "Furnish a Doll's House" by Michal Morse. The sewing stand is a copy of my friend's full size sewing stand. I am going to make a pattern for this and make it in mat board for the blog later this year. Remind me if you don't see it !!


http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-myc5tPe6l4U/TzfgDLzVdjI/AAAAAAAAC2w/WK51fotHzIM/s640/IMG_3813.JPG (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-myc5tPe6l4U/TzfgDLzVdjI/AAAAAAAAC2w/WK51fotHzIM/s1600/IMG_3813.JPG)


I like making roomboxes with nooks so I made this one to house a table and chair set. I found the chairs in an advertisement in Miniature Collector. An artisan was having a class at the Chicago show and she had a picture of the chairs she was making. I don't sell these chairs but I did make a pair for myself. I wanted the window to be different so I made up a design with 3 small panes at the top and 2 large panes at the bottom.


http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-x_bd7DzRTSA/TzfhLfwinxI/AAAAAAAAC24/nSIwY8F9F3g/s640/IMG_3816.JPG (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-x_bd7DzRTSA/TzfhLfwinxI/AAAAAAAAC24/nSIwY8F9F3g/s1600/IMG_3816.JPG)


I bought fabric with Mary E. sayings and designs and cut it up. I cut out the "Princess of Quite A Lot" and made a rug. I had to paint in some of the design since another saying overlapped it. I glued it onto card stock and made fringe for the edge. By the time the project was over that piece of fabric looked like Swiss cheese!
The table cloth started out as a white square. I cut and glued the border on using bits and pieces. The checker board is a scrap booking border. I used "Wonder Under" to make some parts of the fabric "iron on". The flowers on the bottom table cloth was made this way. I know it was crazy to cut all of those flowers out singly but I did it anyway and ironed them on the way I wanted it to look.
The small table if from a full size furniture pattern book. Even the doilies came from the Mary E. fabric.

I wanted to show you the wind chime. I saw this in the "Home Companion", that's Mary Engelbreit's magazine. I made the teapot, cup and saucer from Fimo and used Chrysnbon spoons. So cute.


http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-0EbocPkUZW0/TzflFA8m-BI/AAAAAAAAC3I/egXW4O2rbg0/s400/IMG_3818.JPG (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-0EbocPkUZW0/TzflFA8m-BI/AAAAAAAAC3I/egXW4O2rbg0/s1600/IMG_3818.JPG)

Some of you may know I have a pet rabbit that runs loose in my breeze way were I work. His name is Ginger. Before I had him, though, I had another. My kids saved him from dogs. The former owners got tired of him and dumped him out here in the country. He was white and definitely a tame rabbit, they thought, "A rabbit is a rabbit." Well, the dogs were chasing him, we don't have dogs so they weren't our dogs. My kids heard the racket and went to find out what was going on and they brought this big white rabbit in the house. I took to him quickly and he was "Bunny". He passed away and I remembered him by putting the rabbits in my roombox. He looked a little like the one on the floor by the checkered chair, not white/white, but not grey either.

I hoped you liked the tour. I am going to begin work on the February blog, finishing the kitchen cabinets.

This is my quilt cottage. I am working on some furniture but I didn't want you to think I had forgotten about you, so I thought I would give you some pictures to look at.

I didn't make the pottery and I didn't make the sewing machine, but I did make the cabinet for it. The plants and flowers were kits from Hanky Panky. I didn't make the cats, Mini Me is on the front porch and there is another cat sleeping on the quilt.
Yes, I did make the blue secretary's chair, used mine to copy from, mine is orange, though. I made all of the other furniture and most of the accessories.

If you have any questions about this room box, please ask and I will try to answer your questions.

Hello Everybody!
I thought I would put up another room box I made. For this one I copied a picture right out of the Ethan Allen Furniture catalog.
I built the box and used drywall compound for the plaster finish. Painted a base color and then worked in dots of color mixed with a glaze to keep it from drying out too quickly. My husband cut maple flooring for me. I built the windows so I would have deep sills.
I bought tin from Micro Mark to put into the pie safe. The little wooden basket on the floor is a copy of one I have in my room. My daughter painted the Chrysnbon rooster for me. I love it. I painted the tea set and the pot on the coffee table is made from paper! I copied the rug from the catalog and cross-stitched it freehand.
I found that was easier for me than to try and draw the design. The pot in the window with tulips is also made from paper. I painted the plates to match what was in the picture from the catalog. The basket on the bench is woven paper. I was taking a basket making class so I tried out what I learned in miniature. I made the garden clogs from green Fimo.
The fabric on the couch and chair have been miniaturized on the computer. I tried to find fabric that would kind of match the picture, then miniaturized it.
On the right wall is a hanging planter with ivy in it. My youngest daughter had given me a full size wall planter for Mother's Day. I loved it, so I made a miniature one to hang in this room box.
I cut the "paintings" out from a fine arts catalog.
I didn't make the striped bowl on the pie safe but I did try my hand at the apples.
I like to crochet and I made the little afghan for the arm of the couch and the doily on the coffee table.
The little candle holder is a modge-podge of bits and pieces. It starts with a Chrysnbon saucer, then I cut a cheap metal candle holder top off from the rest of it and then the top is a clear glass vase. The books on the table are photo copies of books about miniatures.
I made this room box when I didn't have alot of resources available and I had to depend on myself to figure out how to go about making something.
The only things I didn't make are: the tea set, the plates on the wall are Chrysnbon, the blue glass bottle in the left window, the clay flower pot in the left window, the bowl on the pie safe, the plate holding the candy on the end table and the Chrysnbon rooster.

This is an unpainted pine catalog corner cabinet my daughter left here at home when she moved to Chicago. It was free to her, now free to me! This all started in "Miniature Collector", they had an article about a miniatures store, the owner's mother had decorated a beautiful antique Queen Anne corner cabinet with a dollhouse inside. I have always wanted a dollhouse in a piece of furniture, a baby house. Suddenly I remembered the corner cabinet Katie left and now I have my baby house! Hope you enjoy the pictures, I have had fun figuring out how to make everything.
I didn't make the pottery, that's a weakness of mine, love Jane Graber. Didn't make the red step stool, that's Aztec, I think.
Made the doors and trim around the front hall, it's all poster board! Used my Dremel and it's workstand to make the turnings on the kitchen cabinets and the center island. The hall floor is from a rubber stamp from Michael's, big square block with different sides to stamp marble, how cool. The furniture is all from Ethan Allen, with a few changes I've thrown in.

If you have any questions on how I did anything, just ask and I will gladly try to explain it here in the blog.

The rug on the kitchen floor is a copy of one from the Internet printed on the ceiling paper from a previous blog entry. The counter tops in the kitchen are painted to look like red granite and the baker's rack has painted black granite. No, the kitchen sink in not a china one, I made that from wood and painted it, several times. The faucet is from aluminum tubing and wood, I turned the handles with my trusty Dremel and workstand. I didn't like the door hardware available so I made mine from wire, it's twisted, painted black and I used a diamond paper punch to make the escutcheons. The banjo clock on the wall is from a picture I found on the Internet. I laminated very thin slices of wood to create the curved outer box of the clock. I did make the teapot on the table, my experiment with fimo.
I have more to do to the back porch. I made the door and screen door. I made the windows, the ones I can afford seem so chunky. I want 4 murals to represent the seasons. I have a goose, and I am going to dress her!

The fabric on the couch and chairs by the bay window have been reduced on the printer. I do that alot, the color isn't always the same, but it works most of the time. I reduced the fabric for the chairs in the kitchen, too. I bought a coordinated set of fabric from Keepsake Quilting for the living room. I used Jacqueline Kerr Deiber's instructions to make a piece of caning for the back of the chair in front of the desk. I didn't drill holes in the chair, though. I laminated an oval and sandwiched the caning between it and the chair back.

Going to do a bedroom and a yellow and blue "ducky" bathroom on the top shelf, that is if I ever get back to it.

I especially love that this cabinet is in my workroom, with me, and that's where I am basically all of the time! This is my little dream house.

Kris

P.S. Yes, that's the lady leg lamp from "A Christmas Story" I had to make one for myself. Don't where I'm going to put it, though.

P.S.S. I don't know if you know this, I just learned it, but if you click on a picture you can make it bigger, full screen.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 Carl's Room (http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com/2010/02/carls-room.html)
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_L3yDl2EFfyw/S3q0tjbjT4I/AAAAAAAAAJY/a1xebL4ii84/s400/Carl%27s+Room+001.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_L3yDl2EFfyw/S3q0tjbjT4I/AAAAAAAAAJY/a1xebL4ii84/s1600-h/Carl%27s+Room+001.jpg)I call this Carl's Room because the little cat inside looks like Carl my daughter's Siamese. I have 3 cats living with me, all grandcats!
I used d.Anne Ruff's chair and ottoman kit. This kit is very good. If you ever get a chance to buy one, try it, you'll like it!
I started with the border at the top. I found this in the scrapbooking isle at Michael's. Ahh, the scrapbooking isle, so many things we can use. Although, I am a little disappointed that they have gone to large punches. There for a while I was getting some wonderful punches for flowers. I am still hoping and looking for an ivy punch. I know Hanky Panky Crafts has the handmade punches for ivy but they are too expensive for me just wanting to make ivy once in a while. So, I am still looking!
Anyway, I loved the border, bought it, and kept it for a long time before I knew how to use it. The rest of the furniture I copied from catalogs. I do that a lot! The fish pictures on the wall are from the catalog. The lamp shade was tricky, gluing all of the pieces of card stock together. I used Elmer's, still the best for paper to paper.

Watering Can Potting Shed (http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com/2010/02/watering-can-potting-shed.html)

It's a happy little place I wish I could go to this winter!
I've made petunias, thank you Hanky Panky Crafts. I have finally understood the instructions and they turned out beautifully. I made my own columbines and passion flowers. I used a Fiskars punch for the daisies. This was fun to do, I made practically everything in here. Let's see I didn't make the chair, that's Chrysnbon, the rake is Sir Thomas Thumb, and the face on the wall is from Hobby Builders. My friend, Mary made the "spill" in front of the chair. Think spring! Kris

Tuesday, December 29, 2009 First Apartment (http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com/2009/12/first-apartment.html)
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_L3yDl2EFfyw/SzpbupNvIxI/AAAAAAAAAGg/lE3WIkdoEqA/s400/First+Apartment+001.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_L3yDl2EFfyw/SzpbupNvIxI/AAAAAAAAAGg/lE3WIkdoEqA/s1600-h/First+Apartment+001.jpg)
This room box represents what I thought would be a great first apartment back in the '70's. What a dreamer!
I'm going to start on the left side and go around the room explaining what I did.
To start with in the left corner hanging from the upper cabinet, you can't see it here, but I will post more pictures, is a 90 degree wall bracket. It imitates wrought iron filigree. I made it with black quilling paper. You can also cut paper 1/8" wide and paint it black. I used it for a plant hanger, the plant is in a starter bowl made from a clear pony bead. I made the plant from Fimo and the macrame hanger is buttonhole thread. In the '70's plants were very popular. The plants I made are from Fimo or florist's tape.
The sink, stove and refrigerator are made just like the Vintage Kitchen's, I just made them in apartment size. The bowls on top of the cabinet and holding the popcorn are painted to look like Pyrex Ware. I made them from quilling paper also.
The bathroom is just a peek, but the shelf inside is nice. I copied one from an old S&H Green Stamps catalog. It's made from quilling paper, too.
Remember the stereos that folded up? This is all thin basswood and Fimo. Now, the table and chairs were something I always wanted to have, I've had to settle for them in miniature! These I will explain how to do later. They are made from the little plastic champagne glasses, taller plastic wine glasses and basswood. And lots of gesso!
The brick wall is just a brick red plastic brick sheet that's been painted flat white and sanded a bit in spots.
The book shelf has sliding doors made from brown cross stitching paper. This makes good pegboard, I remember furniture having pegboard sliding doors. The T.V. is a copy of what I had when I first got married. It's a bit tedious, but I think it's worth trying.
The rug is punch needle using embroidery floss with the loops cut off. The pictures are from catalogs and picture frame from Hobby Builders used to make the frames. The shelf on the wall has false drawers. The table is copied from and old decorating book. The lamp base I turned on a lathe and them used gesso to give it the stippled texture. We can talk about improvising a lathe. And everybody had a boomerang ash tray your aunt made at ceramics!
I crocheted the afgan from embroidery floss and made the chair, couch and ottoman from pictures from old decorating books.
If you have any preferences of where to start please let me know, I would be happy to oblige.
TTYL Kris

Friday, July 17, 2009 1 inch minis, Kitchen Room Box (http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com/2009/07/1-inch-minis-kitchen-room-box.html)
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_L3yDl2EFfyw/SmCRTUILCjI/AAAAAAAAAA4/285TcGgEY0Q/s320/Kitchen+Room+Box+001.jpg (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_L3yDl2EFfyw/SmCRTUILCjI/AAAAAAAAAA4/285TcGgEY0Q/s1600-h/Kitchen+Room+Box+001.jpg)This is my kitchen room box. Before making this box I did a little research by buying a few old "Better Homes and Gardens" from a flea market, circa 1940. Let's take a tour. I made the box with a false back to allow for a window scene and pantry. The floor is painted to look like linoleum, the cabinet doors and drawers do not work, there's a teapot, round tin, toaster, a canner with jars of beans inside, a percolator, flyswatter, calendar, wall shelf, stove, canister set, sink, cookie jar, lots of stuff in the pantry, refrigerator, radio, table and chairs, cutting board and knife and the basket of tomatoes and beans.
I plan to share with you how I made most of the minis in the scene on this blog. If you have any questions about the "how to's" please contact me at my e-mail address.
I plan on expanding and selling KITS in the future, flowers, upholstered furniture and whatever else I think that you would like. Keep me informed, I'll do my best. Kris

Gallier House New Orleans
More research for my Victorian House - My wife and I were able to visit the Gallier House in New Orleans historic French Quarter. The house was designed by famous New Orleans architect James Gallier in the 1850's. The house has been loving restored and furnished with period pieces.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-zSNyqjif6DY/TvELcrEewkI/AAAAAAAABGQ/uBXY4W2GGsg/s320/gallier+double+parlor.jpg (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-zSNyqjif6DY/TvELcrEewkI/AAAAAAAABGQ/uBXY4W2GGsg/s1600/gallier+double+parlor.jpg)


Here is a photo of the double parlor

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-d8PBBOhu5Rw/TvEH9qbj9sI/AAAAAAAABE4/i1qeB_vrB7M/s320/gallier+floor+plan.gif (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-d8PBBOhu5Rw/TvEH9qbj9sI/AAAAAAAABE4/i1qeB_vrB7M/s1600/gallier+floor+plan.gif)
The house has a long narrow floor plan and a small courtyard at the back of the property. The property backs up to another house and also has one on each side. The skinny portion of the back of the house could be closed off from the front part of the house. The back areas included the kitchen and dining areas on the first floor, and the bathroom and slaves quarters on the second floor. The courtyard has a small garden and had a cistern to collect the waste, as it was designed before the city of New Orleans had a public sewer system. The house is one of first known in the area to have indoor toilets.

The entry hall is pretty unassuming, but still ornate with the woodwork, woodwork and wallpaper

Here is a photo of the front of the house which is directly adjacent to the street. The balcony and iron work on the second floor cantilever over the public sidewalk.

Here is a photo of the front parlor with dust covers which were used while the family was away. Notice the very heavy plaster crown molding.

Here is a photo of the dining room table. The table was set for a multi-course meal

Here is a shot of the kitchen sink with a view out to the courtyard. Notice the copper hot water heater to the left.

The stove was wood burning and built into the wall in the kitchen. I was surprised at how small the kitchen actually was.

The house was state of the art at the time and featured this copper water heater in the kitchen

The pantry, just off the kitchen was stocked with period necessities

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Mta8JWWecm8/TvEJmQL09fI/AAAAAAAABFo/yAvH8mNDZ6g/s1600/rooms_hg_17-e1319047365562.jpg (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Mta8JWWecm8/TvEJmQL09fI/AAAAAAAABFo/yAvH8mNDZ6g/s1600/rooms_hg_17-e1319047365562.jpg)
Upstairs, the large hall serves at a library. The tour guide told us that Gallier didn't like the wasted space. Another very neat feature of this room/hall, was a large operable skylight with could be opened to help let all the hot summer air escape and keep the house cooler in the summer months.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qOiIOZ3s59k/TvETg85A1zI/AAAAAAAABHA/ZoutlbhlWWQ/s320/gallier-int.jpg (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qOiIOZ3s59k/TvETg85A1zI/AAAAAAAABHA/ZoutlbhlWWQ/s1600/gallier-int.jpg)
The master bedroom was very ornate, furniture, carpet, and even the wallpaper. The tour guide mentioned something about how valuable all of the dark carved wood furniture was, but I missed that part. It was produced by a local craftsman.

The exterior of the house is drastically different facing the private rear courtyard. The facade is wood and plaster, versus the large cut stone and wrought iron on the front of the house.

Here is photo of one of the slaves quarters. They were much simpler than the rest of the house, no woodwork or wallpaper.
