An Ickle House Box


Whilst walking around London a couple of weeks back, i noticed an exclusive fashion shop had decorated its window display with ickle house boxes similar to this. The effect was rather elegant. So when I saw a free template from Papertrey, I knew I'd be having a play.


It's so easy to make too. I printed out the template onto some ordinary card. Sprayed with glue and adhered to a sheet of Basic Grey patterned paper. I then used a sharp knife and some scissors to cut around the template shape. I glued it all together & I embossed a piece of dark brown card and added for the roof.


Best of all, I used up nearly a whole 12x12 piece of paper. Only 799 pieces left to go lol.

You are on a roll with these boxes. Where do you keep them all? I only ask because mine are cluttering my room up (only plain squae ones - not fancy ones like yours)
