I don't usually 'do' papercraft, in any form. Any cards I make are usually a handmade brooch pinned onto a card, or something the girls have squiggled. But recently I found a tutorial for making doll rooms from cardboard and patterned paper and decided to have a go. Tiny Small has been clamouring for a new house for her Geraniums (aka Sylvanian animals) and I'd rather spend money on the furniture than on yet another plastic abode.
And this is the type of thing I like to spend pennies on - yummy looking sweeties that wouldn't look out of place in a Sylvanian Country Living house.
We measured (twice) and cut (once) and glued and squeaked and duct taped. There were some tense moments when the glue started to soak through the floor paper and made it all bubbly - and reminded me why I don't do paper crafts. But we kept breathing and in the end the fluffy cat mummy moved in with her rabbit and kitty babies and the goat daddy - don't ask.
They do seem rather settled, and their wallpaper is far prettier than the decoration in our bedroom. Wonder if it would scale up?
I moved back into my comfort zone to make some bunting and a little sign for Kristina's allotment cafe - some inexplicably motivated people burned the old one down and she's been put in charge of bunting and decoration for a temporary replacement. She asked for bunting instructions and I thought it was easier to make and send some than to describe the process. Hope it works to lure in cake buyers, Kristina!
