With Heavy card stock cut a 12x12 sheet in half and score on long side at 3, 6, and 9.
On the first and 3rd section measure down 1.5" and tic mark. Then on top measure in 1.5 and tic mark then draw your roof points. Remove the piece between the pointed pieces in section 2 & 4. See below.
Now time to decorate. Ribbon was attached before Halloween paper is adhered to first and last section to hide ends of ribbon.
Cut all your papers about 1/8" smaller than the base. I distressed all the base edges with Tim Holtz walnut. I also used various dies to give me doors, fences, benches and paper punches for the bats and the edge of the roof. My pumpkins I fussy cut from a 12 x 12 sheet of pumpkin paper. They look so cute. The angle pockets are hand cut and a corner die was used to decorate it.
I just slipped a few ephemera's into 1 pocket and a couple fun tickets in the other. Pictures can be placed on the undersides of the waterfall.
The waterfall was super simple. I cut 3 pieces 2.75"x3" scored 1/4" on long side. folded edges were layered above each other for waterfall.
Now for the big one. You need 2 pieces of 12 x 12 if you want to make it simple. Cut 1 piece of 12 x 12 down to 12 x 8 and then score at 4, & 8. In sections 1 and 3 measure down and across 2" and drawn points.
From second sheet cut 1 piece 4.5" x 6 and score on short side 1/2". That will be attached to the previous piece so that when your house lays flat it will measure 16" long. Out of the second sheet you will also cut the roof or use a different color scrap as I have above. It should measure 5" x 7.75" and score in half along long side.
Once again measure layers about 1/8" smaller than house.
Here's the inside of the bigger one. The corners were decorated with a corner die and one of them I had made a mini mini album to slip inside.
The Mini mini album has a few solid pages to put some wallet size photos in it. Then here's the outside decorated.
I used all sorts of dies I had buried in my craft room. The door, and bench are Spellbinder dies. The pumpkins are all fussy cut from a sheet of scrapbook paper. The bats are foam stickers from the Dollar Tree.
Here's both houses together. Just let your imagination go wild and decorate. There are so many fun papers out there.
To be honest I really like the little one better. I think it's a cuter size. A plus is they both fold flat to put into an envelope.
Enjoy and til later
