Stags House .....



Here is a little house made as a standing Christmas decoration ....

I used a die and diecut the house parts from heavy card.  The roof was made from a strip of corrugated board.  The walls were covered in decorative papers before assembly.

The roof was daubed with white acrylic paint before distressing to remove some of the top layer of corrugated.  Finally very coarse glass glitter was adhered on hot glue on the roof and at the base to finish the house .....
