The one about the milk carton

Okay so it's not really made from a milk carton, but it looked like one after I finished it. I actually started out with a small cardboard box because I couldn't find a paper mache house to work with.

This is another Foof-A-Life project that didn't get much coverage in the book due to space limitations. I thought the little windows with the kids peeking out were fun!
The original Foof line is the best--including those rub-ons!! The windows were made by inlaying small matchboxes into the house. The children are cut from Foof paper. I stamped behind their heads before gluing them into the matchbox.

This project is just adorable. Don't you hate space constraints in books? Glad you posted more images of this project here on your blog.

This is one of my favorite things in the book. Does it say in the book that you used matchboxes inside the window? I must do this!

It is TOTALLY ADORABLE!!! Sorry they didn't put much of it in the book. It certainly should have received more coverage.

Yours is wonderful, made from your own imagination & hands. [as an FYI, there is a little chipboard house coming out from CraftySecrets (.com)].
