I’m delighted to be part of the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop featuring 60 designers. That’s 60 designs with instructions each week.
Christmas is just 7 weeks away! Can you believe it? I chose to make a Peppermint Candy house since the season is so close.
It was really fun to make so here are the materials you need as well as the instructions.
#656836; Sizzix Scoreboards Pro Die – House, 3D, by Eileen Hull
Sizzix 12×12 matboard, white
Sizzix Big Shot Pro die cutting machine
1/4 yard red/white stripe fabric
Beacon Fabric-Tac Glue
Red acrylic paint
Yellow and green card stock
Assorted red and white buttons
1. Fold tabs areas of the house back and trace the outline of the house on the back side of the stripe fabric with a pencil. Cut out adding 1/4″ all the way around the house outline.
2. Lay the fabric right side down and glue the house to the back side of the fabric. Cut an X in the window and door areas, cutting from corner to corner. Fold the pieces back and glue to the back side of the house. Fold edges around the house back and glue to the back of the house. Cut pieces for the door and windows from the card stock and glue to the back side of the house. Fold house and glue together following instructions with the die.
3. Fold batting in half and cut a piece of batting the width of the roof and adding 1/2″ to the depth. Lightly glue the batting together between the layers. Align raw edges of the batting to the back edge so that the fold is over the front edge of the roof. Glue the batting to the roof. Put a line of glue on the front edge of the roof and press the batting over the edge. Glue the window and door frames in place.
4. Paint the roof and door of the small house red and paint red dots on the front. Paint the fence red. Fold house together and glue on the roof. Glue the small house to the larger house, overlapping by 1/3″. Glue buttons to house. Glue fence to attach to house.
