Pretty Christmas - Keepsake House

I wish I could take the credit for this little house but the inspiration came entirely from the Scrapbook House I spied over on Michelle Last's lovely blog.  Now how did I make it. 


I took a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock. scored it at 3", 6" and 9 " .  Measured 5" up one side and drew a line across the page.  Then drew 2 triangles for the roof 2.5" high.  Cut out and covered it with patterned papers, and added some pockets to hold mementos and left space for 1st christmas photos to be added.

The card is 4" x4" and when assembled becomes the roof.


Papers : Pink Petticoat Fairy Lights
Image:  Pink Petticoat Sweet Cheeks
Paperclip and Grosgrain ribbon : Stampin Up
Promarkers and glitter
