While browsing the West Elm catalog (love WE), I saw this really cute handmade display they were featuring.
My first impressions were "how cool and neat", and "I will never figure out how to make it". While doing some spring cleaning, I browsed the West Elm catalog again, and my second impression was "I might be able to make it after all". I remembered seeing a diagram on how to put together a little paper house in hello sandwich's book, kawaii wrapping materials book. She is an amazing Australian artist and graphic designer living in Japan. It is really cute how she comes up with so many unique and beautiful designs for different things. This is the book.
And here is a little snapshot of the little house diagram.
And from that little diagram, this is the outcome. All you have to do is fold it up and glue it together.
How cute is this tiny little house?
And before you say it, I will say it here first. Yes, these little houses will be perfect for an advent calendar at Christmas time, which I will be making this year.
And after making a whole bunch, this is the final display.
I love it. It looks so unique and different. Definitely worth the time that it took to make.
Hope you liked today's little craft and will give this a shot. It really wasn't hard to make and you could even add little windows to the houses.
Hope you have a fantastic long weekend!
