DIY Home Sweet Home Decor
I’ve seen a lot of cute trendy wood block houses in store home decor departments and all over the place online and knew I could make something similar with my Pazzles Inspiration Vῡe™, especially since I knew I could build upon my recent project Giant Gift Tag Box.
Optionally Upcycle A Tissue Box
If you’ve looked at my projects you’ll see a large portion of them follow my passion to save the environment in both small and large ways by incorporating upcycled items, in these cases: transforming a tissue box into something super cute!
This project is the size of a low-profile tissue box, about 10 x 5 x 2 inches finished. The tissue box, though, is really just to help with the sturdiness and assembly; The project can be made without a tissue box, or resized, shortened or lengthened as desired.
Create In Any Color Scheme
The sky (or your paper resource) is the limit for color combinations and types of paper you could use to complete this project. You could choose brighter colors for a really quirky look or embossed or patterned papers to match your or a recipient’s other decor colors. Dress it up even more with some of Nida’s Beautiful Flowers on the roof or around the base. Use your imagination and have fun!
White cardstock 12 by 12 inches
8.5 by 11 black cardstock for the leaves, sentiment, and roof
3 by 3 scraps of red or rose cardstock for the hearts, and light green cardstock for the leaves
(alternatively, the project as pictured shows the hearts and leaves made from white cardstock colored before cutting with long strokes of light pink [crosswise to the heart cut] and light green [lengthwise to the length of the leaf sprigs cut] Sharpies.
4 dimensional foam stickers (about 3 mm size)
Low profile tissue box, emptied
Crafter’s tape or craft glue
Snack or sandwich sized zip bag, or small letter-sized envelope filled with about 1 C of rice, aquarium pebbles, or small gravel (or, see step 2)
Approximately 4 feet 4 inches of raffia or twine or string in neutral creme/tan color (though a ¼ inch black and white plaid ribbon would look so cute!)
