Hi everyone :-)
There has been some questions if I could make a tutorial on how to make chipboard creations so here is a start to finish project on a house stand for the Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale mini album.
In this part we will decorate the box with some fussy cut outs.

Hope this is helpful and that you can get some new ideas :-)

In the drawer many different things can be stores such as goodies, cards or memories :-)

Backside ( or front if you like ) of the house.

Front of the house with a light in the roof window.

The roof can be used on both sides of the album and stand.

Also great to have some goodies in the drawer :-)
