Halloween House: Part 1

Everyone needs a Halloween House!!  Especially one full of Canvas Corp Halloween paper!

First you start with a plain chipboard house that you can find at craft supply stores.  Once you have your form you want to use then your creativity can come to life!

More pictures of this project tomorrow!

My favorite embellishment I used on this project was the Canvas Corp black bumpers.  I cut them in half and created a scalloped look on the bottom, over the doorway and on the chimney.

The paper bushes on the sides were made by folding a 4″x12″ strip of paper in half and then cut slits every 1/2″ or so, but not all the way through the paper.  Then you roll the paper up and it forms the bush.  I wrapped the bottom of it with black twine.

This chimney topper was made using a black painted Canvas Mini Shape and then using a Canvas Corp T-pin to anchor it on top.  The T-pin was covered by the circle paper on the front and back.
