Candy Cane House

This little house was soooo much fun to decorate once I overcame my fear. I knew I wanted to use this paper from the Candy Cane Designer Series Paper. I used Tombow™ Liquid Glue to glue the house together, to attach the DSP and to decorate the roof. The roof was made with strips of Wild Wasabi that I punched with the Scallop Border Punch. I glued the strips on the roof with a little overhang and then went back and trimmed the edges. The glittered door and shutters were made with Sticky Sheetst. The wreath was a Sticky Sheet I ran through the Big Shot with the scallop circle from the Pennant die. I made the "curtains" with retired ribbon from the Fairy Tale ribbon on the Stampin' Up!™ clearance rack. The snowflakes are also from the clearance rack.



I would have done a couple of things differently. I should have used Whisper White on the back of the Sticky Sheets for the shutters and wreaths to make them easier to handle. Also, I would have decorated the back of the roof before I glued it to the house.
