Sweetest Little House …

Hello friends,

Not a card from me today but a cute little 3D house treat box. It was great fun making something different for a change. My project was designed for the new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room starting today. The challenge theme is “Swirls and Twirls” and using the inspiration photo on The Shabby Tea Room blog. This challenge is sponsored by The Cutting Cafe and you could be the lucky winner of a  credit to the store!

As Halloween is not a well-known event in South Africa I decided to use the colors of the inspiration photo to create my treat box. The 3D House Box set is kindly sponsored by The Cutting Cafe. It took time to assemble all the pieces and to decorate, but the when finished it is the sweetest little house! To enjoy whats inside the treat box you just lift the roof on the chimney’s side to see all the delicious toffees, chocolates and candy.

Entering the following challenges:


The back of the house decorated with a heart-shaped button


The sentiment hanging from the chimney


Flowers on the roof


The front  with roses, a heart-shaped button on the front door and lace


View from a different angle


A peep inside, filled with yummy treats
