This is exactly why I was so excited to join this group. This house reminds me of the ones my mother put on our Christmas tree every year. She had pink and blue and eggshell colors. Thank you so much for sharing. I am looking forward to making them for my Christmas tree and remembering my Mom.

Update...2-16-2020...

Now that all the openings have been cut...it’s time to carefully paint the raw cardboard edges and white paper edges of the printed paper with a gray craft paint that blends in with the printed flagstone...It’s a small detail I know...but I still do it...

I’m also in the process of painting the roof and base with a couple of coats of white...then coating with white sand...final assembly later this week...stay tuned...
