Howard,

I'm finally getting around to trying out some of the flattie patterns you've shared. Thank you for them, I've been having a lot of fun.

Blessings,
Steven

Very nice Steven. Cool to see others recreate the flatties from Howard's patterns (and very generous of Howard to share). Thanks for posting!

That's awesome. I was just looking at an old Heinrichsen set online and thinking it would be really cool to do them in cardboard.

Thank you Paul. I meant to get decent photos of all the ones we made before I stashed them away. I think I did post some photos of the village under the tree in here somewhere though.
