Next one in the Halloween collection is the Embossed Roof Halloween house made with a new Sizzix die that makes strips like Dresden trim - which happens to make a really cool roofline. More on my blog https://paperglitterglue.com/embossed-roof-paper-halloween-house/

Latest house is a two-sided house with a regular front and an open back that looks like an apothecary cabinet. It was kind of fun to do. I have 2 more similar houses in the works (a bakery for Christmas and a Halloween shop for capes and hats). It's called simply the Apothecary Halloween house. I did write it up on my blog - https://paperglitterglue.com/apothecary-halloween-house-potions-shop/

Another two-sided house. This one is a used bookstore. Be careful because you may find that just like making little houses, making little books is kind of addictive. I worked on the twisted tree in the front of the house by painting it a little darker for more contrast and making the branches more crooked. It looks a little better.

For my two-sided Christmas house, I am going to put a fireplace scene in the back based on the illuminated fireplace that Howard and Lynn made a while back which you can read about here https://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1230&hilit=Fireplace.

I love your 2 sided houses. The spider web on the base is a great idea.

I'm looking forward to your Christmas house.
