A "Cozy" House

There are many templates, svg files and dies available for making cute paper houses such as the one we're sharing today.  Authentique papers are the perfect weight and texture for creating an extra sturdy house or two.

From various Cozy Collection 12X12 papers, the house and its components were cut using a house die by Sizzix.  

The shutters and chimney were cut from the red solid pattern found in the 6X6 Paper Pad. The shingles were attached to the roof and then glittered.

The die set also comes with a base to attach the house to.  After assembling the house and attaching it to the base, a box was made by cutting a piece of patterned paper:

The box was cut to be slightly smaller than the base, scored and then glued together at the sides.

A small gift, battery operated tea light or a few packets of hot chocolate mix can be tucked inside.

The bottom of the box was edged in pom pom trim and the front embellished with one of the Components pieces and a shaped sticker.  

Two vintage bottle brush trees were added to the sides of the house.
