Some of my favorite swaps, both made and received, have been chunky houses. So, I'm starting this series back up again.

Chunky houses are so cute. Here are some examples for those who have not seen them before:

And Many Here

Now that you know what they are, here is the swap details:
You will make one chunky house for your one partner. This is a series of swaps, where we will make one a month..based on a monthly theme. You can participate in every month or just choose the months that you would like to participate.

March's Chunky House theme is: Fairy Tale or Nursery Rhyme

For these swaps, our Chunky Houses have a width of 3-5 inches. The height can vary any where between 4-8 inches. The base should be a semi hard surface, like a recycled cereal box, other food packaging or card board, etc. The shape of the roof line is also up to you, so make house shapes in any style that you like. Please layer papers, embellishments, paints, ribbons/laces, photos, fabrics, fibers, polymer clay, paper clay, and whatever else you like to make your house out of. You can optionally, decorate the back side also though that is not required. Please mail these in an envelope of some kind. Please sign and date the backs of the houses. Have fun making these cool little houses!

Please have a filled out profile, and no recent unexplained low ratings. This is an International swap, as you can make these semi flat and send with one stamp.

I'm also hosting a monthly 3D version Here in the Altered Art and Mixed Media group.
