It has been fooooorever since my last post! I did miss you! So many awesome things have played out these past weeks. I have moved to a new studio. No more working from home- I have a real office! Err- if you can call it that. More like a fabric, pompom, glitter, crafty playground. Here's a peek... Along with my Lala's shop, I have been teaching teens and adults to sew. The adults have been so fun and I love how excited they get when they first sew their first stitch on the machine. And the teens- yikes- I was so worried about them. I mean they are teenagers and well I'm scared of them. But they are lovely, lovely girls! Yay!
So now with all this new space, my creativity has just about exploded! Did I mention the 8' X 8' cutting table. Feet not inches! That's a heck of a lot of cutting my friends.
I needed a project, you know- to cut, and came up with a little house to store the boy's lego figures. Here's what you'll need...
- 1 poster sized white foam core
- highlighter of your color choice
- hot glue gun
- exacto knife
Cut 6 pieces of the foam core 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches using you exacto and ruler.
Using your hot glue, make a rectangle using the 2 large pieces and 2 smaller pieces. Be sure to glue the smaller pieces inside the bottom and top edge of the of the large pieces.
Hot glue middle and bottom shelf using 2 smaller pieces. Using the last 2 smaller pieces, cut them slightly at an angle before you attach them to the roof. This will allow them to snug up closely to the top.
Use your favorite highlighter color and fill in the front edge of the entire house. You are done! Yay! I used an angled push pin to hang mine with on the wall. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!
