Steampunk Spells Spooky House Video Tour:
Had so fun making this house stand. Made this so the whole family can use it and that it is a bit fun for children to look at. Used Steampunk Spells paper pads and 2 Small Matchboxes from Graphic 45 as a base and the chipboard is from Accucut Craft and some I bought here in Norway. The house, doors and fence is painted with Tim Holtz black Crackle paint. Spooky house stand for the envelope mini album. Here is a lot going on. Made hanging lantern, door, spooky house with acetate windows, banner and a lot of other fun stuff.
Placed some altered bottles and a bike on the outside and used a key hole and key on chain around the door.
Whats in the drawers? Skeletal man pops out! Booooo!
On the back side there are shelf and here I placed electric candles.
Chipboard from Accucut Craft. Fence and tree die, lantern light,bottles and black Clackle paint from Tim Holtz.
Black paint from Claudine Hellmuth,Cain.door closure,metal bike from Etsy,Wire, acetate for the windows,Copic markers,black thread,wood stick
Here is a tutorial on how the Steampunk Spells house stand is made. Used 2 Small Matchbook Boxes from Graphic 45 as a base and the chipboard for the house is from Accucut Craft. All the other pieces are cut out from 1.9 mm chipboard. The house, doors, lamp post and fence is painted with Tim Holtz black Crackle paint
Paintet the 2 matchboxes black
and cut out 4 strips chipboard 11 x 1 1/2 ( minus a bit )
and 8 strips 3 3/4 x 1 1/2 ( minus a bit )
The chipboard I used is 1.9 mm thick so you might have to adjust it if you are using an other thickness
The largest door measure 4 inch hay on the largest side and 3 1/5 on the other side. 1 3/4 wide. Added 1/4 strips chipboard around. The rounded door measure 3 on the largest side and 2 on the other side.3/8 wide. Used glue gun to make the texture. Crackle painted.
Top and bottom measure 11 x 3 1/2. Cut in 1/4 in the middle where the door is going on the top plate.
Template for the house. Crackle paint glued it on the back. Used acetate for the windows and colored the in all corners with a yellow and brown Copic marker. Then cut out one more template in black cardstock and glue it on the back.
Template for lamp post, and shelves on the backside for lights.
Used On the edge Fence die from Tim Holtz. You can also make the fence if you dont have this die. Have a tutorial ho to make it and here is the link:
Starts at 14.25 minutes in the video
Pop up from the drawer. Cut 10 strips of black cardstock 1 7/8 and score every 2 inch. Glue together as show below.
Then start folding and glue on new strips when needed.
Hope you will give it a try and have fun creating!
