"A small wooden dollar store box transformed into a mini Steampunk booth of potions and charms. It rather reminds me of something that might be found in a mad gentleman’s shelf of curiosities." -Nichola

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.

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 )

Hello! What a beautiful job! I'm not much of a fan of Steampunk so much but I love Halloween. You made this haunted house so ornate and interesting. I could play with it for hours. Sometimes I get the crafty bug around Halloween so I bookmarked this page to try it one day. It was a real pleasure watching your video. I look forward to seeing your other creations!
Sincerely,
Nicole
