Lucky Leprechaun's County Cottage

 Hello all! This week at The Cutting Cafe we were able to choose any file we wanted as long as we did it mostly green. It's so hard for me to pick ONE file because I love them all!
I finally decided on the 3D House Set. The possibilities are endless with these 3D houses! Here is one I did in a Christmas theme.  I can totally envision an Easter themed house with a bunny out front and little Easter eggs...So much fun! 

I bought the little Leprechaun, the tree and the rocking chair at Micheal's. I saw tons of cute miniature things that you could use for these houses at both Micheal's and Joann's. I now have a growing stash of miniature stuff =) 

I cut 2 sets of the house and used one set to make boards. After I had cut, embossed and distressed the boards, I attached them to the side of the house with Scotch ATG.

You can choose to make a house that doesn't open or one that does. I love being able to fill the house with goodies so I made mine open. 


I used a small box that I had on hand as a base for my house. I covered it in green paper and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 
I used chipboard for the ground, painted on Mod Podge and covered it with clover confetti. 
I used little rocks from my driveway to make the walk way up to the house. 

The glitter that I used for the walkway is actually gold. The pictures make it look rainbow colored.
