Handmade Cottage

Hello everyone, I wanted to update you on what I’ve been up to recently.

Yesterday when I was sitting in school, I had an idea…My idea was to turn the little cardboard box that my Sylvanian Collectors Club things came in, into a teeny cottage for my Sylvanians, and the results were much better than I expected!

It started off as a plain, normal cardboard box that didn’t really look too brilliant, but once I had cut off the bits I didn’t need or want, it was starting to take shape.

I wrapped it in nice paer, inside and out. When the walls were done, I realised that I didn’t have enough material to make the carpet, but then I had yet another idea

The finished product:

I decide against the idea of matching, simple colours and went rainbow for the door (I just LOVE rainbow stripes!) I named my cottage ‘Water Lily Cottage’. But the best part was my carpet inside.

The little squares I cut out just seemed to fit perfectly onto the floor. I can only fit a little bit of furniture in, but there is actually more space than I thought there would be. At the moment, the Dante cats are living here with their new little baby Matilda Dante – it’s a bit of a squeeze! I am very pleased, and I am especially pleased that I can finally use a little of my creativity without ruining any of my other Sylvanian things.
