Easy peasy lemon squeezy just like this fun project I made with the Owls Hoot Collection!  All I did was reclaim a tabletop house shaped bookcase I found on clearance for $5 at Target and turn it into a dog house for my kiddo’s American Girl pets!  My kiddos love owls so this collection came in handy  since I made all their American Girl Doll bedding with owl fabric. Love when crafty kismet happens!

What I did was measure and cut down the design paper and attache using my Xyron Mega Runner and for the ribbon, I cut down American Crafts ribbon ran it though my 5 inch Creative Station and dressed the internal and external edges.  I traced out some flower stencils using Kiwi Lane Designs Tiny Accents, inked the edges and ran through my Xyron Creative Station and attached to the roof. I dressed the house with flower accents I had on hand and the collection 3D stickers and Puffy stickers.

About apieceoflifespie

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
