Alfredo's house

Alfredo joined me in my freshly cleaned craft room today and made this:


Can you believe how adorable that house is (and that boy!)?

I was playing around with Brenda Walton's new Country Cottage die from Sizzix and Alfredo wanted to make one too. He did great...even lining up the scallop roof! He picked glittery paper for the house and shiny silver metallic paper for the roof. Great choices, right? It looks so adorable.


Best of all, the whole house is hinged so we can tuck in a little battery powered tea light. He wanted to put a little ornament of a teddy bear on a rocking horse in there too. So cute!

 I think this might be our Christmas craft gift from Alfredo this year! He loved making it and can even almost operate the Big Shot on his own!

How adorable is that? Charlotte taught a craft at MEHC Worshop one year. We made little cardboard houses. It was so fun to do. Glad Alfredo participated in your craft time. Pass along congrats on a job well done! Julie
