Spring Paper House – Violets on the Roof
I kind of go crazy if I don’t make a house about every week. I thought of this house to go with a specific challenge, but then realized it didn’t fit with the challenge rules. Fortunately, Simon Says Stamp to the rescue! The Monday challenge is “Things with Wings” so it fits here.

How to make Realistic Paper Violets
Make the stenciled surface on the Violets on the Roof house
DIY Easter Grass
Bunnies – every Springtime or Easter house needs Bunnies, right?
The bunnies were punched out of thick card stock. I glued about 3 layers together to make them stronger then drew on a little pink nose and dots for eyes.
The underlayer of the roof was painted with Peeled Paint Distress Paint. In retrospect, I should have used a watered down version of Mowed Lawn to match the grass better. Mowed Lawn is a greener green. Peeled Paint is an olive green.
Bird on the Roof
The bird on the roof is a Tim Holtz punch by Sizzix. I couldn’t get it to stand up very well so I used some tiny flowers to brace the bird on each side. The chimney is stamped with bricks from a Stampendous stamp set called Cottage Home.
