"For this swap you will create a "chunky row house" with a Christmas theme I will host four of these swaps before Christmas so if you join each swap, you should end up with a cute Christmas Village. There are lots of examplesexample on the internet.

Now that you know what they are, here are the swap details: You will make one chunky house for your one partner. This is a series of swaps, where we will make one a month. You can participate in every month or just choose the months that you would like to participate. Each month you will either make a house using Christmas colors or you will make the type of house of the month. September’s Chunky House themes are: Christmas colors or the Mayor's house (decorated for Christmas of course).

For these swaps, our Chunky Houses will be built out of sturdy cardboard and have a width of 3-5 inches. The height can vary any where between 4-8 inches. Some people will want to accordion attach their houses so do not attach the stand to the house itself. instead, you can look up any type of foldable easel and create an attachable easel covered in decorative paper to send along with your house. your partner can attach it to the back of the house if they so choose. This is a change to the previous swap instructions. if you need a pattern for a foldable cardboard easel, I can send you one or you can just look one up on the internet. The shape of the roof line is also up to you, so make house shapes in any style that you like. Please layer papers, embellishments, old Christmas cards, paints, ribbons/laces, photos, fabrics, fibers, paper clay, and whatever else you like to make your house out of. you can have doors and windows that open to surprise images if you like. You can optionally, decorate the back side also though that is not required but at least put nice paper on it so that when displayed it still looks nice. Please mail these in a sturdy envelope of some kind. Please sign and date the backs of the houses. Have fun making these cool little houses!

I will allow anyone into the swap with a 4.9 rating or higher, no ones or threes in the last six months. if you look flaky, I will not let you play. Christmas swaps are notoriously flaky so I want to protect all participants.
