Some of my favorite swaps, both made and received, have been chunky houses. So, I'm starting this series back up again.

Chunky houses are so cute. Here are some examples for those who have not seen them before:

And Many Here

Now that you know what they are, here is 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 can choose to be inspired by the theme or by the color of the month.

November's Chunky House themes are: Fairy Tale and the color choice this month is Brown.

For these swaps, our Chunky Houses have a width of 3-5 inches. The height can vary any where between 4-8 inches. The base should be a semi hard surface, like a recycled cereal box, other food packaging or card board, etc. 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, paints, ribbons/laces, photos, fabrics, fibers, polymer clay, paper clay, and whatever else you like to make your house out of. You can optionally, decorate the back side also though that is not required. Please mail these in an envelope of some kind. Please sign and date the backs of the houses. Have fun making these cool little houses!

Please have a filled out profile, and no recent unexplained low ratings. This is an International swap, as you can make these semi flat and send with one stamp.

So its flat then just shaped like a house? And decorated to look like one?

Do you decorate both sides or just the front?

Yes, they have flat bases, then you can add chunky embellishments. You can decorate like a house, or not. It does not have to look like a persons house, for instance you could make a fairy house or a dog house, or just decorate the house shape for the theme...this month, Fairy Tale is the theme of the color brown. You are only required to decorate one side, but many do both.
