I'm a big fan of funky mixed media houses and I know some of you are, too. Let's go and make us some!

We'll create a funky house for our partner that is a minimum of 4"x6"-ish in size and no larger than 5"x7". This will be shaped art and not mounted on a background. Start with a flat substrate, like heavyweight art paper, recycled cardboard box or chipboard. The shape of your house is up to you! Pitch the roof how you want, make it square, give it a chimney or don't. Then decorate the heck out of it. We're going for maximum funkiness and whimsy, so don't be shy. The front of your house needs to be fully decorated while the back can have minimum decor and your signature.

Here are some links for inspiration:

If there's a fair amount of interest in this, I'll host more funky shack swaps so we can collect our own little village. This is USA only due to the fact that I know these will get chunky and/or rigid and be tricky for shipping.

Like all our other swaps/tags: please send in a creative/decorative envelope!
