an altered house and a tag

This is the last project I made with the February Shakerbox kit and it is one of my favorite projects I have made so far. I put it on my mantle in the family room. I found the paper mache house at Michael's. Then I painted it ivory before applying the papers.

Supplies: paper, stickers, felt hearts, buttons and flowers, February Shakerbox kit. font, King. scrap of ivory cardstock. Mod Podge. ivory paint.
