Homework + Stamps = FUN

My DD had to decorate a washed out milk carton and turn it into a house. She has had this assignment for a couple of weeks but I sort of put it off until today...since it's due tomorrow. All these great ideas were from DD! She wanted the doors to open to reveal a picture of herself. Each of the side windows open to reveal one of her brothers. She, of course, chose the colors of the house, windows, doors, roof, flowers, tree....




I did the cutting with the exacto knife and around the doors and the windows. We totally lucked out b/c Granny has the stamp set "Fashion Statements" and I had some images (sent a while ago)which we used as the doors/windows. (Hey, I'm going to need more Granny, for the next milk carton house.)






Tomorrow, DD will take the house to school and learn how to map and build a neighborhood. They will add addresses too. I have never liked homework. But homework with stamps...makes for a fun hour with my DD!

McKenna...what a cute house. I love the idea of the windows opening to show your picture. That made it truly your house. Aren't stamps wonderful?

Awesome job! I know what you mean about homework & stamps. I've used my stamps, etc., many times with my dd for her weekly poetry journal assignments.
