My daughter and I are working together to make a Halloween House. I had seen one done on one of the online stamp suppliers and thought it would be fun to do. I ordered a couple of sets. They are cut out of wood and actually were made in Australia. We have only been able to get together once and in that session we did cover all sides with papers and then sanded down the paper edges.

Tomorrow we are getting together and hope to get a lot accomplished. I only have 2 weeks left before we leave for Fand it will probably take another 2 sessions to get it finished. They end up as a book that opens and you can then display it. I will show the couple of pics I took of just the paper covered pieces. will post on the weekend what we get done tomorrow. It is fun doing something with my daughter. She is more into the stamping and creative memory albums. She has been keeping them since the 3 boys were little. They will be nice for them someday or at least for their wives to look at.

The wives and children and eventually the guys will treasure the things your daughter is making...esp the things made with Grandma!

Freda, I love it, I have been thinking of starting the tradition of making a haloween gingerbread house each year with the kids.

Two weeks? Wow - that time has passed so fast!!! I'm looking forward to seeing your wee Halloween houses.

Made in Australia??? I've never seen them here! But I've never looked, so I suppose that is why, lol! They are very cute. You are lucky to have such a relationship with your daughter where you do craft things together.
Thanks for your comment on my blog about football - it was nice to have somebody post a comment that agreed with my sentiments!
