House Shaped Organizer Box

DIY House Shaped  Organiser
Hi friends this is my 3rd post as Designer Spotlight for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  





The theme for this week is "Home Sweet Home" . 

And I made a a magical mermaid's home !!
House Shaped Organizer Box
I'll admit I worked on this one for hours and hours !! Will quickly run you through some of the closeup shots.

How can a mermaid's home not have shells ...! Well I added some huge shells which are part of my treasured collection from a holiday in one of the best beaches in the world Candolin Beach, Goa.
You can also see glass beads gel and tiny glitter balls all over this mermaid's abode. I cut our an image of the gorgeous mermaid and added her to a glass pebble/cabochon and propped her up on a foam disc.

 I used Prima texture crackle paste and TCW microbial stencil  and Carabelle Studio geometrie stencil in many places!
Prima Crackle Paste

Prima Typo Bulbs
  The Prima Typo Bulb I had been hoarding was just perfect for this project!

 Love how easy it is to create 3 D projects using Graphic 45 papers!
Framed Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath the Sea
 The project has lots of fussy cut sea weeds, corals and starfish and the gorgeous mermaid has a resin sea horse for company! I made the sea horse using resin, alcohol ink and a chocolate mold!

 Tiny pearls in a heart shaped bottle for the mermaid!

 More resin embellishments..
Resin Seaweeds, Crackle Paste Bubbles
 The sea weeds were made with silicon molds and resin and colored by adding alcohol ink into the resin mixture before it set.
Fussy Cutting , Sea Shells and Sand Dollars
 My favorite view of the home!
House Shaped Box
 It features a large  dome and  a beautiful image from Graphic 45 papers which I framed inside it and added a glittery gold border.
Glass Dome
 Inside the dome are tiny pearls, star sequins and little sea shells.

 The other side features a mesmerizing mermaid standing tall and beautiful ! I added some stamped and colored sea horses and goldfish to give her company!

 The backside of the house has the storage compartments.

 I kept the roof lightweight on this side as it has to swing open to reveal the shelf inside.

 Used Prima texture crackle paste for a lovely shiny texturing.

 And added glass beads gel for the sea glass effect.

 The netting I used had some cool Styrofoam elements embedded and this gave a cool sea foam appearance! The starfish was handmade using molds and airdrying clay and shaped to give more dimension!
Netting and Clay Starfish
 I used 3 hinges to hold the 2 halves of the roof and the back half swings up to reveal a shelf which is large enough to hold bottles, ink pads, pens ,little notebooks and what not!
Drawer inside the roof
 I used danglers from my local fabric shop and attached them using discs of foam.





The main body of the house holds an organizer I made using chipboard pieces .I had to use an antique metal handle from my local hardware shop as the drawer compartment was quite thick and sturdy!
Antique Metal Drawer Handle
I used 2 pieces of medium weight chipboard to make sturdy parts for the organizer.
House Shaped Box Construction
I used wet glue as well as strips of card stock to stick the pieces together.

I constructed the compartments in such a way that it will be the perfect storage for my embossing folders .

I love to use corrugated paper to line 3 d projects as it is so easy to go over the edges.

I actually designed the drawer compartment first and then made the "house" to fit over it!!The completed house is 13.5 inches tall , 12.5 inches wide and the "body" is around 7 inches wide.

 The roof was the trickiest part to design and I was so thrilled when I got it to work!!

And here is how it looks after adding gorgeous Graphic 45 papers.

    Hi Sonia!
    I am fan of your blog.. I have read each and every post and loving them :) Should learn how to joggle among many things from you.
    I am way far away from you. Can i know where can we get chipboard sets which you used for making this house and other organisers in your blog? Any online site in india will be most useful for me..
    Thanks

    1. Papitha chipboard is available in many different thickness and quality. In this one and the others I shard the past few days I used 2mm chipboard from ItsyBitsy.I think it should be available online too.
