Upcycled ( Recycled ) Milk Carton into a Tinker Fairy Steampunk House with Bee and Bird Nest Chimney

Bringing over a few projects from my old blog to keep them in one place. This is a project I did a few years ago for a swap.
  Rinse out a milk carton and let completely dry inside (no yukky smells needed :P )
Then decorate with papers (I used Graphic 45) added a roof from chipboard and loads of embellishments.
 large fairy charm by front door tiptoeing behind a stream made from blue glass chips coated in Glossy Accents with a fish charm jumping out
 The back I kept more plain but had to ad some funnnnnn stuff
 The chimney I glued a bunch of broken pieces from an old grapevine wreath and made a "nest" from moss - added a few plastic "eggs" left over from an Easter craft.
 Pieces of old floral arrangements and a snail shell that I found outside make up the fairy's garden yard
 A giant bumble bee charm to make it look more fairy size and a handmade pink paper flower using McGill Gardenia leaf punch.


  1. Oooh! What a lovely idea, to use a carton! This is a sweet little house, I love the embellishments.
