"Ladybird" House

I'm calling this a "Ladybird House" because that's about all that could live in it. The house itself is about 2 1/2 inches tall. It's made out of cereal box cardboard except for the chains, dangly key and doodads, and the BBQ skewer perch. I forgot to get a pick of the back where there is a smaller decorative keyhole.

This was really fun to make. My partner had wisted a similar smaller silver pendant. I made it after being inspired by a tutorial at Mich L. in L.A., which has a secret space under the roof to hide tiny treasures.

Up next will be project #4 that my daughter and mom helped with.

That is really cute! It would be great in a Steampunk/Faerie room :)

Thanks, CC! Guess my own interest in Steampunk is influencing my work these days. ;)
