Christmas is probably my favourite holiday (likely, it is yours too!), so of course I am working on a Christmas project with so much passion! :) Actually, I am working on several projects at the same time... I feel like I want everything ready by tomorrow evening! And I probably would do just that if I didn't have children to feed and a house to take care of. Do you feel like that sometimes, too? :)
Anyway, I have been working on this project for quite some time. First of all, because I only have little time to put it together and secondly because I didn't have... a Christmas tree. I ordered a few online, but hey took so long to reach me. I guess it's because the only shop I could find them at brings them from abroad based on your order only... Anyway, here is my beloved Christmas roombox, as it looks now. I know it is not perfect, but what I'm looking for is to capture the holiday feel...
I still have lots to add, including the food on the table, mounting the window frame, arranging everything around the Christmas tree and stuffing my bookcase. Hopefully, they will be ready really soon! I can't wait to show you my finished project! My three very young children (aged between 17 months and 4 1/2 years) are in awe... :) They like to observe every detail and add or move things in the box. Among the many projects I have on mind is also a two-story cardboard dollhouse for them. I think they would absolutely love it... if only I could finish it before Christmas!!!
The bookcase is made by myself (as most of the things in the room) from corrugated cardboard covered in self-adhering paper resembling wood. The trims are laser cuts. The dollhouse in the bookcase is actually a cabin found in a surprise chocolate egg and the fireplace was a transparent sticker which I attached to white card stock.
I made the couch as well. I initially made a green armchair, but I couldn't find the right place in the room for it, so I decided to try this corner sofa. I know, there is a flaw on its backrest, but it will be covered with a toy. The green fabric is an old unused handkerchief (I have quite a few of them, different colors). The rug is cut out from a catalog and the dog comes from my kids' toy stash... I am not sure it will stay indoors though! :)
I hope you like it and I can't wait to show you the progress on my other projects!!
