Plywood Mansion!

This was one monster of a project but it is now complete... after only five days and three trips to get more paper! (You can click the pictures to see them larger)

My friend called me the other day and said that Cotton On Kids in DFO Cairns has plywood doll house kits marked down from $39.95 to only $5.00! I raced in there (luckily I was parked just on the other side of the road anyway) and picked one up. I had NO idea how big it was! The picture on the box was only a black and white sketch and there were no real instructions so it was quite interesting seeing it take shape. Quite a surprise to find it had a bay window on the side because the box didn't have one of those!

So anyway, I covered it all in Ruby Rock It paper and put some transparencies in the windows and some artificial vines on the sides with some little paper flowers.
