Cardboard Playhouse: Day 2

I added some fun details to the playhouse today. I decided against making curtains because I want to make sure enough light gets inside, but I did use some tulle to make a screen on one window. I was going to screen the openings at the top, but it just didn't look nice (so we will have to just deal with the bugs). I will, more than likely, make a little mail box over the weekend to put next to the front door. So, here's the playhouse at 99% finished (and the cutest residents EVER).

The lovely red door for good luck!

My fairly crappy version of some cherry blossoms on a tree. It's not that I can't make cherry blossoms, but I had an impatient toddler helping out. So they just became random blossoms on a naked tree.

I wanted to add something fun to one side of the house. It is a little minimalist without the bakery and post office. I personally enjoy a little minimalism but...

...look how cute it is when there's a little postal employee hanging out the window!

And how could anyone pass up the sweetest thing I've ever seen in any bakery EVER!?


  1. Toooooo cute! You're quite the artist there, ma'am! Very nice line drawings. Your baker seems to love her drive thru window. And I feel the urge to mail something...

  2. That is adorable, and the house is great too. :)

    I know it is cardboard, but I am envisioning several of these together to create Brown-David Ghost Town. :)

  3. This is just too, too cute! You did a fabulous job with it -- looks like the kids love it!

  4. Oh how I wish I had that much artistic ability to match all the ideas in my head! Great job, that is too cute.

  5. Hi,

    I am making a fake publication for university. We are demonstrating our photoshopping skills by making 3 pages from a made up magazine, which will be shown to our tutors. The magazine pages will not be comercially used.

    Do I have permission to use a couple of these photographs in my magazine pages, to promote the use of cardboard within childrens toys?

    I will be able to send you a copy of what I produce.

    Thank you, Lisa.

  6. um, sure. I guess so. Good luck on your project.
