Let your imagination run wild... I did! Go crazy with color and patterns or follow a more traditional realistic color scheme. So many visions I did have as this cardboard house and scrapbook paper forest began to transform into a magical land. The cardboard house directions can be found on the Better Homes and Gardens web site. No pattern needed for the trees... just form a cone shape with a piece of tagboard, glue two scrapbook paper strips together (or use paper with a pattern on both sides), then curl the ends by wrapping around a pencil, and overlap in rows.
