One of the main reasons I got Woodland was to make tissue houses (the other was to make spooky Halloween houses, that is yet to come). WELL, turns out none of the houses in Woodland work for tissue houses, the dimensions are not quite right, the chimneys are too small, and the way they laid them out, you have to use huge sheets of paper. So I had to make one using Plantin Schoolbook and DS. I made the file so that you make front/side on one 81/2 by 11 and back/side on another sheet. No need for big paper. This is for a purchased tissue box (I bought walmart brand and made it to fit). I did make the door from Woodland, just to justify my buying the cartridge, but you could just use a rectangle for the door if you didn't have that cart. Also if you have SCAL and trial version of DS/Plantin Schoolbook, you should still be able to cut the basic house with the plain door. The windows on the file come with the background and the frames, so you can decorate inside the house (notice my shades, curtains and even a little pumpkin!). I ran the roof parts through the cuttlebug (argyle folder) for texture. When assembling, use GOOD adhesive - I use the red stick strip kind, otherwise, when you tug to take a tissue, your roof will come off. I made the little leaves on the wreath with doodlecharms at 1/2 inch. I have some photos below to aid in assembly. My kids want one now that looks like a castle...hum. Thanks for looking, and for your feedback!
Cut your pieces with this file:
Attach tabs - do the three I have marked first, then bend the roof to the correct angle before securing the last tab (view from under the roof) Assemble house around box and secure roof to tabs with GOOD adhesive, pull tissue through chimney
