crafty creative scraps easter candy house

Good Monday morning! I'm ready to start the new week, it's going to warm back up this week, YAY!! We've experienced all 4 seasons in the last 2 weeks, unbelievable! I'm ready for 1 season,Smiley from millan.net

Easter is just around the corner, the stores have isles of candy and pretty pastel colors! I love walking the isles and just taking it all in!
I made an Easter candy house using the new Crafty Secrets Easter Creative Scraps and the Sweet Chips Chipboard Little Folding House! I can't get enough of these sweet images, I used them on all 4 sides.
There is a front and back and 2 little chickies peeking out of the windows on each side. I glued the house on a chipboard coaster and covered it with glitter.
I made the shingles on the roof with my SU! scalloped punch. I punched scalloped circles out of scraps from my CS Pastel Paper Pad and cut each one in half and I applied them starting at the bottom of the roof, going up. There are 4 rows with 3 half scallops in each row on each side of the roof. I adhered them with my atg gun along the top edge of each scallop so I could curl the shingles up a little for dimension. I sprayed the roof with Pearl Glimmer Mist before I added the rick rack, it shimmers so pretty!
I bought these cute little pink chicks at Michaels, there were a bunch in a little box. I covered the eggs with Martha Stewart glitter.
The pink handle on the roof is a wooden ball that I painted with pink Making Memories paint. Terry got involved with this project, he drilled a hole throught the ball so I could attach it through the roof of the house. I used a silver pipe cleaner, I threaded it through a button and put it on top of the ball and threaded it down through the roof and twisted it to keep it in place. I punched a Martha butterfly and attached it with the silver pipe cleaner that I wound around a pencil for the spiral.
Take the roof off and enjoy the little malted eggs, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
