Need Inspiration? Here is my Chunky Halloween Houses Pinterest with ALL of the past Halloween Chunky Houses!

In this swap, participants will make and send out one house to each member in their group according to their partner’s themes. Participants will be put into groups of three. This means you will be making two houses. Optional: You may join two groups, where you would be making four houses.

Houses should measure equal to or less than 5 x 7 in (12.7 x 17.78 cm). Decorate the houses front and back with emphasis on embellishment, then sign the back with your LC name and date. We want everyone to remember that great house you made.

Please use a base material such as paperboard, matboard, wood, layered cardstock, or foam core. Basically, use something that can stand without flopping over in the future so you can have a whole chunky neighborhood. There is no need to create a stand for your chunky house. Most of us from the Old Site either hang them with clothespins or prop them up against other decorations.

Since this is a papercraft swap, no tracking/delivery confirmation is required, HOWEVER, you will have to remake and resend any packages that fail to reach their destinations. No exceptions.

Please send your house in a small padded envelope or sandwiched between cardboard. Write “DO NOT BEND” in red ink on both sides of your package. We want that chunky house that you spent so much time creating to reach its new home in good shape.

Communication is important.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer when you have sent–you must send to ALL of your partners at the same time (this seriously helps me with organization).
-PM your partner and organizer when you have received
-post your comments, questions, thoughts, teasers, etc. in this thread
-post individual photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery within one week and thank your partner

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO @irid3sc3nt VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Your Pinterest board is fantastic. So many memories of swaps past! Thank you.

And I sent in my Q! Whooo-ooo-eeee-eeek!

Aw, thank you! It’s definitely fun to look through and see all the different techniques used.
When I started putting it together, it had the names of who made it underneath but then Pinterest changed their look to just pictures so it doesn’t say anymore. I switched the photo requirements to individual photos of houses because sometimes if there are a couple together, it can be hard to see detail.

How did you know I was thinking about it? :exploding_head: :laughing:

Thats funny because I just found some bases that I had cut out before…They’re supposed to be symmetrical, …but, they aren’t…I don’t know why, the template had to be symmetrical…I folded the cardstock in half and cut it out.
They’e not “off” enough to be wonky houses…just messed up :angry:

It’s after midnight my time, which means that today is the last day for signups! Anyone on the fence has until midnight Mountain Standard Time to get in their Qs. I’ll send out partners Friday in the evening.

Tried to sign up last night…for some reason it wouldn’t go through, so I just tried to send it again (I LOVE that Lettucecraft saves the posts and messages…makes it so much easier)
I think it went through this time.

They’re most probably going to have to be wonky :laughing:

I have partners listed in the first post on this thread as well as the Gallery. I included you all in the signup messages, so I’m hoping that works as a way to disseminate the Qs. Let me know if it doesn’t work out.

Yay for partners! I am exhausted from cleaning out my moms house…we all are. Still have lots to do. Switching my brain to chunky houses will be so good.

It’s so quiet here. Is everyone busy creating their houses…or decorating?..or defending themselves from ghouls, goblins, ghosts, and other scary anxious Halloween creatures?

I haven’t even started designing. I just got back from a week of clearing out my mother’s house. She was a master stasher. Her fabric stash, tchotchkes collection, and random saved items is a crafter’s dream. Luckily I live states away and so could not haul home much. I already have a stash of epic proportions. But I did find some things that will definitely end up on a house or two.
