There are few things I love more than cute little miniatures and all things mid-century modern so to have a project that incorporates both of those? Pure heaven for me. Add to that the $155 giveaway I’m co-hosting and this is going to be one of my best-est posts EVER! Scroll to the bottom of this post for full details on the giveaway.
Ok, I’ve got to come clean with you all. I had big plans on making my own original patterns but then I stumbled (or should I say “gawked?”) upon a post on My So Called Crafty Life that linked to these perfect patterns on Retro Renovation and well…they’re so great and I’m so busy, why reinvent the wheel, right? Seriously, the patterns for these miniature mid-century houses are ah-mazing and totally free so get your butts over there and download them!
The only downside to the original tutorial on Retro Renovation was that it called for cutting out the pattern by hand. Totally feasible but sooooo much easier if you use a Silhouette cutting machine! All I had to do was pull the image into Studio and trace the image to create the lines. Then it was just a matter of selecting which lines would be cut and which would be perforated. I also added perforated lines to the tabs so that they would fold easier. Super easy and the machine cut like a dream.
Here’s the step-by-step details if you want to make your own!
