I have two adorable granddaughters, and thought I'd make them a book/model of a well known fairy tale. There's lots of story options of course and I'm making a start on The Princess and the Pea. I used to like this story when I was a child, though I intend to update the story line a bit, so stay tuned for a bit of a laugh as things progress! I had also thought of Rapunzel - maybe see how this one goes.
Here's the outer construction of the castle. I'm making it up as I go along so have no patterns to share with you, sorry. Obviously it will be covered with vines and flowers. I was also thinking about a turret and possibly some astro turf and a nice table and umbrella! I'm sure if I had a castle I'd want to go on the roof to play.
Making the walls from mount board covered in stone effect paper.
These bits will hold the sides of my box together - no idea what they're called, but I've seen them on the corner of buildings.
Painting them a bit to look like stone edging.
Gluing them in place
Roof next I think.
