Family Fun Project: A "Modeltown" Villa Out of Paper

Continuing our tradition of trying always to do our best creatively as well as within copyright restrictions, here is the second of two papercrafted buildings dating from around the turn of the last century.
While we realize some of you may have never visited here before, please note how our instructions towards the completion of these two projects may be found HERE, where we've included the basic materials we'd recommend you start with, along with a few basic tips for use throughout.
This may well be a tough project. It is not recommended children should try this on for themselves without some assistance, as for many it would be too difficult. However, when put together by adults and children together, it could well be a lot of fun.
Let each house hold its own distinction, with color, decorative touches, and so forth, and let each child feel proud she or he was able to contribute to the process of making a truly unique finished product.
It is possible, near where you and your family live, there could be some fine examples of mid-Victorian to late-Edwardian architecture. This might make for a fun family outing, and provide further ideas for what a house would look like from that era.
Anyway, here are the patterns, with some instructions, for an antique style house made of paper. I think this might well be fun during Winter school break as well as for rainy days or family gatherings the rest of the year. Those already having our church pattern from this series may wish to call our villa the Rector's lodging or Minister's house. We think that, any way you may choose to consider the history behind such a little house, there's creative fun to be had.
Happy Creativity, everybody!
Rose & Studio Friends

Hi Frenchy! Glad you could come by! You must be having a busier than normal time of it with your moving soon!
I had no idea you used to design actual houses. I keep thinking you have great taste with interior decor, with placement, and so on. Now I know you have another facet to this creative self you share with everybody online.
What a fascinating job that must have been!

Hi Rose! Thanks so much for stopping by. Yes, I did know that is a Charlie Chaplin song; and it is one of my most favorite songs in the world! I come from a long line of pessimists, and I really fight NOT to be one! So keeping my attitude in check, or proper perspective, is very important to me. I don't want to live my life miserable and bitter.. I want to SMILE!.. And I want to be REMEMBERED as SMILING, not crying, crabbing, or pouting! (0; Hope you're smiling too, and that you have a wonderful weekend! ~tina

Tina: Hi there! So glad you could stop by!
Your choice for Nat King Cole's version of that song has got to be my number one favorite. :)
And I know what you mean about natural pessimism. Two of us here tend toward that LOL.
I'll remember your song every time I see your blog's avatar online, and I promise you I'll at least give it a try to "Smile."
;)

whymsicalmusings: Hello! We are so touched by your outpouring of care and concern to all those whose lives were wrecked by the hideous storms and tornados this spring. We feel you ought to have more coverage, as much as possible. Not that our blog's got more audience members, so to speak, just maybe different ones.
So, you most heartily welcome, and any time you want to support a trustworthy cause like today's, you just let us know and we'll hop on board wherever doable.
Meanwhile we hope to revisit your team's blog post on the subject to check in with the progress toward funding.
You take care now!
And thanks for stopping by!

Hello? I recently found your blog and i'm in love with it.I love this design and i'm planning to do it.I really wanna try this project but i have few questions to ask you.
First could you mind explaining what rule B means? I'm kinda confused by it. Secondly, if i wanna print out the pattern, do i prin it in A4 size?

Plush Possum Studio said...

Hi Kokuri: I didn't receive any notifications for a few days for some reason. I just checked my comments and there you were! So sorry for the mixup. I am so pleased you like my blog! :) Thanks for your nice compliment.
Now to answer your question. I had to look this one up for us both, as it had been quite a while since I had. This is one of my earlier posts.
A U.S. 8.5 " x 11" is virtually the same as your British or EU A4, which is 210 x 297 mm. All of my Printables, with very few exceptions, are A4 or U.S. standard print copy in size. This one has 1/2" borders on all 4 sides, too, as I was still new to the idea of making everything I post here fit universally.
So you are correct! A4 would be just the thing! :)
I hope you'll peruse the Categories List (Left narrower column), where you'll find everything from my humblest and earliest efforts to my most recent and somewhat braver style.
My Spring Garden Collection is something a number of people have used in various projects. Please don't hesitate to ask any further questions you might have related to anything I've posted to this blog.
One tip for you: Please do check every time for red letter or highlighted Guidelines. These area simple guide as to my copyrights as well as those of any other contributing artists.
The one you've inquired about is copyright free and in the Public Domain, as are a number of my other offerings here - although not all, by any means.
Enjoy - and Thank you so much for stopping by!
:)
Rose
