D.I.Y. Cereal Box Houses by Bella Dia

I spotted the photo of these sweet houses by Bella Dia over on flickr last night and was amazed to discover that she created them by repurposing old cereal boxes!  Aren't they just adorable?!

What I love most about projects like this is how easily the finished piece can be tweaked and altered to look exactly how you like.  Perhaps you'd paint yours in bold colors like she's done here...or maybe you'd cover yours in vintage papers, dust it with glitter, or make a "gingerbread house" out of it.  The posibilities are truly endless!

If you'd like to give it a try you can find a full tutorial over on Bella Dia blog.  It's my birthday tomorrow and by tradition I'll be spending the day working on a new holiday craft.  I think this will be the one!

Ooo! I can see a whole Christmas village with snow and little figurines skating on a frozen pond in the middle of it all, with a Christmas tree somewhere. Very cool idea!

P.S. Hope you have a wonderful birthday! =)

Happy Birthday. Thanks for the continual inspiration! Amazing.
Love the cardboard houses... something I think I could do with my young boys without too much trouble. They look great.
