Minis On The Edge


This house was a really fun build! My houses never feel completed without a Base with trees & flowers and my customers usually expects them of me now. I Think I love the bases myself with flowers because to me, that is what really make my houses look realistic. When I first started using bases (About 10 years ago) I used cardboard because I personally used to love to change them and it was lightweight enough to pick up and have it glued to the house. I then switched to thin wood but had to have the square edges because I don't do power tools. Then I moved on to foam core or builders foam. I tell you this because ALL of theses methods can give you wonderful results. It just depends on what you feel more comfortable using.

This is a picture of the house before I added flowers and trees to the base:


This is the house completed with the base with Trees & Flowers added:


Now please note that I had to take pictures while inside my house. It has been raining and storms for the past 2 days so I have not been able to go outside but I am anxious to share this house with you all. Remember to Have fun while you mini!
