Since I was a little girl I have loved the Addams Family. I have put a great deal of time, patience and love into this piece trying to faithfully recreate their wonderfully creepy home.

This listing is for a 3-dimensional Addams Family house paper cutting. This house is created using thousands of tiny pieces of colored cardstock that are individually hand cut and then layered to create the 3-dimensional aspect. All the pieces in this house were painstakingly hand-cut with an x-acto knife down to the individual shingles, bricks and siding. The doorknob on the front door is made of a tiny gold seed bead. The foundation is made of pebbles that I hand-picked from the shores of Lake Superior. The windows are made of thermo acetate to give them a realistic look and shine. The steps on the front porch are made of layers of foam and paper to give it a lot of depth.

This house features many tiny paper details. There is a small clock set into the tower (the time being midnight of course.) There are four tiny windows set into both sides of the roof. I even used individual tiny pieces of paper to represent separate slats of wood in the shutters. My camera does it's best to capture all the details but my artwork always looks better in person.

The siding on the house is a wonderful bluish gray color cardstock. For the trim and the fancy designs on the roof I used a textured smoky green cardstock. The porch and railing was created using a light gray cardstock.

The house has been mounted on a black textured cardstock background inside a high quality 12 x 12 black stained wooden shadow box frame and is ready to display. The house itself measures about 6 1/4 inches at the widest point by approximately 8 inches at the tallest point. It has been signed and dated by me in the lower left corner for authenticity.

All of the carstock that I use is acid and lignin free. This piece is definitely a special and one of a kind item as it is not only handmade but I will not re-create this same house again!

This paper cutting was on display at the Horrible Imaginings Film Festival Haunted Art Gallery for fall 2011. If you are interested in finding out more about the film festival here is the link to their web page: www.hifilmfest.com

This house has also been featured on this wonderful Addams Family blog:
