Wooden Letter Box Birthhouse

It was really a look, for a nice wooden house, which we could use as a letterbox house. As a baby shower gift or in the nursery this is so nice, but many cottages were quite expensive and had too many or too few boxes, to our liking. But luckily we came across this cottage, which of course we wanted to pimp! With nice pieces of Décopatch paper that is so squeaked, and you can immediately look for nice things to display in it.

The cottage does not necessarily have to be made for a baby or children's room, hear! You can also think of your collection of rhinestones, small pictures, thimbles, shells, pawns, miniatures, coins or other little things you like. It is also nice to decorate the letterbox as a birthday present or wedding gift with personal items or funny things. Actually, this cottage is suitable for any occasion and for any age!

You can find the wooden white letterbox HERE !


Paint the wooden cottage white, or any other base color. The inside of the compartments don't have to, if you're going to cover those back walls with nice design paper.


Choose 3 or 4 matching papers from. Décopatch paper comes in a lot of fun designs! If you want to take a look at the range, click HERE .


Measure the boxes and use a geotriangle to cut tight rectangles (and one triangle). Glue the edges/corners in the box lightly and paste the paper onto.


The paper with the kittens is our favorite design, it's soooo cute! View the HERE


If the 7 squares are pasted, your cottage is already ready to decorate.


What are you doing in?

Some ideas to put in your cottage (depends on who the cottage is intended for):

Ironing bead pieces, stones, felt figurines, mini-terracott tapotjes, wooden board figures, pompons, chenille thread, bows, pictures, plastic flowers or twigs, wooden print, date of birth, number of cm (at birth), nostalgic stamps, pacifier, diaper pin, hearts, small duckduck. mini swiss bottle, homemade clay figurines, large beautiful beads, mini embroidery or crochet, teebox, mini canvas cloth (on mini-donkey, sugar hearts, sweets, jewellery, chicks, birds, shells, train, mini-slippers, foam figures, shrink foil pendants, coloured clothespins, flags, small glass bottles, etc!

Risotto lens
This is a nice recipe for a drizzly spring day. Also fun for kids who are not willing to eat vegetables. My son is not super hot on greetings separately, but this risotto he loves. A nice warm-up and a vegetable feast. win-win! ingredients - 400gr leeks 300gr risotto rice 1 bone pipe yoke 2 broth cubes (meat and/or garden herbs) 150 gr corn (can) 300 gr peas and carrots (canned) 400gr chipolata sausages 200ml white wine 1.2 liters (boiling) water Herbal Cheese Pepper Salt Herbal tule (thyme, bay leaf, parsley) (olive) oil Preparation - Put the broth cubes in a jug and pour over the boiling water. Let the cubes dissolve until you have a nice broth. Meet 300gr risotto rice af. I do not know if this is available in tuiltjes, but I always buy a large bag of 2kg. You can go a long way with that. Cut the onion into rings and cut the leeks into half rings. Or do nice and easy and just buy a bag pre-cut like me. You can also fry the sausages first, then you don't have to do that during the dish. Preferably use not a large round, but the short variant, which are then easier to cut with zen everything. I often use different types of mixed up: ordinary, peasant and/or merguez sausages. Also chicken sausages can, of course,. Then cut the sausages into small pieces and set aside. Find your biggest pot. You may think it's not at first sight in terms of ingredients, but don't miss out on your. Risottor list swells greatly, and once everything is there, your pot, despite its size, will be well filled. Below you can see a photo of before and after the rice has been cooked up to give you an idea. Recipe - Put oil in the jar and let it warm. Put in the pipe juin, let it fry and add the risotto rice. Stir over and watch the rice become glassy. Add the white wine and stir again. Allow to boil for a while and then gradually start adding a little broth. You know: this is a dish where you have to be constantly present — especially the first time —. Although it sometimes seems as if there's enough moisture floating at the top, it's best to stir around every minute, because before you know it you stick rice to the bottom and burn the place. Every time you notice that the broth has boiled again, add another shoot. The rice will swell more and more and more. In the meantime, put a regular pot on the fire and stew the leeks with some salt and pepper. I also always put some herbal tug on top, which is an already cut mixture of thyme, lauries and parsley. You can get these at the Colruyt. When you have added the last of the broth to the rice you can start mixing all the ingredients. Leak out the peas and carrots, as well as the corn and add it to the rice. Also the already stewed leeks can now be. If the sausages have cooled down a little too much, you can bake them again in the jar of the leeks. Then you also add this to the dish, do not be embarrassed to scoop some baking fat with, because that is also an extra seasoning. As a finish, I always add a good spoon or two herbal cheese. That makes it extra creamy. Serve a scoop or 3 in a deep plate and then you have this result.
