Here is my interpretion of the challenge:






Supplies:
cardboard
twigs-4
copper wire
packing paper
mod podge
elmer's glue
glimmer mist: fall leaves
flocking: brown, green
beads: various colors and sizes
buttons (tabbed, they are mushrooms!)
chipboard
clipart of Alice
white card stock
vintage book pages
acrylic paint: robin's egg
prima flowers (mini) & patterned paper
fiskars butterfly punch
circle punch 1”
martha stewart glitter: green
chandelier crystal
knobs-4 (feet)

Tip for re-creating this at home:
Break twigs off even at one end to glue to cardboard. Once glued and dry, wrap with copper wire to form “branches”. Paper mache this to form tree trunk and branches. (have them come together in the middle to form “roof” for your house.) Paint on, don't spray the glimmer mist....it's easier to control this way. Use buttons with a shank as mushrooms. Punch circles in patterned paper , cut circles in half, trim with scissors to form grass tufts. Decorate your forest “house” area with flocking for soil and grass; flowers, beads and glitter.....you can use mod podge to get this all to stick. (if you spray this all with a sealer once it's dry, the flocking won't come off at a touch). Decorate a chipboard girl shape for Alice. Attach her with a copper wire up through the chipboard and into the cardboard base – this way she moves around! Punch out TONS of butterflies, for lots of magic.
