Well, this is not my first project with Tim's Paper Village. Last year I made many different designs. Like the one with pastel colours, or the other one with Distress colours, but I also made houses with kraft colours.
But this time I wanted to try the so-called Putz houses, the completely glitter covered paper houses. So I made these:
And now I will try to write an easy-to-follow tutorial for you and for me because I always use my earlier tutorials. I do sometimes forget how I did something, what technique I used before.
First, I cut out the houses from 300 gsm watercolour paper with Sizzix Thinlits Paper Village die. I cut out 8 pieces from the bigger house (for making 4 house) and 8 from the smaller one. Then I took my new Thinlits Village Collection die set and chose the smallest window to cut out the windows.
The door is part of the Paper Village set but as it is a hinged door I had to cut off the door from the "hinge".
Then I glued the doors on the houses.
When the houses were dry, I put vellum behind the windows. I cut out little pieces and glued them with the same Schminke Fluid Medium. I applied the fluid medium with a brush behind the windows.
I cut out the roofs and then poked a hole in the middle of them.
Then I threaded a silver string through the hole and tied a knot at the end.
Thank you for stopping by!!! Happy crafting!!!
