Colourful glitter house decoration - Paper Village by Tim Holtz

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.

After I assembled the houses I coloured them with DecoArt paints. I put two layers on them.

Then I cut out the window frames. For this I chose the smallest window frames from the Village Collection set. The little heart I always put on my houses is in the Valentine Side-Order set.

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.

Then I covered the houses with Schmincke Fluid Medium and sprinkled with Clear Rock Candy glitters.

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.

Here you can see that I glued the roofs on the houses.

Now it was time to glitter the roofs. For this, I used the same medium and the same glitter. I glued a small base under the houses and I also covered with glitter the edges of the base.

Thank you for stopping by!!! Happy crafting!!!
