Happy Saturday everyone and welcome back to the blog! For the last couple months I’ve been making paper houses to display as decoration for the holidays. I’ve created a Surf Shack, Victorian Manor, Haunted House and Gingerbread house, all very different with various techniques and treatments for you to try.
I worked with the Tim Holtz Bell Tower die to create a clean and simple church to add to village. I wanted to keep it pristine looking so I added soft colored printed papers from the Prima Salvage collection to create a vintage look without being too grungy.
I added thin strips of paper to the sides of the structure to look like shiplap and was pleasantly surprised to see how it looked once I put a battery votive inside. The spaces between the strips allowed the light to glow through.
I have filmed the entire process of how to create my project, you can view the video below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
