Company Spotlight on My Mind's Eye by Melissa Phillips

Christmas Greetings Miniature House Set by Melissa Phillips


1.  Use wood scraps to create houses by trimming the top of each at angles.
2.  Paint each house with off-white acrylic paint and sand the edges to distress.
3.  Trace each house onto patterned paper.  Cut inside each tracing line so that the paper fits inside the body of each house, leaving the distressed edge showing around each.
4.  Choose coordinating paper for the body of each house and the roof and repeat step 3 until each house is covered.
5.  Attach trim along the seam between the body of the house and the roof.
6.  Cut strips of coordinating paper to fit sides of houses and roof, or use border stickers.
7.  Embellish the front of each house with dimensional stickers, or add dimension to flat stickers by using dimensional adhesive.
8.  Embellish the top of each house with buttons, snowflake trim, gems, star stickers, etc.
9.  Add Christmas Red Ice Stickles to add shine and shimmer to the berries, candy cane, etc.
