Vintage Village

Well, I admit with the last minute project thrown in this week and Thanksgiving it took me a little longer than expected to get this kit done and ready to go but I hope it's worth the wait.

  The Vintage Village consists of 7 structures, the smallest being only 2” tall and the largest, the church, 7 1/2" tall.  Three structures have window cutouts that have been made into shadowboxes to view little children from the Victorian era.  Each house is covered with vintage music and book paper and then embellished.  A bottle full of vintage mix glitter adds to the charm of the vintage look.  There is also bag of mica flakes just in case you want to add a bit of snow to the roof line or the trees.  The Village kit houses come in a flat pack as shown below.  The houses are very easy to put together once you understand the simple pattern and could easily be completed in a day.  The kit comes nicely packaged and could even be given as a gift.
The kit consists of:
7 tiny chipboard buildings (flat pack)
vintage music and book paper
ephemera pictures of children
bottle of vintage mix glitter
all embellishments and trims needed
6 bottle brush trees (4 1/2”, 3 1/2” and 2 1/2”)
bag of mica flakes
2 foam brushes
access to online written instructions and photos
you can choose to leave the trees plain or add a bit of glitter or mica flakes
the church has a tiny bell in the steeple
