Liberty Village with Petaloo and Canvas Corp

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a very festive and fun holiday décor creation using the fabulous DIY Flowers and Canvas Corp patterned papers.  I love to make projects in red, white, and blue since they can be displayed for all the summer holidays!!!

Liberty Village 1I’m calling this Liberty Village. A row of tiny houses all decked out in patriotic colors and fun trims.  It’ll be a great addition to my seasonal décor. My hubby is born on the 4th of July so we really go all in for this great holiday! And we get cake…so that’s a win win : )Liberty Village 2These little houses are only about 3 inches square ( before the roof.)  I was able to pack a lot of detail in a small space.Liberty Village 3All lined up they are the perfect size for a shelf. From this angle you can see how the tiny chimneys fit perfectly on the roof peak. I had to do math shudder.Liberty Village 4For this center house I added a few glittery stars on spingy wires nestled into the kraft packaging in the chimney. To finish the tops of the chimneys I added a small length of white lace wrapped around and stapled in place with a tiny staple. Coordinating lace on the bottom of the house is layered over burlap trim. Liberty Village 5This roof peak is all decked out with the DIY Flowers, Red Jeweled Flowers,  glittery branches and ribbon trim.  I sprayed the DIY Flowers with Fireworks Spray to match the chevron stripe in the paper. Tinsel trim on the underside of the roof makes it extra festive

Liberty Village 6Surprise!!! The roofs come off.  From this angle you can see I’ve tucked in another star clipped in with an itty bitty red clothespin.

Liberty Village 7Simply untie the red cord and the little house opens right up to reveal a vintagy image and 3 picture mats for displaying favorite summer pictures.Liberty Village 8I just love how the shades of red, white, and blue are all vintagy and not super bright.Liberty Village 9Each little house has a different image….but the same picture mats.Liberty Village 10

It will be fun to fill up these little houses with our pictures and memories. And we can enjoy them year after year when we decorate for the holiday.
