This week the Softpencil DT got to work with another cute set called the House Collection Set 2, which can be found in the Softpencil Etsy Shop. I wanted to do something really fun with the set so I came up with this special little treat box (all pictures can be clicked to enlarge):
I printed 2 of everything - house, tree, bunny and girl, and I also paper pieced the houses and tree tops. For the roofs, I punched 3/4" circles from patterned paper to go over the circular pattern of the images. I rounded each circle and popped them up with scrap cardstock for dimension.
Here's a straight-on shot of the front:
The back is exactly the same except the roof color is slightly different. You can see that I cut out the windows and glued plain cardstock behind them. I also used a 1/8" hole punch for the little pink flowers, and dotted each with a pink pen. Lastly, I sewed seed beeds over the little dots in the design for interest. The girl was colored with Copics, cut out and mounted with foam tape.
Here's what the sides look like:
Our Design Element this week was flowers, which was easy since there were flowers already in the design of the tree! I used a Fiskars hand punch for the little flowers and then sewed seed beads to the center of each flower and also over each dot in the design. The grass was cut from extra houses that I printed. The bunny was colored just a bit, cut out and popped up with little bits of cardstock.
I made up the box design based on the sizes of the house fronts and the trees. I hope you like it and TFL!
