"FASHION"- A VILLAGE CLOTHING SHOP





“FASHION”
A LITTLE VILLAGE DRESS SHOP

“FASHION” is the 3rd structure in my series of tiny printie, cut & glue, paper buildings. As with the others, it can be used as a stand-alone piece, showcased under a dome and such, or it can become a toy in a dollhouse toy store or child’s room, etc.  You may decide to transform it into a glitter building as was done for the Church in a previous post here.
 As seen, the shop has been glued to a 1-7/16” sq. matboard base topped with gray paper.  The edges of the base are covered with gray bunka cording http://secondchildhoodminiatures.com/supplies.html , starting and stopping at center back.  After the shop has been glued in place, both sides of it have a low planting (a green pipe cleaner -these are narrower than the usual chenille stems- painted with green acrylic paint to cover any exposed wire.  When the paint has dried the “fur” of the stem is trimmed almost to the wire.  Two pieces the width of the sides of the building are cut and glued to the base, snugged to the building.  For interest, the tiniest of red “berries”, sifted from Woodland Scenics’ Fruit are glued on the greenery, here and there (these are three bags of the tiniest of no-hole bead, one each of red, orange and white.  They have many uses mini-wise, think maraschino cherries, holly berries, & so on)

A sign out front (printie) tells us “Fashions” is having a sale and our village ladies have turned out to shop for good bargains.  (Window Shoppers & Pedestrians from Woodland Scenics N Scale www.wow.com/Woodland+Scenics .)  



INSTRUCTIONS:
Using the PDF file attached, print out the building on matte presentation paper using your printer’s best settings.
Cut out the building; score on tabs and bottom/sides lines.  Fold side tabs to inside at 45 degree angle to sides.  Glue front and back to sides on tabs. 
Fold in roof tabs at 45 degrees.  Cut out roof, score across center both ways.  Glue in half with lined section to top.  Use a watercolor pencil in a shade to match roof color to cover the white edges.  Fold across center and glue to building’s top tabs, centered all the way around with folded edge facing front.
Glue the four windows and the door to a scrap piece of the same paper.  When glue has set cut them out.  Use watercolor pencil to cover the raw edges.  Glue in place, evenly, over the matching ones on the building.
Glue the FASHION sign onto a double thickness of a scrap of the same paper.  When glue has set cut out and glue evenly over the sign on the building. 
Score across the canopies/awnings just above the scallops.  Cut out and fold the scallop edges down.  Glue the back edges to the top edges of the three display windows at a very slight downward angle (so the rain will roll off, lol).
Cut out the three door steps & glue them stacked together.  Glue the straight edge to the building, just under the door.  You may choose to stagger the steps by cutting two back a bit so the step is not too high.
I like to use an acid free, blue glue stick for adhering paper on paper, especially with tiny pieces.  It is more forgiving/moveable than craft glue.  And the disappearing color lets me know that I have the glue where I want it.  I use Crafter’s Pick The Ultimate for everything else here, including the canopies.  And again, I can’t recommend these high enough, Dr. Slick Razor Scissors      http://www.amazon.com/Dr-Slick-Razor-Scissors                  I really love them, especially for cutting tiny bits and pieces.

 Have fun, and hurry because it is only a “ONE DAY SALE”!
