Sisters Are Different Flowers From the Same Garden...what a fabulous sentiment and perfect paper collection in creating my house tray project with.
I created my house tray with the thought of giving it to a dear friend that I feel is like my a true sister to me. I love her to the moon and beyond.

Begin by first paint the frame with black paint; dry. Repeat with Weathered Wood; dry. Repeat one last time with Crackle Paste to achieve the crackle look you want on the tray house. Dry. Do a wash of Patina Green; when dry whip on Antiquing Cream. Add paper to the back piece of the house tray chipboard. Add prepared painted front piece to paper background.

Fussy cut images from Penny's Paper Dolls Family Collection.
Add some of the images to the inside windows with pop dots.

Add metal door pull filled with flowers to top window opening.

Add metal key to inside of flower container along with a small twine bow.

Continue adding fussy cut images.

Add metal wreath to top of sentiment; add to window.

Add fussy cut buggy to front of house tray along with metal caps.

Finish the front with gemstones and a few more of the metals.

“I remember as a little girl cutting clothes and accessories from catalogs that arrived in the mail. My day would be made up of gluing them to my dolls that I would draw on scrap paper. I could play all day with them…pretending to be here or there and doing this or that with them What fun memories that came back when I received Graphic 45 Penny’s Paper Dolls Family Collection in the mail. I couldn’t wait to start cutting up my paper dolls and begin creating with them. I know that everyone will have a fabulous time creating projects with this fabulous collection and having wonderful memories along the way.” Hugs Pam
