My Village Shops are a brand new series of projects for 2016. Each shop has been created with a shoe box or photo storage box, medium weight chipboard and printed papers. You will find a variety of options for creating each shop as well as interior projects, and I hope to show you some challenging ways of creating exteriors as we move along in the series.

You can find additional FREE tutorials for finishing your shop on my blog as well as tutorial products for furniture in my shop.
It was my thinking that while some might create all the shops in the series, others might only create one or a few and some might want to make their shop a tea shop while other might want different themes for their shop. I decided this would be the most economical and easiest way for everyone to be able to do what they wanted.
Third preview shows the shop when finished with all of the additional furniture and accessories tutorials. These are not included with this “shop only” tutorial.
The first project in the series is “Teri’s Tea Shoppe”. With a vintage charm about it, the shop sits on a cobblestone base and measures 13-1/2″ high by 8″ wide and with the base is 11-1/2″ deep. The house alone is about 8″ by 12″ by 5″ and is very close to 1:24 (half scale) in miniature scale. Half scale furniture and accessories would fit in it just fine.
The shop is connected to the base with a removable roof and front wall for access to the inside. You’ll find the detailed step-by-step PDF file tutorial easy to follow with tons of photos for visual aid. The tutorial also includes various ideas and options for creating your own shoppe and if you follow this blog category, you’ll be able to see the furnishings, how I’ve added inexpensive lighting to the shoppe and various accessories, as I add them, all the way to the final item.
