A Teapot shop - Part 2

Hello dear readers,

You've seen the merchandise in the shop's window and now I want to show you how it looks inside before the front cover.

Four square wooden pieces are glued to the top part corners.  Two large craft sticks are cut and glued on top of them to prevent the cover from caving in.

The card paper cover.

A piece of  clear acetate, cut to size, is glued to the undersides of the opening in the card cover.
The whole piece is glued to the box.

Material used for the false windows.

A plastic fruit basket.  The cut out side will make two windows.

Here you can see the windows, each one is framed with 4 matchsticks and painted with green acrylic paint.  I glued on pieces of clear acetate underneath.  You can see here how I make the inside of the windows using narrow pieces of lace and a magazine cut out.  The 1/4" square dowel is for the windowsill.

Assembled and ready for the cover.

Now comes the fun part of decorating the cover with ceramic stones.  I still have to make a roof,
a shop sign, a "lamp" and a flat stand for the shop so it can  either hang on a wall or stand up. I'll  try to finish the project this weekend and post the third and last part early next week.

I wish you all a wonderful summer weekend and blessings.
