As much as I enjoy making dollhouse furniture from kits or patterns, sometimes you just need a nice, pre-made piece. I picked up a 1:12 scale unfinished hutch along with some other bits and bobs from Alpha Stamps, and threw together a little love-themed project.
I painted the hutch and a wooden Valentine banner, then glued the banner along the top. Most of the vintage valentine cards, bags, and boxes were cut and assembled from one collage sheet. The little cards look cute hanging from the lace border!
Some of the jars were colored with a red Sharpie marker, but several were simply filled with polymer clay pieces before being chucked on a shelf.
There’s an itty bitty metal jewelry box that I painted forever ago, a “peanut butter jar” with the colored lid and heart, tiny cakes, baby food jars filled with microbeads, a heart-shaped cookie cutter, and the cutest vintage kitty valentine hiding in the back. So fun!
One of the best things about this particular piece: opening doors! Who doesn’t love more space to put junk?
