Introducing Tiny Town Series...

Welcome to Day 3 of the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Celebration.  Today we are sharing a new die set called Tiny Town.  When I was little, my dad used to take us to a place called Tiny Town in Colorado.  It was a fun little park full of miniature houses and buildings and so when I saw the name of this new die set, it made my day!

One of my favorite decor items in my house, is a tray.  I have several trays around my house, decorated with fun little odds and ends.  I new when I saw the gorgeous little church, it would work so well on my tray.


The fun thing about this church, is that I can keep it VERY CAS and white and it still looks beautiful.  


Before I folded each piece of the church, I scored each score line so they would stay nice and clean.  Next, I layered the inside with vellum so the candle underneath would really show through.  


I cut the flaps off the bottom of the church, so I could easily place my little battery powered tea light. 


The glow of the tea light through the church windows is so pretty...


I know there will be so much more to see today and I can't wait to see all the different uses for this fun little tiny town!

Stop over to Nichole's blog to see all about this die set, plus a list of links for the rest of the Design Team.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
