Pretty Little Cabanas

These sweet mini houses just cried out to be decorated with some pretty papers and butterflies. They were made from the GSL Cabana Row Minis. Let me walk you through how they were made.
The papers I used were from both the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea line and the Paper Studio Pretty Petals line. Before assembly, I used the flat cabana as a template for cutting my papers. That made decorating them super easy.
The houses easily fold together with the pre-scored lines. I assembled them using tacky glue and held them together with craft clips while the glue was drying.
Each cabana received a piece of ribbon or trim around the roofline to conceal where the two different papers meet.
The roof sections were painted on one side and papered on the other. Those were then glued into place using rubber bands to hold them while the glue dried. Each cabana received an additional scrap of trim around their base. 
On the front of each cabana I added a small butterfly from the GSL Butterflies and Dragonflies set. Those were painted in a cream colored acrylic paint.
Decorating was fun! I got out my supply of pearls, resin flowers, embellishments and even more trim and played around with the lot until I was happy with the result.
The only thing left was to glue a bit of Sweet Pea Flower Soft sprinkles along their rooflines. What an adorable little neighborhood they make. Thanks for stopping by!
