Sweets Shop Magnet

Happy Saturday, everyone. I'm here to share one of my favorite quick projects - a sweets shop magnet made from a GSL Mini House Shadowbox 2.
The house shadowbox comes together easily from just six pieces. I glued the sides and floor to the back wall with tacky glue and set aside the two roof pieces for later.
After priming the walls, ceiling and front edges of the house with gesso, I selected a pink floral paper from BoBunny's Sweet Moments collection for the back wall of the shop and a white woodgrain paper from ms. sparkle & co. for the floor.
I printed the word 'sweets' on chipboard, chose a few beads to use as table legs and painted a scrap of chipboard white to serve as a table top.  The walls and ceiling of the shop were painted white.
Making the candy jars was a lot of fun. I filled tiny glass jars with a combination of pink and silver microbeads, heart shaped nail decorations and a few sweet polymer cane slices. The jar lids were fashioned from metal beads and pearl straight pins glued together. Once the glue was dry, I snipped off the pin shanks.
So cute!
Two magnets were attached to the back of the little shop then the roof was finished off with some pink woodgrain stickers from 7Gypsies Attic Junque Pack.
Thanks for stopping by!
