The Half Scale Buttercup Cottage Dollhouse Day 4

Today I finished putting on all of the trim on the dollhouse.

Notice that I did not install the acetate windows or the roof trim. Both would make the gingerbread dollhouse look too much like a dollhouse, which is not the look I want.

I made paper templates of all of the window openings and covered them with a stiff cardboard instead. I have not seen a gingerbread dollhouse with actual openings in the walls so I didn't want this one to have any either.

It would have been nice if I would have been able to leave the punch out pieces for the window and door openings in place, saving me the trouble of having to cover them later, but unforutnately this kit does not work that way. A lot of windows did not have punch outs for the openings, they were already open. Others had parts on their window opening punch outs, which I needed, making them useless. So I had to cover them all later.

For the door and bay window, I just cut out a piece of cardboard that was large enough to cover the whole wall from the inside.

It doesn't have to be a perfect fit. You can make it as close to perfect as possible because the texture will hide any imperfections around the cardboard edges.

Once the dollhouse has the exterior texture, these punch outs will not be visible but rather look like they are put of the gingerbread and I will be able to decorate the windows with "icing".

I finally decided to leave the gingerbread dollhouse open backed. I have so many foamies that I'm pretty sure I will be able to decorate the interior as cute as the exterior so it will be worth the look inside.

Some of the trim parts have to be handled with tweezers because they are so small. Also, you might want to add a metal tip to your glue bottle if you want to have more control of how much glue comes out. I myself, didn't feel a need for it so I didn't use one but it's an option.

I have to let the entire dollhouse dry and then I will be able to apply the texture to it, inside and out.
