G45 Dollhouse Kitchen Cupboard

Here is an old dollhouse dresser (left over from when I made a few kits to give away to charity at Christmas).  Please note that the drawers etc were askew (my son helped make it when he was little.)  I will provide a few pics of how I made the pattern.. The papers were from "Time to Celebrate 8x8", "Time to Celebrate 6x6 patterns and solids","Botanical Tea (bird), and "Couture 6x6 patterns and solids).  The flowers and pearls were left over from my wedding decorations, the crystal pulls were from Queen & Co.  I used Glossy Accents on the hearts, ovals, and bird picture.  The sink was Duct Tape This is entered in Simon Says Wed. Things that fly; The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge  10"Birds of a Feather (bird in center who wouldn't want to look at that lovely picture while working at a sink?).  Really Reasonable Ribbon Flowers--I think the pearls are a trim, I hope.  Craft Hoarders Anonymous  Go Green(links below)


Sorry, I accidentally deleted the first before picture.  I made the pattern  using the pencil to find the edges (after I cut out an oval below left, and repeated till finished (I used the same technique for the top also, see the pattern to the right with the heart).
Once I had It drawn in I cut it out using my fingertip knife with a ruler with a metal edge to get a clean cut line.  Next, I used Sticker Maker and let it dry so it would remain tacky.  

After I cut the pattern I placed it on the papers and drew it on and cut it out 
with the fingertip knife.
 
I did my final cuts after putting the cut pieced on similar to the picture of the white pattern by making tiny slits (similar to clipping the fabric on a curve) to slip it in the tiny crevices after putting Tacky Glue on it.  I glued on all the cut pieces, decorated it using glue dots to hold the flowers.  I made the little picture using a sticker and putting it on the black and putting pearls around it, after it dried I used the Glossy accents on it and all the hearts and pulls.
