Greetings to all…

It’s a new month and time for a new project…another Dolly Toy Company inspired “printie”…

I’m not going to go into the details about the construction and applying the printed graphics since these have been covered in detail in previous posts…go here to see a previous Dolly "printie" project...
https://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2235

However,…stay tuned for more about the chimney, roof covering and additional updates…

Howard…

UPDATE...4/2/2024...

The dimensions of the chimney, fold lines and roof cap are shown below...the roof is the same as the pink printie that is detailed in the link in the post that started this purple printie topic..a piece of textured silver scrapbooking paper...it is wrapped over the cardboard roof and randomly highlighted with clear glitter...

I still have plans for a printed stone church to complete this series of Dolly Toy Company inspired houses...stay tuned...

Howard...

Very sharp, Howard. The "printie" is a variation I am generally unfamiliar with. Your graphics are well done, reminiscent of the lithography used on many tin toys of the pre- and post-war eras. Very cool.

I do recall seeing actual homes that featured shutters with a small cut-out on the upper wood panel. They were usually in the shape of oak leaves, squirrels, acorns, or at least those are the ones I remember. A neat detail on your "printie".
