Here’s something that is special…
My love at Christmas time is seeing those mini villages… Little lit up houses set in old fashioned times. I’ve always wanted a hole village and a huge display… But the prices have been high on these things and the place to put them hasn’t been available to me….
Now I have the space… And I finally think I have the skill to make a village. but the best thing about it all is that I can show you how to make one for yourself! At a fraction of the cost of those expensive little houses!
All you need per house is:
A paper trimmer with scoring blade or a scoring tool
Two sheets of double sided patterned card stock (I used KaiserCraft twig and berry collection)
One sheet of printer sized white card stock
Fiskars fine tip scissors
Fiskars fingertip Craft knife
Clear plastic packaging or acetate or velumn
Clear glitter glue
Flower soft in white or ivory
Fiskars Self healing cutting mat
White glue – elmers or flower soft glue
Acrylic paints and a black marker pen – for the stained glass window
Part 1: cutting out the building base and making the windows
Part 2: making the chimney/bell tower and final finishing touches
Thanks so much for watching…
I hope to make a general store too.. But that is time permitting.
Any building can be made, really, with just the above instructions and templates with a little bit of tweaking here and there for each different building.
All the best and hope your Christmas decorating wishes come true.
