I’ve long loved the little houses with winter scenes. If I had the space (and funds!) I would build a little village all animated with a skating pond and lights. In the mean time, I’ll make these little houses on my own.
I searched for a base for the house and settled on this old copy A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I’ve used a few of the pages for crafts here and there but the binding is awesome on it’s own. Now I can move it around easily. I like that!
I added one of those little battery operated tea lights inside the house. Because I used standard patterned paper light glows through the entire house. I placed tissue paper behind the windows for a more finished look but you can just leave it plain or try some patterned paper. The trims around the windows are just cut free hand and I used a door from another house I bought. That’s a cotton ball coming out of the chimney.
Here’s the digital file all zipped in eps, svg, png, and dxf. If you want to print and cut, use the png file.
