I found a great set of paper from docrafts called 12 days of Christmas, and decided
it would look great as a row of 12 chunky houses - one for each day Smiley

I've been working on and of on this project the last week - and I can't get that song
out of my head anymore! (Gonna have to sing it with the kids at work Smiley )
The largest house is around 15 cm and the smallest one meassures around 10 cm.
They are threaded together with some ribbon, and fold together accordion style
for storage.

A few close-ups. Because... well. I like 'em!

Now I just have to get the rest of the Christmas stuff out of those boxes in the cellar! The houses look a little
lonely all on their own ..

...and as a bonus!

There was even enough paper left for 20+ Christmas cards!

How totally cute! And I love that song, too. Now you have it spinning in my brain.
I also like the faaalaaalaaa song. To be jolly.  Grin I think that one is Deck the Halls.
So there, you have something new to annoy your brain with.


I like your little Christmas village, and very cute cards. Happy decorating!

They are gorgeous.  Now I want to make them into little quilted houses using my fabric stash
