A little paper holiday scene for the season.

A cozy winter cottage in the woods, a perfect place to spend a warm night with loved ones.

There's a little lake by the trees for skating, if it's frozen over enough...

...and a fireplace to warm you up again afterwards.

There's a tiny decorated tree inside.

With a quarter for size comparison.
The roof is about 1 7/8" high.

I assembled this the way I usually do my 3-D paper art, with one continuous piece of cardstock, no adhesives, and using cutting and folding only.

Happy Holidays to one and all ♥

happy holidays!!  I was impressed before the coin, then realized how small it was.  Good work!!

Thank you!

I didn't necessarily set out to make it that tiny, but the whole thing (before folding) had to fit on one 8.5" x 11" cardstock sheet.

That is amazing! And only one sheet of paper, judiciously cut? I am wowed.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

I was doing my usual lunch time lurking and was admiring your post, and thinking "I wonder if I could do that?" THEN I saw that your house is the SIZE OF A QUARTER!! AND you used only one sheet of card stock!!?? Amazing! You must have teensy little fingers or a ton of manual dexterity

Thanks Tropic_Rose and zaluly!

Yeah, I cut it out as all one piece before folding it, and due to the size I had to use pins to help me assemble it. A couple of things didn't work as expected so I had to quickly improvise another way to do them...once I've made a cut there's no undoing it!
