Paper Winter Village

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

We wanted to do something different this year with our Christmas decorations. We decided to make a go at making a paper village. I always admired them, but did not want to store them. This seems to work for us. We made them and then gave them all away. Some to the kid's teachers, some to the ladies I VT, and the last couple went to some neighbors. I made an insert box for each of them and filled them with candy. I don't think we will do them every year. They are a lot of work, but I enjoyed making them and was pleased with how they turned out. The windows are mostly done with glitter. I learned a cool technique for glitter. (using packing tape and then sprinkle with glitter. It gives a more even look than glue does (unless your get a finger print on it.)
