Yay! Holy cow I made a an animated photo! I just really wanted to show the before and after of my adorable little paper houses! No template necessary just watch my video tutorial and I will show you how it's done! The Star of these little houses though is my Frosted Window Technique using my Xyron 5 Inch Creative Station! Seriously I actually impressed myself with one lol! So here is a little home tour of my houses I made with American Crafts- Bundeled UP and Peppermint Express Collections.
Here are all 4 sides of House 1 Made with American Crafts Crate Paper Bundled Up Collection

I used a Petaloo Pointsetta, made some icicles with some hot glue and added a few mirror snowflakes from Michaels. The Chevron Straws are from Queen & Co. and I got them at Hobby Lobby

The rooftop glitter is a mix of Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter and Clearsnap Winters Frost

Snowflake and wood fence from Michaels
The Next House I made with American Crafts Peppermint Express

All you need is two sheets of card stock and one sheet of American Crafts Peppermint Express Remarks Stickers! Aren't they cute?

Just used some good ole fabric store trim

Now here is another one from Bundled Up. I love Pink for Christmas. I gave this one a little more of a vintage feel by Adding vintage book paper for the roof. I also shortened this one by chopping off 2 inches. This house pattern is easy-as long as you keep it 8.5 inches wide- you can really make it from 6 inches for a smaller house to 10 inches for a high rise.

I added some Prima Pebbles to each side and used the Bundled Up Standouts and Layered Stickers too.

So I wanted to give you a close up of the frosted windows. Too cool right?? Watch my Vid at the end and I show you how to do it!

I love how with just a little turn, you can create a whole new look!

So what are you waiting for! lets make a Village!



  1. Adorable!!! Can't you see a whole village on your mantle?

  3. You are quite possibly the most delightfully whimsical designer of all time. I'm always thrilled with your always offer up fresh and unexpected ideas. Thanks, Denise...for all you do! Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I think these would be so cute as gift boxes, just make a bottom flap. Voila, two gifts in one. Can't you just see a whole village in a lined basket with presents peeking through the little frosted windows. Definitely on my to-do list now. Thanks so much. Love my Xyron!
