Design Team Member Kristin Batsel has created the most adorable little house you’d ever want to see: Holly Jolly Christmas House!
Kristin used the new House Ornament, and lots of the coordinating add-ons (like window trims, dormers, and shingles) — and that house is also in the new Chipboard House Ornament Kit, too (more info on that below).
I love the way Kristin’s little house turned out! So cheery and inviting. Good thing she provided a tutorial, too! For things like how to apply that faux snow while leaving room to glue down all your little items (like the peppermint stepping stones).
And check out the middle photo in the bottom row: The house lights up! Kristin shows how she used tissue paper to cover the inside of the house “walls” to help diffuse the light from the tea light.
“This little house stands only about 3″ tall, not counting the base. It was made from a kit, and if you read on through to the bottom of my post, I’ll talk about how it was put together. Meanwhile, here are some more photos. The tiny family who lives here sure did a good job of decorating the tallest tree! It’s easy to attach those beads; I just dipped them in some tacky glue and stuck them into the branches.
“You can totally fence your house in, or you can use an xacto knife to cut a little gate. I think it looks nice to have an open gate with the pathway leading to the front door.”
Chipboard House Ornament Kit
The houses are 2-3/4″ tall, and 2-1/2″ square at the base. Includes 2 holes in the roof for hanging, but you can just paper over the holes if not needed (like if you decide to make a little house on a platform to sit on your fireplace mantel).
Next, the new Christmas Delivery 6×6 Paper Pad! Plaid is SO in this season! I love the rustic/classic Christmas colors in this set (and including black really sets off the green and red). A mix of teeny tiny to just “small” print sizes, too. The kit includes ONE sheet each of all 12 double-sided designs.
There are also 2 collage sheets:
- New Tiny House Trims Collage Sheet. Tons of festive doors and windows, sized for the House Ornament (which makes the doors about 1″ tall). Also includes a couple styles of brick pattern, large enough to cover the chimney from the House Ornament Chimney & Dormers set. And… snowmen? A bunch of snowmen and women showed up, too!
- Santa is Outside Collage Sheet. Includes some images of Santa ready to come down the chimney (and some mini versions sized for the chimney on the Glitter House Collage Sheet). Actually, all the images have mini versions sized for Glitter Houses or 3D House Ornaments or these new House Ornaments.
More info, photos and artwork are on the Chipboard House Ornament Kit page.
