A little village

Hello dear crafters!

Can you feel the warmth of the Christmas spirit in the air? I hope you are enjoying this magical time of the year!

Today I would like to share with you my little village! Since we are in the midst of the holiday season I want to inspire you with this project that was created using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies from the 2016 Holiday Catalog. I have a tutorial on how to make these adorable houses posted on 08/28/16.

For this project I used a piece of cardboard for the base (I used the back cover of one of my DSP) I hot glued 2 different size boxes to the base, then I added a battery operated light string and then I added a snow blanket on top (both purchased at my local craft store) The final touch of course was adding the little houses to make my village, I secure them to the snow blanket with hot glue.

I hope you enjoy this project and you give it a try.
