I'm so happy that you stopped by my blog today because I'm super excited to share this little project with you.
I love the holidays! And Christmas has to be one of my favourites times because I love being with my family.
I created my project for Xyron's 30 Days of Holiday Project.
First of all, I wanted to create something unique and fun that would fit somewhere in my home this holiday season.
So when I came across THIS Silhouette file and THIS one I know right away that I wanted to create these.
A darling mini Winter Village.
The buildings are approx. 2 1/2" wide and 3 1/2" tall.
I began by cutting out all of the pieces to form the little village from some of the "Magical"collection of Studio Calico patterned papers. I cut the roofs & trees from the Crafter's Companion 6x6 Snow White Pearl cardstock which had a bit of a glimmer to it already. It's very pretty.
1. I took the 3 white roofs and Crafter's Companion 6x6 Snowflake Embossalicious Embossing folder and embossed the roofs.
2. I then ran them through the Xyron 5" Creative Station (with the snowflake design facing UP).
3. I didn't peel the cardstock off yet but rather trimmed around the edges. I then placed it through the Xyron 5" Creative Station again this time with the snowflake design on the BOTTOM.
I then peeled off the top sheet (from the snowflake design) and sprinkled some Stampendous Multi Crystal glitter overtop.
tip: I rubbed the glitter in with my finger to make it sure it was down securely and I won't find a whole heap of glitter around my home later on!
I followed the same steps (#1- 3) for the white trees by running them through the machine 2 times and applying the glitter. (I ended up adding glitter to both side of the trees because when they are folded you will see both sides of the cardstock)
I then put a piece of 3/16" High Tack Adhesive Dots on the backside (down the center) of the tree. I then adhered the matching tree overtop and folded the edges along the perforated marks.
I repeated this with the 2 other trees.
I used the 1/4" High Tack Double-Sided Tape to adhere the building together.
I then peeled off the white layer from each roof and adhere them to the buildings.
And there you have it!
