Hi! Suzz here.
How about a Christmas Village you can use for Place Settings, Gift Card Holders or just adorable Candy Treats?
I started with two sets of the Basically Bare – Happy Little Houses:
and the Mixed Media Card Set:
which I assemble together using the Paperie Binderie:
which looked like this:
All of these items are available in the Basically Bare Retail Shop.
I used the die cuts as templates to cut out different pattern papers to decorate the houses. I attached the papers to the house and sponged with a touch of white paint. I cut sides from the mixed media cards as well as my bases to my houses. I used hot glue to attach the houses to the base.
I added hot glue mixed with crystal glitter to the base. I added embossing paste for snow on the roof and door frames. I sprinkled that with glitter as well to give it a shimmer.
I had previously misted tissue paper with snowflakes and used that for stuffing in the center of the gift box.
Now I have four gift card holders and candy treat containers for last-minute gifts. These easily could be hung on the tree as well with a few hole punches in the roof and some glittery twine.
