Christmas Village

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.

Happy Holidays!
