If you have done any holiday shopping yet, you might have noticed that miniature holiday houses are making appearances everywhere!  Whether it be as an ornament, a gift tag or mantel decor, they are popping up everywhere.  We have provided you with a very simple printable template below so you can create your own holiday house.  Feel free to alter it in any way: add windows or doors, additions, glitter, trees, garland, mica flakes, artificial snow, woodland animals or whatever else you can dresm up!  You can even display your house in a unique way such as on a cake stand, nestled in a wreath or in a glass dome!  We are looking forward to all of your amazing house creations!
Here's my take on the challenge:
and here's a look at the other side.  It was fun to make my own little paper house and I may just make a whole city after this little challenge!!  It was a ton of fun to create in a hurry!  I need to take some time and really have a ball with this challenge!!
Supplies used:
Papertrey Ink Home Made Stamps
Papertrey Ink Holly Jolly Die
Papertrey Ink Felt
Echo Park Season's Greetings Papers

Sweet holiday confection! Love the red rose and striking window treatments. I think we should all meet at your house and set up an assembly line of mini houses! (hee hee!)

Love this house and you managed to find something Papertrey to use on it. I thought about using the window from "Home Made" set (there weren't a lot of choices, were there?), and I love how you used it to make the door. VERY clever!

The trimmings of the pom-pom edging (don't you wish they made that in a scale for our houses?), and the rose with the holly, are wonderful. Shhhh...but your house is one of my favorites.

Thank you for sharing and taking the time to leave a lovely comment on my blog. Wishing you a warm and happy Thanksgiving.
