I chose all white because I’m a purist when it comes to colors for my Christmas decor. Plus, it allows me to keep it up as a “winter” village for a little longer than just the holiday season. I sized the buildings so the largest side was 11.5 inches. Once you have sized as you wish, send to cut. As with previous scoring wheel posts, the software will prompt you when to use the scoring wheel and when to switch to the fine point blade.
Fold along the scoring lines and then glue sides together with hot glue gun. I did not use parts of the church design because I wanted it to look simple.
Add the roof and steep last and glue into place. I have found some other 3D designs to be difficult to work with in Design Space. These were super easy to figure out.
Repeat the process for the other buildings.
The best part of this design? They make adorable luminaries! Just add LED tea lights to enjoy in the evening too!
How sweet is that?! I love how it glows. This will look adorable next to my Christmas tree!
You could even add some of these Plaid Wrapped Christmas Trees to your village scene!
