christmas village gift boxes​

Adorable Christmas village in three sizes that can also be used as gift boxes for the holidays to be made on a Cricut machine by Brittany Jepsen​.
Step 1

Click here for the large house design in Cricut® Design Space™. For the medium house, click here and for the click here for the small house.

Step 2

Adhere your 12" x 24” [30.5 cm x 30.5 cm] craft paper onto a 12" x 24” [30.5 cm x 60 cm] standard grip mat.

Step 3

Insert the scoring stylus into the clamp A next to the fine cut blade (in clamp B).​

Step 4

Insert your mat into the machine as indicated and press "go".​
TIP: Before selecting “Go” be sure to choose the material from which you are cutting.

Step 5

Remove the mat as prompted.​

Step 6

Use your weeder tool to remove and scrape off the windows and all of the extra pieces that we don’t need.

Step 7

Fold all your scored lines.
TIP: As you do this, you’ll start seeing the house shape come to life.

Step 8

Use hot glue to attach the bottom pieces to create the base of your house and allow the village house to stand up right.

Step 9

To add contrasting windows, lightly measure the outside of the house with a pencil, cut out a piece of paper. Attach it to the inside of your windows with a glue stick.​

Step 10

Punch a hole at the top and insert a ribbon. Tie a knot or bow to close the top.

Step 11

Repeat for additional house gift boxes.
TIP: You can use the same template for the entire village or create different sized houses for a unique look. Have fun with this!
