From the blogger: "You can make only a few of these houses to create a small village or even craft 24 houses for a really adorable Advent calendar that not only serves a purpose, but looks great as a holiday decoration, as well. Each roof can be removed and a tea light or a small gift can be placed inside the house. A step-by-step illustrated tutorial and a template for this craft are included so you can get started right away once you have your supplies together. Note: This would be a great group project. Each person can make one or more houses and a village is then quickly finished."

Estimated Cost$11-$20

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These are really cute. I am not sure I can get the corrugated cardboard here, but maybe Bristol board would work for it. These would be cute set up on some fiberfill to look like snow, with led Christmas lights set inside each one to look like the lights are on inside.

Those are neat, but finding colored cardboard and black card stock would be hard to find here. I'm not sure what could be substituted, other than painting plain cardboard and maybe using school folders, since they come in black? I like the houses, but just don't know about finding the materials.

Hello! Corrugated cardboard is very common where I live but if you cannot get it, any colored cardstock would work. Good sorted craft stores should have packs of colored cardstock in many colors and internet shops carry colored corrutated cardboard as well as colored cardstock. It should not be too thick (harder to fold) nor too thin (too fragile). Also heavier quality scrapbook paper works fine. I really like your idea about painting plain cardboard! )

Thanks for your reply! I happened to come across it following the links in the newsletter. I did find the cardstock, thanks, and decided to try paintint the cardboard and it works very well - better than I thought it would. If anyone is interested, I just used interior paint left over from painting my office.
