Step 1: Your graphics

Import the “Christmas Village” file consisting of 6 tabs into your regular graphics software. Each tab will form a different part of your village: houses, roofs and trees. We have used white paper for houses, black for roofs and green for trees.

Step 3: Assembling the pieces

Once the paper is cut, remove the various parts from the working table and assemble them. When building a house, fold and glue the walls, then add the roof once the glue has dried. To create the trees, simply combine the two parts.
