Step 1: Your graphics

Import the “Christmas Village” file consisting of 6 tabs into a graphics software of your choice. Each tab will contain the different elements of your village, including houses, roofs, and trees. We designated white for houses, black for roofs, and green for trees, however, you can coordinate these hues to the style and colors of your table.
