Tinseltown Christmas Village

Today I'm sharing one of my own projects using the new Tinseltown CD - A Christmas Village...
Supply List - Tinseltown CD, Stickles (Icicle), Thin Card, White Felt, Soft Toy Stuffing

All of the templates and pieces are on the CD, you just need to print onto thin card and cut them out - I left little tabs at the bottom of the people and trees so I could stand them up (you can cover these up with some Angel Hair or soft toy stuffing (which is what I've used here) Here is a close up of how I done them... (you can click to make the pictures bigger)
The house templates (there are 8 precoloured ones on the CD to choose from or you could use one as a template on your own papers) I printed onto thin card and then put them together using double sided tape. I added a 'snowy' effect using stickles on the roof. When I was setting it up I thought I should have printed off one of the little wreaths on there and put it on the front door - I will add that in later! :o)
Once the stickles were dry (tested lots of times by putting my finger into wet stickles and then repairing the damage I'd done *sigh*) I set the whole scene up onto a piece of white felt and added some soft toy stuffing to hide the little tabs at the bottom of the little bits - I added some stickles to the trees as well and closer to the day I might add some loose glitter over the felt / stuffing to make it sparkle. I printed one of the patterned papers off from the CD and stood it behind the whole scene to pull it all together and make it stand out against my white walls.
Now I just need to run some lights in front of it and I've got a cute little winter snow scene for my mantlepiece! The whole thing took me just over an hour to put together including printing and sticking and styling the scene so not bad for a home decor project! You could also use the digi stamps and colour them in to match the people in your family - I should have given my little girl red hair like me! :o)

You can get your copy of Tinseltown here thank you to those who have already ordered, I'm hearing it's very popular! I'd love to see pictures of your Christmas Villages if you make one.
