  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 2 ZIP, 1 JPG

The downloadable and printable JPEG files include 6 miniature house boxes inspired by Russian dachas or isbas. The boxes are decorated on all 4 sides with a young lady in folk costume decorated with matriochka-style flower motifs and many details: fir tree, birds, fox, squirrel, doe, and rabbit, all under the snow.

In this version, costumes are with dominant black and red colours. There is another version with multicolored costumes (pink, orange, purple):

Perfect if you have chosen a Slavic atmosphere for the holidays: you can use these small houses to decorate the tree, choose to place them on your guests' plates (with 2 or 3 chocolates, or more, inside) or decorate your centrepiece.

This DIY decorative kit is to be printed by you, cut out and mounted in a simple way (just a collage, on the roof).

To make the houses: you will need a ruler, a paper clip or a round-tipped needle to mark the folds, glue, a pair of scissors, a cutter to cut the two slots that close the box (or double-sided adhesive if you do not want to use a cutter, in this case you will cut the tabs).
If you use these houses to decorate the Christmas tree: a notch and perforations (they are indicated) will be necessary to pass the ribbon which will be used to suspend them.
Marks will guide you in the marking of the folds. The marked folds give folds without breaking the paper. To mark the folds put under the sheet a thickness of sheets of paper, they will be better marked (I used the paper I recycle).
A manual will give you the necessary informations.

Dimensions of houses: 3,34 "x 2,48" x 1,85" / 8,50 x 6,30 x 4,70 cm approx.

No worries with files. If you print them in A4 or letter format, the houses are only big enough for a few candies or small figurines. I had to print them on the A3 sheets to put small gifts.
The houses are pretty, some less than others because not many details. The white roofs make a nice snow effect. Too bad they are all the same size and so the village is a bit monotonous at this level. But they are still very colorful, it's nice to look at. I recommend! ;)

What a wonder! Everything is exquisite in this little mouse: the finesse of the work, the choice of colors, the movement...
Françoise really creates very beautiful objects. The little extra: ready to offer in a box decorated with a nice knot. Thank you also for the ultra fast delivery! 🐭❤️
