I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but it took me folding about 4 paper dummies before I figured out I could get the simple 3D house of my dreams by simply cutting a couple “M” shapes out of the top of my 8.5″ x 11″ paper. Easy-peasy! After that, I just had fun and played around with creating some cute window designs, and imported it into the Cricut Design Space.

After I hit “cut” on my machine (the most exciting part!), I had this adorable little house design left behind on my cutting mat.

I folded each house-wall, at each “point” of my upside-down “M” shapes, to form my walls. I started to see my 3-D vision come together!

There is a tab built into one side of my cut-file. This allows us to wrap the house around itself and use adhesive to join the two sides together.

I used a roll-on adhesive. It’s nice and handy, and keeps things pretty clean. Once you seal the two sides of the house together, you’ll be left with the body of your little house.

Now let’s put a roof on this thing! Grab your two rectangular roof sides, and apply your adhesive to one side. Match the two sides up as best you can, and press together.

You now have a roof! And, your little house should be able to stand on it’s own. You’ll even be left with the perfect little circular cut-out up top, to attach a tree hanger, or pretty ribbon.

My new paper ornaments were the perfect touch to my Christmas tree that I was loving, but desperately wanted to add more of a pinky punch to. This did the trick! And these adorable elongated homes remind me of the rows and rows of tall town homes you’d see lining a London street. Too perfect.

I loved lining each one up with a tree light, to get that perfect glow at night. You can almost imagine little people living inside of each one, celebrating the holidays too.
