Victorian Christmas Paper House

I made this easy Victorian Christmas paper house for my dr.
I printed it out on plain white cardstock and painted the roof with glitter Mod Podge before cutting it out. I punched a hole in the roof and added the string to hang it from.
She loved it and said that she is going to try to keep it away from her cat.

Here is the pattern

Christmas Ornamnet Cards

I made everyone special card ornaments this year.
I wanted them to be as special as the person I sent them to

To my nieces and nephews

Cotton Candy Beanie Hat

Finished a cute beanie hat for my niece.
I used a simple beanie pattern in single crochet and added the pom pom and tassels at her request

Santa Bi-wing Airplane Paper Model

I did it! I made this Santa bi-wing paper model for my dad for his Christmas card. It was much more than I expected. It took a week of cutting and gluing at about an hour a day. I ran down to the wire on time and had to leave off some of the fancy details. He loved it just the way it turned out.
Here is the link to download the pattern. It is 10 pages long. I printed it out on cardstock.

Here is a picture of Santa's head. It is about the size of a Lego figure head

Next I worked on the body of the plane. I found that I got the perfect cylindrical shape by wrapping the body around a paper towel tube.
