Miniature Paper Houses Round Up

It's been nearly five years since I last shared a collection of miniature paper houses and believe me, there's been a home construction boom around the interwebs since then! So here's a new batch of inspiring tutorials and kits... as fast as time flies, it isn't too early to start thinking about a mantel display and tree ornaments too.

Dutch Canal House Luminaries - Kate's Creative Space

Dutch canal house luminaries designed by Kate of Kate's Creative Space won me over in a split second. And how nice... she provides two sets of printables - both plain and festive.

Paper Houses Luminaries - A Piece of Rainbow

Ananda of A Piece of Rainbow designed these dear paper house luminaries that are just the right size for gnomes and fairies.

Paper House Luminaries Mobile - Just Something I Made

Cathe Holden of Just Something I Made provides a template for glowing cottages and shows how to gather them as a paper house mobile.

Tiny Paper Houses - Karin Corbin

Karin Corbin offers a variety of both tiny and micro-size paper buildings based on historic architecture styles via her Etsy shop, Karin Corbin Miniatures. I first met Karin when she left a comment on my post about paper crafting kits last spring. I knew immediately I would feature her remarkable designs this holiday season.

Miniature Paper House - Tudor-Style

A brand new Tudor Village will be available approximately November 1st.

Glittered Paper Fir House and Bottle Brush Trees

Her blogs, Karin Corbin and Glitter Houses, are a wealth of information about paper house cutting, construction, gluing, and glittering. And if you are searching for a how-to about bottle brush glitter trees, Karin is your gal.

Tea Light Paper Village - 3D Cuts

Marji of 3D Cuts offers SVG • DXF • PDF cutting files to make this pretty tea light village via her shop. Even if you don't have a mechanical cutting system, you can always go the old-school scalpel/metal ruler route.

Printable Town House Cookie Boxes - Martha Stewart Crafts

Quaint town house cookie boxes are modeled after homes in the German town of Nuremberg... just the right size to hold traditional lebkuchen. Martha Stewart provides a printable template to make a sleeve that slips over a 3-inch square box.

If you prefer folding rather than cutting and gluing, Leyla Torres of Origami Spirit shows how to make this cute little abode that was designed by Román Diaz.

Last but definitely not least are these sweet paper candle houses designed by Yvonne of Yvestown. The open roofs allow for real candles (in glass jars please!)
