Paper House Luminaries

“I designed a paper house template a few years ago and have had lots of fun modifying it into various things from postage stamp holders to haunted house luminaries. Most recently, I used the design to craft a multiple house glowing mobile. It’s a sweet display lit for evening company, as a housewarming gift or other fun event. Because each house will need to be manually opened and every flameless tealight turned on one at a time, this display lends itself to more of a special occasion decorating piece. However, unlit, it is really sweet as everyday decor.

Download the FREE Paper House Luminary PDF file and print to the back of each trimmed sheet. My tutorial house shows the printed template lines in black, however, the lines in the actual file will print much lighter so as not to show up in your finished project.

To make the houses like I did for this project, trim one-sided patterned scrapbook paper into letter-size sheets to feed through your desktop printer. I chose papers from DCWV, The Garden Tea Party Stack I purchased at Michaels with my 40%-Off app coupon. I happen to be pretty fond of theDCWV design crew, so I love using their papers whenever possible.”
