If you have done any holiday shopping yet, you might have noticed that miniature holiday houses are making appearances everywhere!  Whether it be as an ornament, a gift tag or mantel decor, they are popping up everywhere.  We have provided you with a very simple printable template below so you can create your own holiday house.  Feel free to alter it in any way: add windows or doors, additions, glitter, trees, garland, mica flakes, artificial snow, woodland animals or whatever else you can dresm up!  You can even display your house in a unique way such as on a cake stand, nestled in a wreath or in a glass dome!  We are looking forward to all of your amazing house creations!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (November 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.

We look forward to seeing all of your creations!




Kelly Schirmer used classic holiday colors, red & white, to make her little house.  The touch of gingham and the folk style hearts and stars on the roof make the whole thing have a homespun feeling.


Erin T. embraced the paper house theme in a different way and created a paper tag featuring a house.  We all loved this little coffee wrap, a perfect way to dress up a quick gift for the holidays.


Sandy (aka Sankada) used bits and pieces from our Home Made set to create her sweet little house.  The tiny Christmas tree peeking through the window is one of my favorites!

Congratulations to all of the winners!  Please send a note to customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to.  Thank you to everyone who played along!  Not only do you have a small piece of holiday decor to treasure, but you have plenty of inspiration to create even more!
