So this year when I signed up for the kiwi christmas ornament swap I knew what I wanted to make straight away! I bought the e-book with the pattern and instructions for the house and five other cute ornaments from here- http://shop.craftypod.com/trimmings.
The instructions were really easy to follow and although they took a little bit of time to make up they were definitely worth it (and I got quicker the more I made as you do). I made the houses slightly bigger than the pattern. One little tip - if instructions say to use craft glue don't think that PVA will do- I had a disaster with my first one trying to use PVA!!
I made up these little bags for my fellow ornament swappers.
And for my little ones I made a house each with their initial on the door and added a bit of snow and sweets to the roof.
I've received some gorgeous ornaments in the swap too so far so will share them soon :)
