Christmas DIY Week 6/8: Glitter Paper Houses

Paper Christmas Houses

After last week’s glittery tutorial, I’m a bit stuck on glitter! The hardest thing about drafting this tutorial was not overdoing the glitter but I managed to find a happy medium!

These were super fun and easy to make with maximum results! You can use any colour glitter card you like to suit the rest of your Christmas decorations or you can make these mini Christmas trees from last weeks tutorial (here) and create a glittery village!
