Illuminated Houses with LED Tea Lights
Illuminated houses with LED tea lights are cut from card using a template and assembled with double-sided adhesive tape. Vellum paper is attached behind the holes for windows.
How to do itAttached file: Download
Print out a template for each house. Attach the template onto a piece of white card, cutting through both layers simultaneously without the template moving. Don't cut out the outline of the house just yet.
Cut out the windows and the door, followed by the outline of the house.
Score along the dotted lines by using a bone folder or a blunt cross stitch needle.
Attach double-sided adhesive tape onto the flaps.
Turn over so the back is facing you and attach double-sided tape above, underneath and between the windows. Attach vellum paper (onto the double-sided adhesive tape).
Fold all score lines. Remove the protective paper from the double-sided tape piece by piece and assemble the house.
Place the house over an LED tea light.
