Christmas Recycling - Colour Me House Kits

Posted on December 12, 2015 at 2:05 PM

I had time this week to do a little construction work using one of our lady Martha's house templates to make a few kits featuring what I call my Colour Me Housing Estates. Several friends mentioned that they would love to make Putz houses as decorations but had little time to actually download, print, cutout, and decorate these before Christmas. So - I decided to help out and this is the result. 

I constructed each little house using junk mail card weight paper from my recycling bin. The box used to be a cereal box in a former life. I used a box template from the Template Maker and modified it a little to suit my own style.

Since I like to add a little zip to each of my gifts, I'll be wrapping each box in LED string lights. At delivery, each box will be lit up before presentation. 

NOTE: Remember to shop your recycle bin for paper and cardboard to make your own Christmas real estate! Now I just have to find the time to get out there and deliver!
