Can you sense how giddy I am to share with you these tiny houses illuminated with LED tea lights? They would be pretty on a table setting, or as little surprises in nooks or the corner of a shelf. How about as Christmas ornaments?

These are easy enough to cut by hand, so I used pdf files and print the 2 pages out on cardstock – this Neenah Exact Index Cardstock is one of my favorite paper to use – nice quality, acid free, about 215 gsm thick, and so versatile!

LED tea light candles are great, no worries about anything burning!
I had so much fun taking photos of these paper houses in the garden, it almost feels like some little fairies are going to jump out behind the bushes!
