If you love paper as much as I do, a DIY Whimsical Paper House will be right up your alley! They are so delicate, pretty and detailed and so much fun to make!


Hello Friends! Today I am creating a paper village of my own,with pretty pastel colored houses and green ombre’ trees. My daughter and I had so much creating our own DIY Whimsical Paper House- we laughed, we giggled, we went ooh aah and finally had so much fun arranging the scene. We sprinkled some glittery snow around it to make it look snowy, because well we live in Minnesota and boy is it snowy here.

I just became a part of the Tonic Studio’s USA team and I shared my blog post over on their yesterday- showing you how to make these DIY Ombre Paper trees. These are super simple to make, so easy and bring a nice pop of color.



Watch the video tutorial of how I put these DIY Whimsical Paper houses together on my YouTube channel here or by clicking on the video box below.

The video explains and demonstrates how to make these paper houses much better than anything I could type here. So go watch the video!

I used this Gingerbread house die set to cut out all of paper houses. This set comes with a many intricate designs and you can mix and match everything to make your own customized house.


All the score lines are marked for you, and assembling these houses are pretty simple. The first one takes a few minutes longer- till you figure out which piece goes where and then it all clicks into place.


The finished houses aren’t too large. They fit perfectly in your palm actually.


Everything you see here is made from plain card stock. That’s it. I had so much fun selecting the colors to use on each Whimsical paper house and creating a color palette of my own for this. There are endless color options that you can use and you can customize this to match your style.

Whimsical Paper HouseI used gold mirror cardstock for this house and this one turned out SO pretty! It is pretty tough to capture that shine on video or photo but if you like a glittery shiny look you must give this a try!

These little paper houses are versatile- you can make these to decorate your mantle, or maybe make them as tiny favor boxes. They could be an ornament or place settings. I went ahead and created a small paper holiday village with these whimsical houses. I chose to make my houses colorful but simple with just white details. And these look so cute on my holiday mantle!




Let me know in the comments below what you would create with these dies! Happy Crafting my friends!
