How to Make
For the 3D frame, paint the lid section of a mini craft box on the inside and outside, then leave it to dry. Use any shape of box, depending on your design.
- Use the corner of a square craft box lid to make a little house. Cut the lid in half to make a triangle, measure 2.5cm down from the top point of the triangle on both sides then cut into the box. Cut the front of the box into a house shape, making the sides 1.5cm from the base of the roof and 3.5cm across the bottom.
- Cut pieces of leftover card to fit on the sides of the house, then glue in place. Cut a corner section from the leftover box to make an overhanging roof with the sides 3cm in length.
- Use a small piece of thick card or print a door and windows onto the front of the house, or paint with a brush. Leave to dry. Glue a thin layer of cotton wool onto the roof.
- Glue the lid onto a folded card with a printed snowy background scene, then glue the house inside the painted lid. Glue a small piece of cotton wool around the base of the house.

Christmas Tree Window :
Add a sprinkle of white glitter to your snowy scenes for some Christmas sparkle. The easiest way to fix the glitter is with a light application of spray glue over the cotton wool, masking any areas with a scrap paper where you don’t want the glitter to stick.
