1. Cut out along solid lines using a detail knife.
  2. Score along the dotted lines using a scoring tool and ruler.
  3. Glue the pieces together where indicated. There are 3 pieces per each of the 3 layers.
  4. Fold along the score lines, alternating between mountain and valley folds (like an accordion).
  5. Place the 3 layers one in front of the other for display, with the shortest layer in front and the mountains in the back.

Making and Storing

I love this style of decor because it works well as winter decor from Fall through January. If you store it carefully, it will be a perfect winter decoration for many years to come. Though we did cut our village on our Cricut Explore, you can use the SVG files for any cutting machine. For this village an 8.5×11 white card stock works well. For those of you who like to hand cut, we are also offering the printable template. Just use the buttons below to download.
