Christmas Snowhouse

This is a family tradition started by my parents when we were kids. Dad & mum always made a snowhouse or snowman that small gifts could be put inside, to put on the table after Christmas dinner. We decided to try and make one with my daughter the Christmas just gone. We made the main shape from a cardboard box and cut strips of card to stick to the outside to look like wooden planks. The roof is a separate piece of card covered with Christmas snow felt. We printed Christmas scenes from inside various homes found on the internet for the views inside the windows and framed with more strips of card. Battery lights and a silver sleigh with teddy reindeer and santa added finishing touches. Hope you like it. We had great fun making it.
