Church and Reindeer

This little church almost hit the garbage can a few times on Sunday. Sometimes what you think will be an easy little craft turns out to be a two hour long process between what you see in your mind and what you really end up with. I want to make a few more and now that I know what I am doing maybe the next one will be finished in less than two hours.


I saw quite a few of these cute paper churches and houses at Christmas time last year. But as any crafter knows you have to start your Christmas crafts very early. Early November may still be too late.


I love these little unfinished pieces you can buy at any craft store. Until last year all I ever did was paint them. Then my fascination with all things paper kicked in. Now, the possibilities are endless. A green dotted reindeer, why not?

The church and reindeer are very cute.It looks like it takes a lot of cutting out small pieces.If it took you two hours it should take me two days. Have a great day........
