Festive Village Introduction

We are going to be making it christmas village andi I'm really excited about this because you really customize it in any way that you I want tio but it's all based from the same paper mache a house and we just altered them to make completely different shapes so let's first go to where you can find this kit we are back on my mind's eye dot com and we haven't talked about it yet but I do wanna point now that we have over here uh section for our block and you can go there and find tons of crafting ideas from our whole creative team if you are looking for a new ideas even more than in these two days so we're going to go in the o to the shop we're going to go into creative live projects and you can see now we have our christmas village kit and you can find all of the supplies you need to decorate the house is here now the actual paper machete form is from hobby lobby so you will find that at hobby lobby but it's just a really simple basic form so I'm going to show you that right now as you ...

can see what it looks like this is how they come just a plain paper machine box and the top comes right off and they're all the same they do have a larger size but they don't have a variety of shapes so that's, what we're going to be working on today, let's, go back to the power points so that we can look at that. All right? So what we're going to be using from my mind's eye are several of the papers from our markets tree line, which we talked a little bit about yesterday. It is a christmas line, but it also has a lot of floral and mint and gold and pink, which a lot of christmas doesn't have, and so it could be used for a large variety of things were also using a little bit of our cozy christmas line, which is more traditional and house those breads and greens. But it's really easy to use my story for this and make like a whole village and florals or pinks that you could use in the spring with that fun vintage feel, so you could really use it any time of year. But I think we're all mostly used to those villages coming out at christmas for dick, or they were extremely popular in like the fifties s and forties and their everything vintages coming back, so they're becoming very popular again. I love making my own again because I can customize them and make them match my own home in the styling on dh then I could also create different types on shapes.

Watched a little of this and was disappointed by her frequent mumbling, making it impossible to understand quite a bit of what she was saying. I didn't find her ideas very innovative but didn't watch the whole thing.
