Another little house your can make for your Christmas village - the Split Level Christmas House. You can find the printable template in the Paper Glitter Glue library. And materials list and instructions to make your own Split Level Christmas house are below.
There's a bit of a story to choosing this house for the last in the series. One of my buddies on the Cardboard Christmas forum sent me an email asking me if I had made a house with the shape in the photo below.
Looks easy enough, right? Well, the pattern-making is actually quite a challenge. Why? Because you have to figure out how to cover that little side of the split level. I couldn't even cut it out right. I kept cutting off tabs and scoring where I needed to cut. Fortunately the pattern worked, but it is a serious pain. That's why the second version - the version in the library is MUCH simpler.
So the pattern below is NOT the correct pattern. It just demonstrates how complicated patterns can be. You will like the one in the library MUCH better.
Since that initial pattern was so crazy, I am going to show you the new and improved pattern made with cardstock so you can see how the individual parts fit together. But first here are two other views of the Split Level Christmas house.
First step after cutting out the pattern:
