Chipboard Christmas Tree Decoration | Silhouette Chipboard
Hello Silhouette fans – today I have a little gingerbread house that’s made from Silhouette Chipboard.
I have adapted the design so that I could add a little battery powered tealight to shine through the windows.
Changing The Design: Part 1
After downloading my design I decided I wanted to make a couple of changes. Firstly, I removed the dotted score lines and replaced them with solid line, which I coloured blue.
I also changed the far right and far left vertical like to blue also.
Doing this enables me to use the score function rather than have lots of dotted lines which doesn’t give you a clean line.
Constructing The Box
To construct the box I made it up as normal but didn’t glue the tabs on the roof. I stuck the little round hangers, centrally, to each of the tabs I had added to the roof.
I then glued the white roof to the red one, ensuring the cut lines on the fold lined up.
I added a tealight to my house, folded the roof tabs in and then used the roof to hold everything in place.
