Gingerbread Chalet Village

Ooooh.............here's a Gingerbread Chalet Village cut file from using my SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot)program from SVGcuts.com. Soooooo cute and adorable. They are all so yummy.......that icing on the roof is good enough to eat!!! These three Chalets are slightly different in style and in size but overall, they are 4" x 5" x 3-1/2". They are all just the right size. Windows and doors have vellum windows............why?..............why, of course so tea lights can be put inside the house!!! Yup, tea lights.........the ones you can find a your local Dollar Store. (I think they are 4/$100). Holly berries were added to top of the doors. The holly berries can be found in the library of the SCAL program - cool, eh? Of course I didn't have the right size punch or cartridge that worked and the library was a great way to finish off the house.

Here are the houses with the tea lights inside............nice!!!

All the roofs can be removed to easily place the tea light inside......and those roofs - whoa, they are really sturdy........or some other goodies........too!! The Christmas Cookies DSP I had (from my stash) wasn't thick enough so I added re-enforced inside edges.

Chalet #3:

Of course, Mary at SVGcuts.com has a great video on how to assemble these houses to make it so easy. And, remember, if tea lights is not your fancy, remove the many "holes" and make these house into gift boxes or make them smaller for ornaments on a tree!!! The different style of houses makes them flexible for any occasion and not just for the Holidays!!!

These are so cute, Patti! Love all the wonderful details on each of these gingerbread chalets...so much work! Lol, I watched the video tutorial and got exhausted just seeing how complicated it was to put the roof together...you are amazing, Patti!
