Home for the Holidays: Festive Creations by Jenny Svensson

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to our special Saturday edition of our holiday craft extravaganza! We promised you a continuous supply of craft ideas throughout the holiday season and we intend to keep our word. Today we have some sparklingly wonderful projects by Jenny Svensson. She is the queen of finding unique ways to work with paper. Today's crafts are further examples of Jenny's inventiveness and knack for beautiful papercrafting. Just have a look at these gorgeous Christmas houses. This would look so amazing on my mantle, if I had a mantle, or a fireplace for that matter. But really, this would look stunning anywhere in the home. Wow your holiday guests with this brilliant piece of holiday decor. It's an instant smile maker.



"I love making houses, so I couldn’t help myself from making a Christmas banner with little, snowy houses. It turned out pretty cute, but impossible to have hanging on the wall without the houses turning upside down, so I simply placed it on the wainscot cap in our hall, where it fits perfectly." -Jenny

"It’s not easy taking good Christmas photos of babies who would rather be out exploring the world around them than sitting still on the couch. These are my two children three years ago, and poor big brother tried really hard to get his little sister to sit still, but without much luck. I still love this photo, and the other ones I got at the same time, because we all had so much fun the day we took them."
