Welcome into my studio! I had the chance to partner with Hallmark this year to create a colorful Christmas diy inspired by one of their ornaments, a mini Crayola box. You already know how colors make me happy! So this year I wanted to try something a little different than the traditionnal red and green. The colorful crayons from the box reminded me of the beautiful Victorian houses here in San Francisco, where I live. So I created my own paper village using the colors inspired by the ornament.
My daughter Lula loves it too! She think I made a city of paper dollhouses just for her!
These look so lovely on a mantle and we can keep adding to it year after year.
I think when Lula gets old enough, it will be a fun family project to do together!
It’s so funny she looks inside and says “toc, toc, qui est la?” (“knock, knock, who’s there?)
