Hi guys!! To kick off the list of projects I have lined up for this (pink!) Holiday season, today I present to you this super cute and VERY affordable Christmas Paper Village Advent Calendar!! Of course I went with silver, white, and pink as that is this year's Christmas theme ;) . 

I love how whimsical all these lit up little paper houses look hanging from my ceiling, especially at  night! They make the perfect centerpiece decoration for my dinning room table during the Holidays!

-- En Español -- Hola chicos!! Para empezar la lista de proyectos que tengo planeado para esta temporada (rosada!) de fiestas, hoy les presento este Calendario de Adviento super lindo y MUY económico asemejando una aldea Navideña! Por supuesto decidí crearlo en plateado, blanco, y rosado porque esos son los colores temáticos de este año para Navidad ;)

Me encanta lo mágico que se ven todas estas casitas alumbradas colgados de mi techo, especialmente durante la noche!! Son el centro de mesa perfecto para decorar mi comedor para estas fiestas Navideñas!

Next you just need to follow 8 easy steps:
1. Cut out of white paper the pattern to create an origami house. I used this template as a guide and just modified it a bit by adding a bottom to the house. Fold the house into shape and hold together with tape.
2. Repeat until you have created 25 paper houses.
3. Use glitter and glue to decorate the roofs of all the houses.
4. Use more glitter or a marker to number each house.
5. Repeat until all 25 houses are decorated.
6. Cut out different sized stars in glitter foam (optional).
7. Insert the led candles into each house and secure with tape.
8. Tie transparent fishing string around each house and glittered star and hang from the ceiling using tape.

All done!

Luego solo necesitas seguir estos 8 pasos sencillos:
1. Recorta en papel blanco el modelo de casa origami que gustes. Yo utilicé éste template de guía y le añadí un recuadro para cerrar la casita por debajo. Dobla la casa para darle forma y sujétalo con tape.
2. Repite el mismo proceso hasta tener 25 casas hechas de papel.
3. Utiliza escarcha para decorar el techo de las casas.
4. Utiliza más escarcha o un marcador para enumerar las casas.
5. Repite el mismo proceso hasta tener 25 casas decoradas.
6. Recorta en foam escarchado estrellas de diferentes tamaños (opcional).
7. Inserta las velas led dentro de cada casa y sujétalo con tape.
8. Amarra hilo de pescar transparente alrededor de cada casa y estrella para poder colgarlo del techo de tu casa sujetándolo al techo con tape.

Y listo!
