Festive House Bunting
1. Scan or download our house templates into your digital cutting machine. Group the elements together to enlarge or reduce the design as desired. Ungroup them and move the main outline to the side as this will be cut as a solid shape to use as a background base. Alternatively, you can cut out our templates by hand.

2. Cut several backgrounds from cream card and a selection of intricate designs from coloured card. Separate the elements from the intricate designs but keep them in colour groups. Choose three colours for each house; one for window frames, one for roof and trims, and the last for the main body of the house. Build up the abode on the cream background shape, starting from the bottom and leaving a narrow border all around.

3. Check the fit of window frames in the apertures before glueing in place, and rub the elements flat with the back of your thumbnail so they fit flush. Cut very small decorative shapes using the library in the ScanNCut’s memory, or with dies and punches. Decorate each house differently with these small shapes, before fixing yarn to the back of each one with washi tape so they can be hung as a garland.

“I’ve used mini punches of holly, stars, hearts, ribbon and Christmas trees to decorate my houses”
