Winter Papercraft Sampler

While the weather outside has been rather warm these last few days, winter is still here and I am looking forward to hot chocolates, building snowmen and bundling up in warm knits. I am trying to start inexpensively decorating my house each season, and so I did this papercraft sampler to hang in a frame in my entranceway.

The squares are mounted on white cardstock at 12"x12", then the silver is 11"x11"and the navy cardstock is 10.5"x10.5". Each square is 2.5x2.5", with the inner squares at 2.25" x 2.25".

I had a lot of fun coming up with different designs and items for each square. Some of them are very traditional, such as the snowman, snowflakes and winter hat.

Other squares such as the hearts were tied into the winter theme by keeping the same colour scheme throughout the sampler.

I especially love my little penguin square!

I also wanted a few snowflake and glitter elements, as well as dimension with layered stickers and foam squares. The squares are a mixture of stickers, punches and stamps that I had in my supplies.

If you would like instructions on any particular square, please feel free to ask!

  7. I love the idea of reflecting the seasons in your home decor, I'm kind of working with that idea in my own way. I love the cloud on your sampler - its simple and elegant!

  8. visiting from show and tell. What a lot of work doing so many different blocks. Must have taken ages

  9. I've seen a few blog post recently by people who are reflecting the seasons in their house decorations- such a great thing to do and really easily achievable... Might have to think about doing it in my own house :-)

    Your sampler looks great! My 4 year old is peering over my shoulder telling me how beautiful the snowman is!- Great praise!
