1908 Christmas Robins – free printable gift tags

I loved the robins I used for one of the last Christmas Village cottages so much, I had to design gift tags with them as well:

I printed the individual tags as large as possible on A4-sized paper, and the images still looks fabulous! XL tags are nice for decorating around the house, or if you are giving very large gifts (like sleds or giant teddy bears) to someone.

Vintage Christmas Village – DAY 23, 24 & 25 – free printables

Have you noticed that other than the colors being Christmassy and the daily Snow Cherubs, my Vintage Christmas Village is not using a lot of typical Christmas elements? Well, today we have arrived at the final 3 Christmas Cottages, and I have allowed more obvious symbols ๐Ÿ™‚

There is also two more Christmas Trees, the gold paper lace tree, that I think fits well if you want to create a snowy scene, and the decorated Victorian Christmas Tree, that would fit anywhere ๐Ÿ™‚

Vintage Christmas Village – DAY 21 & 22 – free printables

Did you wonder about the Snow Cherubs? I knew they had to be part of this project, but it took me a while to figure out how to make them stand up. I tried various types of support:, criss cross paper, backing easels, binder clips and what not. But finally I arrived upon a solution that not only does it work perfectly, it also looks amazing, and is super easy to do:

Wings of Whimsy: Vintage Christmas Village - free printables #vintage #victorian #ephemera #cottage #snow #cherub #treeYes, it is real snow outside ๐Ÿ™‚ I have trouble getting pictures in daylight because we have so few hours of it this time of year here in Western Norway, and I almost thought I would not make it this weekend either, because it was snowing during the good hours… but I was able to do this shoot just before the daylight was gone on Sunday ๐Ÿ˜€

All 25 Snow Cherubs from my Vintage Christmas Village gathered for a big chorus of Christmas carolling ๐Ÿ˜€

The support I designed is a custom fit strip of paper, cut and folded to form a triangle, glued to the back of each Snow Cherub, and then onto bottle caps painted with 2 coats of white acrylic pain ๐Ÿ˜€ Go to the download folder below if you want a copy of the sheet with plenty of support strips ready made to print at home.

I have cut my Snow Cherubs leaving a thin white border. I think it both adds to the snowy feel, and it is a lot easier to cut them this way. You may of course cut yours precisely if you wish! Don’t they look pretty all sparkling with glitter? That was done with a quick spritz of spray glue followed by a generous dusting of glitter. Glittering all 25 Snow Cherubs takes about 2 minutes once they are assembled ๐Ÿ™‚

There is also a new Blue Rose Christmas Tree today, as well as Christmas Cottages and Snow Cherubs for Day 21 & 22:ย

I think that the Compliments of the Season Tag I’ve been attaching to each little Cottage really adds to the finish. I really love that tag, and I’ll be using it with everything this Holiday Season, not only my Cottages. So I made a printable collage sheet with it, just for my own convenience:

My cottages are hung and lit by just tucking the little bulb under the roof. But you can also hang them unlit on the tree, from a string.

Here are the next Cottages and Snow Cherubs of Day 16, 17 & 18.ย I have also uploaded a version of the French Playing Card Christmas Tree in the original, warmer, colors.
