How about combining two of my passions: Reinventing Antique Seed Catalogs and Little Cottages, into little 1901 Burpee’s Cottages:

The little cottages are very easy to make with a hot glue gun:

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Print on cardstock (I use Canon Matte Photo paper (160g)
  • Cut out the cottage (all the solid lines)
  • Score on the dotted lines
  • Fold on the dotted lines
  • Glue the bottom sides of the roof
  • Glue the side walls together
  • Glue the top of the roof together
  • Tuck in the floor.
  • I usually don’t glue the floor, meaning I can insert a small gift, or a LED tea light if I wish 🙂

Here are low resolution previews of the 1901 Burpee’s Cottages:
