Folk Art Village Cut File Assembly Instructions

Folk Art Village Cut File Assembly Instructions

These folk art-inspired village houses have been bumping around in my head for quite a while, and I’m so happy with how they turned out! In the video below, I’ll show you a step-by-step assembly tutorial for House 1, but all of the houses in the collection are assembled in the same way, so once you’ve put one together, you’ll know how to put them all together.

Each house only took me about 15-20 minutes to assemble, so it was about an hour and a half to put all five together.

Tip : If you notice that your cardstock or vellum is warping after you add liquid glue, you can place the piece or pieces under something heavy like a coffee table book or two until they’re completely dry. This way, they’ll dry flat.
