Little paper houses - unfinished

I have wanted to make some glitter houses since my friend gave me an ornament with a tiny glittered house inside a few years ago. I found out they are a pretty popular old fashioned decoration for the holidays, the more substantial old ones are called "Putz Houses". I found some helpful templates online (linked below) for several different styles. I used those for the form though I didn't want to do the windows and doors the same. I may even make some patterns of my own since fashioning the houseboat and caravan wasn't too difficult once I got the hang of working with the card-stock. Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue is indispensable as are decent scissors, scalloped edge scissors and x-acto blades.
