Christmas Village Toy Store – 3D Cut File

Seriously, how much do you love this!? I know as the creator I’m a little biased, but I think this toy store has got to be one of the cutest paper creations on the plant!

As a child, one of my favorite memories of the holidays was decorating the house; and, like many families, my mom had an adorable little Christmas village. I fondly remember excitedly unwrapping and carefully arranging the buildings and figures each December.

So, I’ve had it in my head to create a Christmas village of my own design for some time now; but, I didn’t want it to be two-dimensional. That’s why, this year, I decided to try my hand at a 3D building! Of course, I want to include more structures in my village, but I had to start somewhere. And what better building to start with than a toy store?

I won’t even tell you how much time went into creating this festive little structure (it’s safe to assume that there is a lot of trial and error when it comes to designing in 3D), but seeing the finished results just fills my heart with so much pride!

And now, I am SO excited share this feeling of joy and accomplishment with you as you make one for yourself!

Supplies

How to Make

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the toy store pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the numerous score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re not using the SVG file that includes score lines, you can use the PDF version as a reference to know where your folds need to go.

2. Fold and glue your two base pieces. Attach the criss-cross details to the smaller base. DO NOT attach the base section together yet.

3. If you are lining your front windows with vellum, glue those pieces on next.

4. Glue your window, snow, and other structural details onto your walls and roof.

5. Fold out the top left section of the front of the store and attach the small “pop-out” piece to secure it.

6. Fold and glue the left side of your store together.

7. Attach the middle roof pieces to the front and right side of your store by inserting the tabs into the slits. Then attach the right side of your store to the front.

8. You’re finally ready to attach the back!

9. Glue on your roof pieces as well as your hanging sign. Also attach 3 posts to the front of your pop-out section and 4 pieces to the left side like so.

10. Time to attach the base sections. Insert the bottom tabs of your house into the slits in the smaller base section and glue. Repeat for the larger base section.

11. Lastly, attach your toy and wreath accents to the front and sides of your store. Use a metallic marker to add fun details and foam tape to create depth if you wish.

Even though this is a somewhat complex project, I just think it’s amazing what you can create with just a few sheets of paper! I am so excited to add to my Christmas village in the future, and can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s complete (if I ever get to that point).

P.S. I’ve included an opening in the back wall so that you can place an electric tea-light or two inside if you want to see it lit up.

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome Christmas freebies available on my blog!

I hope you have as much fun as I did putting this Christmas village toy store together! What would you like to see me add to my Christmas village next?

    Wow, and wow again. This is the cutest 3d building I have seen in a long time. The building looks like the ones you see in Germany. I will look for a photo and send it to you in a separate email. Your generosity and talent is beyond compare. I can’t even imagine how you managed to design this beautiful building. I hope that when I make one, I can embellish it with all the little touches that are so unique to your designs. You are amazing! Thank you so much!

      Thank you so much for your kind words Kathy!! You nailed it on the head! When I was sketching out ideas, I decided that it it would be fun to have a German flair to the architecture—I’m so glad you noticed!! 😀

    I love it! And am trying to make it but am unable to ge the score lines to work in Cricut Design Space. Everytime I try to attached the score lines, it make everything one color… Could you please help me get this figured out.

      Sorry you’re having trouble with the score lines! The first thing to do is ungroup the pieces (just once). Then, make sure that you only have the green lines selected when you change them to “score,” and then be sure that you have both the group of score lines as well as the object they need to be associated with selected when you select “attach.”

      Hope that helps!
