Christmas Village Town Hall – 3D Cut File

I’ll be home for Christmas, you can plan on me. We are headed back to our picturesque little town with another challenging, but festive papercraft! So break out the cardstock, crank up the holiday music, and let’s make ourselves a towering Christmas village town hall.

I have a whole list of ideas for my Christmas village collection, but I ended up choosing this one because I just really wanted an excuse to make a building with columns! I was a little nervous to see if they would look okay being this small, but I think they turned out great, and are quite eyecatching.

Supplies

How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the pieces to your Christmas village town hall.

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 them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.

 

Prep Work

2. Start by layering your decorative elements together with the vellum window pieces on the inside. Be sure to line things up carefully so as not to get any glue in the areas that will be creased later on.

 

Assembling the Roof

3. Gather your roof pieces, and start folding along the score marks.

Then, insert the top tabs of the main clocktower piece into the slits in the other blue piece. Curl the four sections of that piece outward, slightly. Then, glue the little tabs to the inside edges of the adjacent walls.

After that, insert the top tabs into the slits in the white piece. Assemble the white, rectangular piece by folding along the score lines and gluing the provided tabs to the inside.

Lastly, attach your decorative edge pieces and the clock using foam tape.

 

4. Continue on with the roof by attaching the black roof pieces to their corresponding sections on the top of the two wall sections they go with.

Fold along the score lines, and attach these two wall/roof pieces together by gluing the tabs inside.

Next, slip the clock tower piece in the hole, and glue the tabs to the inside of the roof.

After that, start assembling the two side/front wall pieces. (The top sections fold inward to make the flat balcony roof.)

Use the slits provided to attach the balcony pieces to the tops.

Finally, attach the two side/front walls to the rest of the structure by gluing the back and top tabs inside.

 

Assembling the Columns

5. Gather your center building pieces and your white column pieces.

Start by assembling the eight little boxes using the score marks and tabs provided.

Then, carefully roll the four column pieces and glue the tab edge to the inside. Fold in the tiny top and bottom tabs, and add a dab of hot glue to keep everything together.

 

Assembling the Center Section

6. Before assembling the triangular top piece or the two rectangular base pieces, attach the eight, white column boxes using the tabs/slits provided. Then, finish assembling the two rectangular base pieces.

Insert the top tabs of the front, center wall into the corresponding slits in the triangular top piece. Then, finish assembling the triangular top piece and attach the two rectangular base pieces to the bottom.

With those in place, you can add in your four columns.

Assemble your stairs by folding the main section like a fan and attaching the two side pieces. Then, attach it in between the two rectangular base pieces, just below the doors.

Now, you can attach the entire center section to the rest of the structure—bringing the whole building together.

 

Final Assembly

7. Assemble the base piece by folding along the score lines and gluing the tabs to the inside.

Then, carefully, start inserting the bottom tabs of the building into the corresponding slits in the base. Once they are all in place, glue them down,

After that, add any embellishments you have left, and make your town hall nice and festive for the Christmas season!

Like my other pieces in this collection, I made sure to include an opening so you can slip a tealight or two inside and illuminate your building from within!

The little lamp posts were a last-minute addition to this design, and I’m so glad I included them! The building itself is impressive, but it’s these little touches that really give this project its personality.

    It’s just so pretty and detailed can’t wait to make it. I’ve made 3 of your Christmas themed papercrafts. I think i am addicted to these. But come on are they all beautiful!
    Thank you Mandy
    I will send a photo when my village is complete.

    Beautiful yet again. Does anyone have any tips on how best to store these once the season is over?

      Away from two-year-olds, is my best tip. 😉 The church I made a couple of years ago didn’t survive because of my kids, haha. But I store them in a hard, plastic container when Christmas is over (if my kids don’t get to them first)!

    Each one of your projects is just simply amazing! The details and preciseness of each one is simply amazing. How long do you work on creating the files and perfecting the design? Your finished pieces are beautiful. Do you have them all set up on display in your home for the season? It would be hard to take them down and put them away after the holidays.
    Thank you so much for being so kind and generous. Merry Christmas to you and yours! <3

      You are too sweet! These 3D files definitely take longer than the average design to make. I probably spent around 8 hours designing this one and about 5 hours putting it together and making sure everything fit right, haha. They are super fun to have on display during the Christmas season, though!!

      Merry Christmas to you as well! 🎄

    Your 3D designs are simply amazing, my brain would crack if I had to design one of these from scratch and then assemble it. Thank you so much for your generous gifts.

    Another winner! I just love my Christmas church that I made last year. It got carefully packed away and I was so happy to have it lit up this year and placed in my coffee table centerpiece! Cannot wait to make more in your series. Absolutely love the town hall. Thank you. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    J’ai fait le magasin de jouets, l’église et la boulangerie. La mairie va venir compléter le village.
    Merci d’ajouter de la magie à ces 2 derniers Noël si particuliers.
    Merci ! merci !

    This is a beautiful addition to your Christmas village. Is it strong enough to support a thin, small clock in the bell tower, taped from behind?

      The whole piece is pretty sturdy, so I think you could definitely put a real clock in there if you’d like—as long as it is small (like watch-sized). That would be awesome!!

    PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS AS A DIG, I am simply FRUSTRATED… Can you post a video of you assembling this? I was so excited to put this together. I was immediately disappointed because I could not tell/figure out which pieces needed to be assembled first. It took A LOT of trial and error and many wasted materials. I had most of the hall assembled when I discovered pieces that should have been put together first. I followed your directions but the pictures weren’t enough. I am fairly new to crafting 3D projects. I ran out of scraps and cardstock colors due to having to recut pieces… I did search YouTube for a video of how to assemble but it was not there… I LOVE YOUR PROJECTS!!!! just a bit frustrated I need to buY more cardstock and start all over…
