Here’s a tealight house (sideview) made some time ago but never posted until today. Am thinking ahead for Christmas already, mainly because I want to get The Cake made and put away to mature with regular glugs of brandy or other spirit. And that the summer solstice has just passed. We’re now starting the run down to the winter one and with each successive day, the hours of light get shorter and shorter. It made me think of the paper tealight village and how truly lovely tealights are, glimmering, flickering and glowing in the gloom.
I might remake the actual model and do a better job of using contrasting papers for the frames and the main bits of the house. Still, you can see the shape and the numerous little cuts to let light shine out prettily on a dark evening (battery-operated tealights only though!).
It’s made chunkier than I normally like but I know some people like their kiddos to help make them and they prefer things a little bigger for small fingers.
It’s easy to make, no tricky folds or difficult apertures to slot together.
A front view …
A view of the roof showing the ‘scallops’ opened out (can’t see it very well on the right but they have the scallops, too).
The SVG file for the model is on sale at €4.00.

You will need a cutting machine that can use the SVG format, eg, Silhouette, Cameo, Black Cat Cougar, etc, to make use of the file. Your template will be sent to the e-mail address of the PayPal account holder responsible for making the payment unless otherwise directed.
Thank You for looking.
