Let’s Make An Old Town!—Set 1
Two houses, and your choice of four fancy fronts, with decorative Baroque and stepped-gable façades.

Schreiber-Bogen models are renowned, and these two small houses (about seven inches high) can be a great first project.
The "Let's Make An Old Town" model creates a charming tree ornament with a yesteryear feel.
While these charming little houses were intended for model railroad enthusiasts—and thus labeled "HO" scale—why not use them as Christmas decorations? All you need to do is cut out all the window panes, including the round one in the attic, and attach—with a few drops of glue—cellophane on the wrong side of the walls. I used a gold color here, but red, mauve, or green would work as well. Illuminating your Baroque House: For a magical touch, you can leave one of the back windows sans cellophane, so you can insert a tiny LED bulb and give your ornament life. Caution: Please do not use old-type, non- LED bulbs in the paper house, because—even at the smallest wattage—of the danger of fire.
