New 1:48 Retro Christmas Paper Laser Cut Kits or 1:12 scale Christmas tree decor

These quarter scale retro 1:48 or quarter scale Christmas kits will be available on our website and Etsy soon. I hate to cause anyone undue stress with tiny pieces flying everywhere before Christmas but I just couldn't resist designing extremely tiny laser cut paper designs. I was really happy with the reindeer, so small, yet all of their detail shows up. I need to fix the trains before I sell them because they do not hold together well yet. The 2 kits on the left are on lighter papers and have lace designs while the 2 kits on the right are on heavier paper that can be easily coloured with felt pens or watercolours etc.

I am hoping to use textured snow or sparkles on the background design in the lower right and attach some of the pieces to that before putting it on a fire place. The doilies can be used stacked for trees, angels or cones too. The Merry Christmas sign is the same as the red and silver one we used in the 50's and later. The ornaments are very 50's and later too. I hope to have more photos before Christmas of them in a scene. Happy Holiday Season to everyone!!

PS    The very talented miniaturist, Elizabeth from Studio E http://studioeminiatures.blogspot.ca/
has just suggested that these could be used to one twelfth scale Christmas Decorations and she is so right!! I'm so pleased she mentioned it. The reindeer would be about 5" in real life and the trees and nutcracker would be 3 to 4" in height etc. Great idea, thanks Elizabeth.


  1. These are really gorgeous! Love them all.

    1. HI Shannon,

      That is so kind of you to say!! I'm so pleased you like them. Thank you so much!! Mini Hugs, Jean

  2. Hello Jean,
    If I ever decide to try a smaller scale house this is the first place I will look. These are so beautiful and I am always amazed by the detail and accuracy of each piece.
    Big hug

    1. Oh Giac, what a lovely thing to say, that really means so much to me! I am really appreciating the detail the laser cutter is able to do.
      Mini and Big Hugs, Jean

  3. Hi Jean! I think that your new teeny tiny Christmas kits are adorable and I would love to see how you use them in a Quarter Scale Christmas scene.
    Although I don't know much about that scale, it makes me wonder if your kits could be use as 12th scale tree ornaments too?

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      Thank you so much for commenting!!
      Yes, I'm hoping to put them up in a scene or 2 and hopefully do an article for AIM magazine. They are so tiny I just didn't have time yet. Very tiny, LOL. I am so excited you asked about 1:12 scale, perfect timing too as I was just going to put them up on Etsy. Definitely they could be used as 1:12 scale Christmas decorations. They can be painted too. The nut crackers for example would measure 3" to 4" in real life for example. The wreath would be 5", the reindeer 4" etc, so they really would work. I will change my descriptions to include that. Thank you so much for the suggestion!! Hugs, Jean

  4. So detailled! Lovely accessoires!!!
