Head across the snow-capped Alps with these gorgeous winter village papers from Emily Lester. These designs capture what we love most about the snowy season: woollen mittens, robin redbreasts, Christmas villages, and if we’re lucky enough, hitting the slopes! So get cosy, get crafting and warm someone’s heart this Christmastime with these stylish mountain-inspired papers. There's even a skiing Santa!

Here's a top tip, why not add white glitter or glitter glue along one side of the trees, or at the top of the mountains for some extra frosty sparkle. Download your free alpine skiing printables to get started.
