Gingerbread House...


It's become a tradition with my kids to make a Gingerbread House or Tree during the holidays.  When my kids were real little they called it a "KiKi House".  I'll be honest, the Gingerbread Tree has been made more than the House.  There seems to be very little patience waiting for the sides of the house to dry before the candy decorating can occur.  That's why I really like this paper house, no icing needed just a hot glue gun and a Cricut of course!


Paper Gingerbread House

Paper Gingerbread House

I used a variety of cartridges to decorate this house, 6 in total along with 4 different embossing folders.
To showcase how K. Andrews stamps sets can be mixed and matched, I incorporated a few stamps sets into my Gingerbread House too.



Here's the Cricut Cartridges I used to embellish the Gingerbread House:


  • Sweet Treat Boxes- House/Windows
  • Plantin Schoolbook- Scalloped Roof Layers & Ground Snow
  • Paper Doll Dress Up-Window Snow
  • Mini Monsters-Candies
  • Just Because Cards-Gingerbread Man
  • Christmas Cheer-Candy Canes
  • Embossing Folders-Dots, Dominoes, Swirls and Circle Flowers

  


I assembled the house and decorated it like a real Gingerbread house using different texture embossing folders, ric-rac ribbon, various stickles and glitters.   





To make the "Sweet Treat's" sentiment I mixed and matched Kristal's Fall-O-oween, Winter Wishes Sentiments and Sweet Wishes Bonus Stamp Sets.  



Guess what the red peppermint's are on the lollipop and the roof? There actually a stamp! I used the peppermint stamp from Kristal's Sweet Wishes Bonus Set that she'll be promoting again soon with her stamp orders. 
  





One good thing about a paper house is I actually get to keep all my hard work!
