3d Gingerbread House

Yesterday some of my co-workers and I had a little gingerbread house decorating fun! We all started  with the same house…
 and added our own embellishments…
I love how each of them turned out!

Decorating these little houses would be a great activity for a holiday party, and super kid friendly too.
At each place setting provide an assembled house and fill small bowls with paper candy, wreaths, gingerbread men, trees, windows, banners etc for embellishing. Then turn on your favorite Christmas music and you’ve got yourself a party! They are really fun to make, and make very little mess.

    I love this! Great for kids and not nearly as messy as gingerbread and frosting plus you know it will be standing when you’re finished ha ha :) I hope Santa got my letter and Christmas miracles happen for this special girl! Really hope I get a silhouette this year!

  14. What an adorable house! I’m stopping by from Little Inspiration.

    Where did you get that brown paper?

    1. jeana says:

      Hi Suzette,

      The brown paper is Kraft paper that I purchased at Archivers, but you can usually find it at just about any craft supply store.

      To answer the question below… once you have the shape open, click ungroup down at the bottom left of your screen. Then you can re-arrange the shapes to fit your paper size.

      Hope this helps :)

    Also,can you do a gingerbread house tutorial? When I put my 8.5 x 11 paper on my mat, the shapes are too large. How did I make it all work into that size paper?
