Everyone loves yummy treats during the holiday season and when they come packaged up in delightful containers it’s even more exciting to receive them!

If you’re looking for gift ideas for teachers, friends and neighbors this little project is the perfect idea!

I found this cute little  gingerbread house treat box.

I kept the colors similar to that of a real gingerbread. So I used kraft colored paper for the base of the box.

When I opened the file up I ungrouped everything and then grouped together all the pieces that I wanted to cut in white card stock, then red card stock & green card stock.

I then chose Adhesive Backed Cardstock from the drop down menu and made sure that my blade depth was correct, then hit Send to Silhouette.

I then cut out the house pieces, like I mentioned earlier, from some kraft colored cardstock.  I decided that I wanted to have the windows of the design pop by placing some blue card stock behind them.

 

So I ungrouped the house part that had the windows and moved the windows off of the cutting mat.

I then duplicated the house piece so that I could 2 pieces from blue card stock.

Once these pieces were cut I adhered them to the backsides of the house using some tape along the outer edges.

I then adhered the white cardstock pieces to the front & back of the house. I then added the wreath and bow afterwards.

The last step is adhering the side panels. Just fold along the perforated lines, put some glue on the tabs and adhered on the sides.  You’ll notice little slits on each end of the tab – these will face inwards so that you can close the box up after adding your goodies.

Yummy!

The back of the house is simple with just the windows. I added a green bow at the top window for some added color.

HI there! I’m Cari Locken from Langley, BC, Canada. I’m a wife and mother of 3 amazing kids! I have been crafting since I was a child and love the creative outlet that this hobby brings to me. My formal training is in the area of music as I have a Masters degree in Music and I am currently teaching Band (to Grades 5, 6 & &) as well as private piano lessons. However I always find time to dig out my scrappy supplies and work on a few projects here & there. I love creating scrapbook layouts, preserving the everyday moments and special memories of our family life as well as creating cards & home decor items . Other than scrapbooking I enjoy spending time watching my children play sports, reading, knitting, photography and cooking. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Silhouette Team!

  1. Love it, Cari! 3D crafts are so fun, especially at Christmas time. And especially filled with yummy treats. 😉
