You all know how much I love to bake and you know how much I love Christmas goodies, but do you know what makes me super happy? Getting to share all those sweets and treats with other people . To make the yummy gifts that bit more special I really wanted something cute to package them in. Way back in August I made some little birdhouse boxes for my Mum's birthday table, I remember thinking at the time they would make the cutest gingerbread houses.
Last year I went a bit crazy buying up a whole bunch of scrap-booking stuff I have hardly used, raiding those supplies I had everything I needed to make some cute little treat boxes.
Light brown card
Double sided tape
Double sided sticky foam squares
Black felt tip pen
To make the treat boxes- Print out both templates (they should be A4 size) and cut out the shapes.
Gingerbread House Box Template
Lay the box template on the brown card and trace around the edges.
Fold the box along the guidelines. Attach some double sided tape to the inside edges of the front and back of the box.
Cut out the door and heart window and adhere to the front of the house with double sided tape. Cut out the little gingerbread man out of the excess brown card, stick him to the box using some double sided sticky foam squares.
Draw on the details on with a felt tip pen.
Lay the roof template on the pink or blue card and trace on the guidelines.
Using the line as a guide cut around the outside with your wavy scissors. Use regular straight scissors to cut out the little bits in the middle.
And you're done. Now make something yummy, fill up the treat box and finish with a ribbon.
