Mini Gingerbread House Gable Box Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! In this week’s video tutorial, we’re making a tiny gable box that looks like a gingerbread house! These are the perfect size for small gifts such as gift cards, jewelry, candy, and more.

 

 

I’ve always liked gingerbread houses (if you’ve seen a few of my Christmas tutorials like my Simple Paper Gingerbread House TutorialGingerbread House Snow Globe Tutorial, or my Halloween Paper Gingerbread House Tutorial I didn’t have to tell you that! 🙂 ) For this project, I thought a gable box might be the perfect shape to turn into a gingerbread house, and I think it worked really well.

Because this project involves an X-Acto knife, please ask someone to supervise if you are young 🙂

 

Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~1 hour

Materials:

  • Kraft card stock paper (works great and is already gingerbread colored!)
  • White gel pen
  • Fine white glitter
  • X-Acto knife
  • Score tool
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Where I live, crocuses are nature’s way of saying Spring is almost here! I believe they are the flower associated with Spring for many others, also.

These aren’t hard to make and they are pretty adorable. Put them in a mason jar, and they make a really cute desk decoration!

 

Time needed: ~30 minutes (per flower)
