Simple Paper Gingerbread House Tutorial

 

New video! Shows how to create a gingerbread house out of paper!

Real gingerbread houses can be a bit messy and hard to make. Paper greatly simplifies the process – and if safely stored, you can use the house year after year!

 

After the video was uploaded, I realized the clip showing how to put the house together accidentally got deleted. To put together the house, fold back all the tabs, put glue on them, and glue the pieces together. If you have any questions, please comment below 🙂

 

Difficulty: Intermediate

On pattern 2, don’t cut out the whole window, leave some space around those inner lines 🙂

 

Have a cutting machine? There is an SVG file of a house now available for purchase here! It isn’t the same style of house shown in this tutorial, but it will still work for this project.
