Simple Paper Gingerbread House Tutorial

New video! This time we’re creating 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!

Click the image below to watch the video tutorial:


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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Difficulty: Intermediate

Pattern 3

On pattern 2, don’t cut out the whole window, leave some space around those inner lines ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a cutting machine?
