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


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