I made it with George and Design studio software. It stands about 2.5 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide. It is hollow inside, perfect for some cinnamon stuff- yum! The candy cane and candy are cut at 1 inch on Christmas cheer. I used white puffy paint for frosting, and green puffy paint for gum drops, both of which I covered in dazzling diamonds - I'll cover anything in DD I possibly can
To make yours, use cricut to cut pattern (Due to many requests I am reposting this file. You are welcome to use it for personal use, but it was a design I spent a lot of time on, please do not redistribute or claim it as your own)
I used craft paper, then sponged on some chocolate chip and really rust ink, the sponging made it look more gingerbread-y
Score house at 1.5, 3, 4.5 and 6 inches
Fold tabs and clue in place-this will be obvious one you've cut the pattern.
You will now have a box "bottom" which you can fill with some spices if you like :)
Fold roof in half and insert a knotted ribbon loop through center hole. I also scored along the scallops so they would point down (see photo)-but you could just bend them or leave them, up to you! Decorate roof with white puffy paint and glitter, hang to dry. When dry attach to top tabs on house.
Decorate your house, there is a door on the file, but I ended up just using puffy paints, candy canes (Christmas Cheer, cut at 1 inch) and candies (Christmas Cheer, cut at 1 1/2 inches). I also printed out a date with 11pt font. I tried writing it on and just managed to ruin a house, so unless you have really good penmanship and a steady hand, I'd recommend NOT writing it directly on the house.
