gingerbread house

So I have to say I am also in LOVE with the Holiday Treats set by A Chemistry With Paper!!

I can’t stop using it. I haven’t seen anything else like it, and am just working on putting all the possibilities in my head, onto paper!

Nothing say’s you care like the way your present a gift. Especially as crafter’s, making cute packaging can be so rewarding.

This Gingerbread House treat box was one of the many to come.

I saw these cute gingerbread house idea’s, by Martha Stewart. It was $7.99 for 6 SMALLER treat boxes!!! That’s a $1.33 per box. Granted it came with a tiny piece of ribbon/tag for each-but still.

I made my own with ONE sheet of creamy caramel cardstock 0.23 cents to make!

I just scored my cardstock  along the 11 length-with my Scor-Pal at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2 then 10.

I then scored along the 8 1/2 side at 1 1/2 and 6. This makes the top, and bottom.

For my house, I used the gingerbread-man border, from Holiday Treats byACWP, stamped around the box. Colored with Copic’s and white singlo gel pen. Red stickles on the buttons.

The “sign” is thier Holiday Cheer set-another great one.

I then used Papertrey Ink Borders & corners for the “window’s”, stamped in white craft.

For the trim around the box, I used Its Elemental by MFT Stamps.

 My Keytag punch made the door.

VIOLA!! My own holiday Gingerbread House treat box!

Here is what is inside-click for larger view.


These are two of the gourmet rice crispy treat’s I spoke of in a few other posts. They are by Archer Farms (Target), and two in a pack is only 0.80 cents!!!

These are peanut butter, with choc. drizzle, and a milk choc. with white/dark choc. drizzle! They are SO yummy!!! Plus since they are pre-wrapped you can start packaging them all up without making them or worry they’ll go bad.

Cute huh??

Hope you like it!

Till tomorrow. I have another Elzybell card, and MORE samples from ACWP!!!

Plus I’ll announce the winner of the Cookie Recipe Holder!
