nibble...nibble on my house

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  Amanda here today with a super cute gingerbread gift box that is perfect for holiday gift giving!
I started by die cutting a house shaped gift box (Silhouette) The gingerbread house box measures approximately 4"x 3 1/2"x 4 3/4".  I decorated the outside of the box not unlike I would a real gingerbread house, only instead of using candy, I used bits of paper that had a candy-like feel. 

The roof opens up so you can fill the house with a small gift or goodies.  For an extra wintry effect, I lined the windows with vellum. 

The candy dots are made with a regular ol' paper punch.  The door knob is made from a brad.  I rolled up striped paper to make the candy cane sticks on the corners of the house. 

I added scalloped trim to the roof and some peppermint striped molding around the windows (complete with mitered corners!). 

The roof is composed of several scallop punched layers accented with iridescent glitter. 

May your days be merry and bright!

Supplies: Zigzag 1687 (Splendor collection); Super Star 1511, Weekend Fun 1515 (Country Charm collection); vellum, white cardstock, scallop punches, brad, glitter.
