12 Weeks Of Christmas: Week 6 Oh So Cute Gingerbread Houses

I think I have finally caught up on my 12 weeks of Christmas posts - YAY!   Today I am sharing a little Gingerbread house I saw on Pinterest made by Leigha Rock.   It was so cute I just had to recreate it using what I had in the way of supplies.  It is made with the milk carton die & it is very tiny!  This 1st house I made to put lollies in.  The top opens & it is a solid construction.

It is made from Crumb Cake & Whisper White & mostly punch art.  Isn't it cute!  

Then, as I was putting it together I thought….hmmm I wonder if I punched out a few windows whether one of the little battery operated candles would fit inside to light it up.  On this one I used Baked Brown Sugar & Whisper White & punched out the windows with a 1" square punch & replaced them with Vellum.  Ta-Da!  I still need to tweak the design a bit but love this version as the candle flickers like a little fireside scene.
