This is a nice little gift you can give to family and friends.  Here it's shown all folded up with a belly band (for easy storage).

Open up completely and stand up on a fireplace mantel or a special shelf to show it off during the holidays. 

How'd She DO That Jolly Gingerbread Home Décor:

  • You'll need two of the "Shaded Spruce door" gift card holders (trim off one panel from the one on the left and the "small flap" from the one on the right), and one additional gift card holder.  Adhere together as shown.
  • For the two printed die cut houses on each end - attach a scrap of Real Red cardstock under the "star" windows, then adhere to gingerbread houses.
  • For the (3) center white die cut houses - stamp swirly image at top with Mint Macaron ink, and attach candy stickers.
  • Die cut letters from Real Red and Shaded Spruce cardstock with Playful Alphabet Dies.  Adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere to gingerbread houses.
  • Close by fan folding panels.  Wrap Just Jade Ribbon around it and tie in a bow.
  • Stamp sentiment on printed die cut label with Mint Macaron ink.  Use Take Your Pick tool to create a hole.  Thread gold cord ( Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack) through hole and around ribbon bow and tie off in a knot.

After receiving my kit and sorting all of the pieces.  This was the first idea that came to my mind.  I was super excited when it all came together exactly how I saw it in my head.   Love it when that happens!
