Snowflake Gingerbread Houses

This blog is dedicated to the memory of Liliane, a creative spirit and friend.

This year I made snowflake gingerbread houses for my nieces and nephews to use as a refuge for fun and imagination. The houses are constructed of 2 by 3 foot pieces cardboard and hinged together with white duct tape. The cardboard is white on one side and brown on the opposite, which creates a gingerbread looking structure. I cut a lacy branch pattern in the door to create a privacy screen for the little house. Snowflakes hang from the eves with thread and a few snowflakes are pasted on the outside for decoration.

The houses fold up flat for easy storage. The kids loved them as did my dog, Bix.

I wish you a Happy Holiday and Hopeful New Year.
