Good Morning! Today is my turn to open another window for the Belles and Whistles Advent calendar! WOW only 6 more sleeps til Christmas! This went by so fast!
This is actually a gift I gave to my girls on the 12th as a halfway to Christmas gift! Being that this year they are 5, 6 and 7 I figured they were old enough to make a gingerbread house ~ what I mean is get through getting it together without eating all the candy and getting frosting everywhere but on the house! LOL I have created a tag card to go along with the cookie cutters for the walls of the house!
This image ~ Gingerbread Corner ~ is so cute and perfect for the gift! I made a tag with her and I also put the recipes for the gingerbread, the "glue" for the walls and one for the frosting. (I got it all from a Martha Stewart magazine.) I went with Kraft paper and distressed it with Vintage ink so it would resemble gingerbread to go along with my theme. The sentiment was made with individual rub-ons and I added glitter and distress inks all over!
This is the first year we are doing this and I think if all goes well it will be a tradition at our house! If it does turn out good I will put up some pictures as we are making it this morning! We are also due for a bit of snow so hopefully we get it made quick and painfree so we can go out and play!! I just love the snow ~ makes me feel young again!! (haha)
Well thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week-end!
