Gingerbread House - Memory Box/Poppy Stamps Blog Hop


 Welcome to the Memory Box/Poppy Stamps Blog Hop - Holiday Gift Tags or Wrappers Dec 2-Dec 4



I've created this adorable little Gingerbread House tag from the Cute Cottage and Frosted Roof and Ledges dies by PoppyStamps.  Then I added accessories like the Swirled Lollipops, Goodie Gum Drops, Mini Holly Leaves and Christmas Lights Set dies by Memory Box Stamps.

I think it turned out cute with smoke out of the chimney and the roof and ledges frosted up with Flowersoft.  The windows have a bit of glitter in them and the gum drops are sugared.  Inside the door is where I will write my message.  

This will be an adorable tag on my Gingerbread Cookie plates to give as gifts for the Holidays.  I have included the Gingerbread Cookie Recipe Below if you would like to try it out this Holiday Season.

Yummy! Your Gingerbread house looks good enough to eat!!! I love the pop of color from the lights peaking out of the snow covered roof top! You have truly captured the essence and I love the accents you've added like the lollipop bushes.
Hugs,
Antonella :-)
