Mini House Boxes

If I had to pick one favorite thing about Christmas, it might be Gingerbread houses. Or presents. But Gingerbread houses as presents – that is the best! These little Gingerbread house boxes are simple to make, and fun for the kids to decorate – without all the calories (unless you tuck chocolate inside – that is up to you)!

Print out or cut out these boxes on your silhouette, decorate with a white marker, and use to give little candies or other gifts!

Supplies:
Brown Paper
House Printable or Silhouette cut file
Scissors or Sihouette
White paint pen or white crayon
Hot Glue
Ribbon

Cut out the house shape.

Cut a ribbon to tie the top, and fill with treats. I found these Hershey kisses shaped like Santa Hats – aren’t they adorable?
