How cute! I have made larger cardboard gingerbread houses in the past as table decoration, but never thought of making little ones for the tree. Such a great idea. The "icing" on these houses looks fantastic!

I wonder if one could glue small pieces of candy or maybe beads or something like that to them? They're really cute the way they are, though. I remember making a real gingerbread house once upon a time, and what a job that was! This looks like all the fun without the hassle.

I remember my sons making these in school. They are simple to make, and no baking required! The designer has included the templates for the house, as well as a photo tutorial and step by step instructions for its construction. The only thing not included are instructions for decorating, but that should be unique anyway.
