Supplies You'll Need to Make This:

• Paper: card stock - 175 gsm or higher recommended

• Adhesive: Hot glue and Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue

•Ribbon, up to 1/2" wide (to hold the lid on the house)

Assembly Instructions:

1. Gently fold the fold lines of the main box piece, door piece, and the center fold line on the main roof piece. We will fold the rest of the fold lines on the roof later. 2. It’s easiest to decorate all the front, side, and back panel pieces before they are attached to the main box, so we’ll do that next. For this, I’ll be using my Tombow Mono Multi glue. Attach the side frosting pieces, snowflake piece, and top frosting piece to the front panel. 3. Next, attach the windows to the side panels and the back panel. 4. Next, attach the now decorated front, side, and back panels to the main box piece, attaching each panel with equal spacing around it. 5. Now assemble the main box piece. For this, I’m using hot glue. 6. Attach each roof backer piece to the back side of the main roof piece, making sure to align the ribbon holes and keep from covering the fold lines on the main roof piece. Then fold the rest of the fold lines on the roof. 7. Attach the door piece to the front of the box in the area within the scalloped edges. 8. Fill the box with all your goodies and treats :) 9. Finally, it’s time to attach the roof on the box. Cut your length of ribbon (I find 30.5” to be a good length) and center the box over the length of ribbon with the front of the box facing forward. Put one end of the ribbon up through the ribbon hole in one side of the roof, then do the same with the other end of the ribbon and other side of the roof. 10. Carefully slide the roof down the ribbon to fit over the box, trying to keep each end of the ribbon pretty equal. With the roof snug with the box, but not overly tight, tie a bow at the peak of the roof.
