Christmas in July

Here is a project that I made for a Christmas in July contest over at exploring!
I created this adorable gingerbread house treat box using the cricut sweet tooth boxes and gingerbread cartridges! I honestly can't tell you where the paper is from because it was in my Christmas stash!
The house is cut at 10 inches and when fully assembled measures 6.5 x 3.5x 7 inches, so it is rather large and will hold lots of home baked cookies or other goodies! The gingerbread boy and girl are cut at 3 inches. I also added a little trim on the bottom using a fiskars border punch.
I didn't use all of the layers that would normally cut out with the house. I didn't use the grass, the flower boxes or flowers because I wanted it to be a gingerbread house!
My daughter loves this house so much..she does lots of baking! She has already asked me to make a load of them for her Christmas cookies to give to family, friends and teachers for the holiday! So, I will get a head start on these for her so I'm not rushing at the last minute!
I just love the idea of Christmas in July!!
Thanks for stopping by!
