How to Make 3D Gingerbread House to Color Step By Step
STEP ONE – Trim the Gingerbread Template to Size
Download and print our coloring gingerbread house on your preferred paper. We like this Bright White Cardstock. Color or decorate the gingerbread house to your liking. Using the Trim and Score Board, trim the gingerbread house down to size starting with the longest cuts. Be precise and leave any rounded or intricate cuts for your scissors.
STEP TWO – Score and Fold All Tabs
Our 3D gingerbread house templates have dashed lines to indicate where the folds will be. Use the Scoring Tool to gently score along these dashed lines on your Trim and Score Board. Scoring makes folding easier and much more tidy.
STEP THREE – Fold The House and Tape Together
Carefully fold the body of the gingerbread house. Make sure your folds are nice and sharp. Apply Double Sided Tape tape along the tab. You can also use a quick setting glue here but double sided tape is more forgiving and doesn’t require clamping and holding time for the glue to dry.
STEP FOUR – Fold the Roof & Bottom of Gingerbread House
If you want to add small Christmas gifts to the gingerbread house be sure to do that before before you seal the bottom. If you have any loose areas that aren’t staying closed you can use a little bit of scotch tape to seal everything up more tightly.
