Gingerbread House Party

I have another party coming up in December, so I thought I would try to do two party entries for the Cuttlebug Challenge. This will be the third year I have hosted a Gingerbread House Party. I have a group of friends, "The Flip Flop Girls" and we meet at my house and decorate gingerbread houses in early December. It is a lot of fun! One of the "girls" has a December birthday, so we also celebrate her special day. I thought I would make a gingerbread "cookie" for the invitation. I found a chipboard shape book in the $1 bin at Michael's. I took it apart, traced around the shape on CS and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I then glued the CS to the chipboard. I cut "icing" out of cardstock, and added rhinestones and a bow. CS and ribbon are Hobby Lobby. Chipboard and rhinestones are Michael's.
