The Love Shack


Do you have a ton of gingerbread dough left over from Christmas?  Ya, me too.  (Does anyone actually eat the gingerbread cookies?)


So rather than toss it out, we baked it into a Valentine-inspired gingerbread house.

I made my own templates out of a cereal box bound for the recycling. 


I rolled out the dough, traced and cut the pieces and then I baked them.  I let them sit for a few days so they would dry out and be a little sturdier.






A little hot glue later, we put all the pink, red and white candy we could find on it.
