HI! Happy Holidays to all of you!! I am here again to share an idea I came up with for an adorable personalized gingerbread house photo gift box. I had this gift box kit with several unique shaped boxes included. I began with a box with a top that looked like this because I thought this would work the best for a adding a roof.
I put the box together and created a roof with an extra piece of cardboard.
I began adding embellishments and pictures to make it look more like a house.
The roof balances nicely on the top. I intend to use it as a piece of holiday decor. You could however fill it up and gift it to a Grandparent, Teacher, Aunt, Uncle, or Friend.
My girls were so excited to see themselves on their very own gingerbread house!

It is hard to come up with a layout that you love that includes more than one or two photos! I know! I created this versatile layout for 4 4X6 photos. I hope to give you an idea for getting all your Christmas (or any other) photos out of their boxes and onto the pages of your scrapbooks for everyone to see!
I am guilty!! I have several years worth of pictures to scrap and most of my pages have only one or two pictures on them. At that rate, I will NEVER catch up!! It was time to come up with a layout that will display more than one or two photos at a time.
I found that if I took four 4X6 photos and laid them out in a square formation like this they fit with a perfect one inch border.
I placed the word Christmas between the pages to bring the viewer's eye together to see this as one layout.
A few other embellishments really brought this layout together!
Have fun with it! You could even use one box for journaling and use 7 pictures! This layout can be used for any event that you have numerous photos for that you want to get out of their boxes and onto the page!!
