I've been wanting to make a gingerbread house since last year...although I'm not much of a baker, I figured I could make one out of paper (You can make one too...click here for a pattern):
Cut along solid lines and fold along dotted lines. Add double stick tape to the 4 tabs on the main house...2 tabs on one side of the roof. The other side of the roof will remain unattached so you can add (and subtract) your treats:
Thread a ribbon through the 2 holes in house (above) close the roof and thread the ribbon through the 2 holes in the roof. I also added a tag...words are from MC-32 (From Our Home):
All the candy stamps are from MC-10 (Sweet Wishes) and MC-29 (Happy Trick or Treating). Here's the candy count: 22 chocolate bars (18 for roof and 4 for front door...to make the front door I cut a 1" x 1-7/8" card stock, glued 4 chocolate bars and rounded the edges), 6 round candies (for the roof), 9 gumdrops (I placed them along the bottom edge on all 4 sides), 2 candy canes and 1 peppermint.
Oh yeah...and I added the snowmen too...makes it look more homey...they are #C111 (Snowman Hi).
