TIPS

- I recommend using cardstock from 65 lb / 176 gsm to 100 lb / 270 gsm. I used 80 lb to make the Gingerbread House Box.

- You could use double side tape instead of glue.

- The PDF file comes in a zipped folder, you need to unzip the PDF file to your computer first. On a Mac, just double click the zipped folder to unzip it. On a Windows PC, right click the zipped folder and choose Extract Here or Extract All.
