This Vectric project is a cute little cookie bin container, styled to resemble an old-fashioned gingerbread house. Great to store cookies, crackers, snacks, nuts, candy or other goodies!
The house can be finished any way you like – I’ve shown the sample here with a natural shellac finish. Another possibility is to make it a “biscuit tin” by applying pewter-color metallic paint, then glaze it with a black paint or stain to make it look like an antique. I’ll be painting mine with colorful acrylic craft paints and paint pens, at the request of the grandkids!
One half of the roof hinges open to gain access to your goodies, and the roof panels do require the cutting of a couple simple miter joints.
The finished dimensions of the assembled Gingerbread House are about: 10″W x 9″ D x 9″H.
This free Vectric Project requires Aspire 4 or higher.
