Thanks for popping in.
We fully intended to swing by the TV Studios
en route to Harrogate yesterday,
and pick up the House Tem-Plate Art Samples
to display at the Harrogate Show today.
But traffic was dire, and so we had to give it up.
So I thought,
why don’t I just blog a little sample of how it works,
and then show you a few of the beauties which were made by our very talented Design Team.
So here goes.
You need A4 parchment to do our tem-plates.
I went with an ivory colour here.
So once you have the shape, then you can either go with the Tudor house, exactly as Jim designed it on the large Tem-Plate…
…or you can get out the additional Gingerbread House or Swiss Cottage Border Plates, and create your very own Grand Designs!
Look! And no planning permission required!!!
You can add your finishing touches;
whitework on the little hearts,
Spot the gingerbread man in the doorway!
A little drop shadow on the roof tiles.
Do all your decorating and embellishing.
Then cut out, fold and assemble.
Or cut it out first – whichever feels right for you.
It really is a piece of cake.
You can make it as simple or intricate as your time and skills will permit!
Mine is as simple as it gets really.
But it will be perfect as a little table decoration on Christmas Eve.
I just need a couple more to make a wee gingerbread hamlet!
Oh! Hang on!! We have a LOAD of them!!
I bet our lovely Design Team friends won’t mind us borrowing a few for one night !!
Let’s check them out….
Good enough to eat or move into!!
Have a great evening,
and think of us glamorous folks,
trundling back down the M11 in our white stretch limo.
Love & Hugs,
