Gingerbread house and happy new year!

"Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man." -Benjamin Franklin

Hi friends! I haven't updated in a long time.

As you may have noticed, I have a new website. The wordpress system was driving me crazy and I decided to go back to the classic and static blogger :-) It also has a more personal tone, for now I like it a lot.

Although I am well aware that it is not Christmas anymore, I had yet to finish this gingerbread house model. The same thing happens to me every year, I intend to do a thousand things for Christmas and I just can't finish them. Does it happen to you too?

Gingerbread houses are not a tradition in my country (I wish), but I find them delightful. I hope you enjoy it!

PREVIOUS STEPS AND MATERIALS: For optimal results, I recommend printing your models in thick paper of 160g and above (home printers usually accept this type of paper). As for the tools, you will need a craft cutter, a ruler and glue. Scissors can make things easier for you but are not mandatory.

STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:
