A little time to mini

This is another one of those crazy weeks here but I did find time to make this little gingerbread house. I needed to replace the one that the puppy ate several months ago. Apparently, she did me a favor because I like this one much better, lol.

Soooo sweet!!!! I am going to try to make one of these for my dollhouse this year- I have a template, but can I ask you- did you use that puffy paint/slick paint- would that work if I used that? The peppermint is clay, isn't it? If you have any tips for me I would be very very grateful :)

Mine is all clay, Kim, except for the mirror base. And I covered that with clay, too, so you could use any wood or metal disk for the base as long as it was safe for low temperatures in the oven. I think you could use the puffy paint, too. I just used polymer clay and added texture to the snow and trees with a needle tool. In one of my Christmas rooms, I used a tiny plastic house and painted it like a gingerbread house. I used tiny scrapbooking brads for the candy and glued them on. I don't think there's a right or wrong way to do it, thank goodness. I'd forever be doing the wrong way, lol.
