Teeny Tiny Gingerbread House

Howdy!  I wanted to share a quick little treasure with you.  {smile}  I made several jar toppers again this year, for the holiday craft fairs.  I have some churches, schools, sweet shoppes, Santa's workshops, and gingerbread houses.  These little treasures sit inside a clear plastic dome on top of a mason jar.  It's an easy way to dress up a 'gift in a jar'.  {smile}
I wanted to share the gingerbread house with you.  Here is the one I made for a dear, sweet friend, who collects gingerbread houses and uses that theme to decorate her home for the holidays.  {smile}

These are truly teeny tiny.  They measure 1 1/2 inches across, one inch deep, and 1 1/2 inches tall.  Yes, teeny tiny!  But oh so sweet!  The house is hand-stamped, along with the peppermint patties, and  candy canes at the front door.  The windows are die cut twice to dress them up.  {smile}

The chimney is hand stamped and popped out to give the little house some dimension.  {smile}.  The back of the house looks very similar to the front, minus the door.  I used classic kraft ink to stamp the house panels.  I used timber brown staz-on to stamp the chimney, and real red classic ink to stamp the 'candy' pieces.  I used scor tape (1/8") and liquid adhesive to hold the tiny house together.
Thank you for looking {smile}.  I will try to remember to photograph some finished jar toppers and share them with you.  I'm finishing up a few more craft items for this weekends arts and craft fair.  Fingers crossed, everything goes well today! {smile}
