This Christmas Scrapbook Layout Is Baking Spirits Bright With a Gingerbread House Craft

Sweet, spicy, full of Christmas spirit and style… gingerbread houses! Did you know an early form of gingerbread can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Egyptians who used it for ceremonial purposes? And another fun tidbit: The popularity of gingerbread houses rose in the 1800s when the Brothers Grimm wrote the (well, not-so-Christmassy) fairytale of Hansel and Gretel, as the two children stumble upon a house made entirely of sweets. Well, no matter the history, these cookie-walled structures are a creative and tasty way to celebrate the Christmas season for kids and adults alike by decorating them with frostings and icings, gumdrops, festive sprinkles, peppermints, chocolates other candied elements. And whether you’re building the house from scratch or using a kit, blog contributor Kylie Kingham has a Christmas scrapbook layout with a cute gingerbread house craft to pay homage to the sweetly spiced tradition!
