Here is a ginger bread house you can enjoy year after year....because it's paper. The cotton candy smoke is poly fil, the candy on top is painted wooden balls and the lollypops and peppermints are mini ornaments. The white icing is a liquid applique that puffs up. The rest is paper, including the candy canes. I used velum for the window, so you can put a little light inside and it shines through.
