Last November I made an Advent Calendar for my daughter that combined applique and embroidery and papercrafting. I loved it so much I wanted to keep it! The Gingerbread House was a Bucilla Kit and I used a Tim Holtz Configuration Book to store the 24 ornaments that hang on the house to countdown to Christmas.
This is the main house. It is quite large - 18" x 23". The ornaments hang from the red sequins.
So many sequins to sew...!!!
The ornaments included gingerbread people, candies and wreaths. Here they are nestled in the decorated configurations book:

I used an assortment of Tim Holtz products and techniques to decorate the book.
