When I was young my mother would take me to the Festival of Lights in Atlanta, GA. This is where you would see all things Christmas and they would have amazing gingerbread house contest. I was always amazed by them and wanted to try making my own. I had a little time this year and I decided to go for it!
I found a traditional Victorian home on Pinterest to model my gingerbread house after and created a 3-D model of it in the free version of Sketch-up. Since I had a floor plan of the home, but not an image of all the sides, I had to make up some of the roof and back of the house. I have a time lapse video that shows step-by-step how I made it!
