Gingerbread House Card Rack

I've been making my toast rack-style card racks for three seasons now - so I thought I'd ramp things up a little and try something different to the ususal domed shape (Toast Rack Card Racks 2014). I've tweaked the design of the rack to resemble a gingerbread house. 

The Gingerbread House Card Rack is made in pretty much the same way as my original design - make the slotted body first, then pop in the ends. The difference for this style being that you must crease some additional folds to create the house shape. Tip: score the fold lines in the toast rack body before cutting out the slots. And... when you do fold the rack, place a metal ruler along the scored line as you fold all the slots simultaneously. 

The eaves of the roof of the Gingerbread house project beyond the toast rack. There are two versions of the toast rack ends: basic gingerbread house and gingerbread house with its owner/occupier on the doorstep.
