How are the gingerbread house patterns made?
All gingerbread house patterns are hand-drawn. No computer assisted drawing program is used. House designs are selected based on ease and complexity of how the house will actually work as a gingerbread house. Houses are ultimately chosen based on overall design and architecture, and ability to be built out of gingerbread. 

How are the gingerbread house patterns to be printed?
All gingerbread house patterns print on 8 1/2" x 11" paper. 

How do I make the gingerbread house pattern smaller?
Since all gingerbread house patterns print on 8 1/2" x 11" paper, BEFORE you cut-out the pattern pieces, simply take the pattern sheets to your local "copy-shop" and reduce on a copier to the desired size (example reduce 10%, 25%, etc).
