We often see art and crafts reflecting the world around us. That is because art often borrows from nature and the world. A gable is the generally triangular portion of a wall between the lines of a sloping roof.

Gable on House

This gable architecture design is used in this Gable Box Template from The Cutting Cafe. I used the template to make a couple treat boxes for Christmas. The box measures 4.5 by 3.75 by 2.75 inches. This is just the size of the bottom portion of the box. The actual height from top to bottom is approx. 5.25 inches. The file comes with various decorative handles and window openings. Be sure to check The Cutting Cafe blog for more ideas. This Gable Box is easy to assemble, so you can get the kids involved and make one for every one in the family!
