- An 8-oz. milk carton, empty and clean

- Tape or staple the spout of carton closed.
- Using the white frosting as glue, stick graham crackers onto sides and top of carton.

- Use different sized milk cartons to make an entire city. - Ice cream cones can be covered in green frosting to make Christmas trees. - Decorate with small red candies for holly berries or sprinkles to make Christmas trees. - You might want to practice a few times with this recipe before trying to construct a Gingerbread Stonewall Jackson Inn! - Don’t eat the milk cartons. They are very hard to digest!
