Happy Sunday!!!!

Happy Sunday everyone!!!!
Today was my day to post a project to the AC Bailey Blog and I wanted to share my project with all of you!!
I just love the cute little gingerbread man and I think he will be very cute hanging up in my kitchen during the holidays!!!!

Gingerbread Man Banner

2. Glue cardstock stars to chipboard bases.
3. Cut stars out of patterned paper and then cut all the points off of the star as shown and distress with ink.
4. Trace the inside of the star onto your choice of corresponding patterned paper.

4. Cut ¾ inch strips of patterned paper and punch with a border punch and distress with ink.

5. Attach the border strips and the star points to each of the stars as shown.

6. Add stitching with an American Crafts Slick Writer.

7. Trace Gingerbread Man onto Craft Cardstock and Ink.

  1. Embellish Gingerbread Men with ribbons and buttons. Glue to stars.
  2. Add sentiment: I used the Jillibean Corrugated Kraft Alphas.
  3. Add any embellishments of your choice.
  4. String together with Jute and add ribbons and smaller cardboard and cardstock stars.
  5. Patterns for the Gingerbread I am more than happy to share the patterns for the stars and gingerbread man-email me at if you are intersted.
