I made a cute little gingerbread Pin for the Holidays today.
It's adorable and really easy to do. Here is a list of supplies you will need.
Small crafting scissor
2 paper lunch bags, or brown wrapping paper
An image of a gingerbread man ( you can get this off the internet, as long as it is not copyrighted)
hot fix crystal setter
hot fix crystals
First find a colorful image of a gingerbread man, download it and print it off
cut the image out ( there is a picture of the gingerbread man I used)
take the image and cut 4 gingerbread men out of the paper bags
Take the glue stick and glue the four brown gingerbread men to the back of the colored image.
NOW THE FUN BEGINS,
take your gingerbread man to the sewing machine and sew the outline of the man with a coordinating thread, I used white to sew along the vest jacket of my lil man. You can use what goes with your lil man.
Then use your hot fix tool to attach crystals to the front of the gingerbread man.
Seal completely with Mod Podge- give several coats and coat the edges of the gingerbread man too.
When the gingerbread man is semi dry- and no longer tacky, place a book over the gingerbread man so that he flattens out. Give him a few coats
and once this little Guy ( or girl) is dried, apply your pin back to the back of the gingerbread man.
If you want to use this as an ornament you can also do that by attaching a small piece of ribbon to the back of it. You can also use this as gift tag.
