Gingerbread Man

Morning all, just a quick post from me as I have to dash out shortly and I just realised the challenge that motivated me to play finishes today.

A while ago I bought a pack of shaped kraft boxes and of course they got put in the cupboard and were forgotten about.. so when I saw the 'christmas but not a card' challenge I remembered this gingerbread man and thought it was time he got dressed up a bit. I used my last tiny piece of red check ribbon for his scarf, card candi for his buttons, Liquid Pearls for the 'icing' and for a bit of fun I decided to give him 'googly' eyes. I know the 'icing' isn't very good but them I'm no good at icing cakes either!

and here's another

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Winter Wonderland challenge 'anything but a card'
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge 'merry and bright'
Rudolph Days challenge 'christmas card or project'
Crafty Ribbons challenge 'anything goes'
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'christmas'
Fab 'n' Funky challenge 'christmas'

Thanks for popping by today and I really hope to be a better blogger and catch up with you all soon.


  1. This little fellow is so darn cute. Wouldn't it look wonderful stuffed full of gingerbread men! Layers of parchment and tissue to protect them! Bet they would even survive mailing to Canada...ahahahaha

  2. A fun shaped box Andrea, he made me smile.
