I Love Gingerbread







I made these cute little gingerbread men from Sculpey Chocolate 053 Polymer Clay. This is the first time I've ever made anything with polymer clay. I think the gingerbread men turned out so cute! I just love gingerbread! I can hardly wait to learn so more techniques to make stuff like peppermints. I'm envisioning little red Santa hats and candy canes for next year! From one small block of $2 clay I made well over 2 dozen gingerbread men. I made a dozen to become pins. Plus another dozen for the gift tags on the gifts in a jar. Mmm chocolate chip cookies! I also used the Friendship Jar die from Papertrey Ink and Snowflake embossing folder from Stampin'Up! for the tags.
I'm linking this project to http://forfunchallenges.blogspot.com/ for Christmas theme. Also to http://bellichallenge.blogspot.com/ for using Christmas themed embellishments. And finally to http://simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com/2010/12/simon-says-stamp-show-something-from.html for Something from Yesteryear.
