They are the wooden gingerbread men I bought from HobbyCraft last year but never got round to using, except for one. They came in packs of 4 for £1, which I thought was brilliant enough, but they were also on a 3 for 2 offer – so in the end I ended up buying six packs, 24 gingerbread men – working out at about 17p each, bargaintastic!
As I said, last year I only “played” with one (above) but I wasn’t that happy with him, the proportions of the ribbon, eyes and buttons I used were just not quite right http://itsallfiddlefart.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/wooden-gingerbread-man-tag.html, so this year I was determined to get them right …. using a narrower ribbon and sourcing better flat backed gems for the eyes and mini buttons for the body.
….. and I think I much prefer this years version, which can either be used as a gift tag or tree decoration.
They are now all packaged up and waiting for a new home ….. and another few bits of my humungous Christmas stash are finally used up!!
