Gingerbread Inchie Pendant Trays

These gingerbread pendants just need to be threaded with a narrow piece of red ribbon, and perhaps a bead and they will be ready to hang on the tree
They measure one inch square, with a background made up of a white glitter and snow patterned papers.
The puffy, slightly metallic, gingerbread man stickers came from Hobbycraft last year, this year sadly their Christmas stickers have been pants  ….. in fact I just haven’t bought any from them!
Once the gingerbread men were in position I flooded the pendant with Anita’s 3D, clear, glossy dimensional finish, which, when set,  the gingerbread man stand everso slightly proud, but with a seamless finish, giving an almost enamelled effect.
I am hoping that next year someone pulls their fingers out sticker wise, however I think I am going to start looking farther a field for my supplies in the coming year, most probably to China ….. you may have to wait an extra week or two for them to arrive, but you just can’t compare choice and prices ….. and I get to work with something different, that perhaps other people may not have.

These look fab. I can just imagine them hanging on a tree and looking ever so Christmassy. Have a wonderful holiday. Your home must look amazing with all the wonderful things you have made!

These are adorable Helen! The only stickers worth a second look this year were those lovely robins you gave us a heads up on - which I unashamedly used but gave you full credit for of course. Maybe a trip back to the USA? :)

Hi Helen. What cute gingerbread men. They do look like they are enamelled don't they. Getting supplies from abroad will certainly mean that your projects will be something really different, and that is what people want isn't it? Happy sticker hunting : ) Take care.
