Gingerbread Men Christmas Tags

I love gingerbread men, and I think Iris’s love for them too has got my creative juices going ……… so today I have bought you some gingerbread man Christmas tags.
Gingerbread men Christmas TagsAfter cutting the gingerbread men out, I put a scrap of red spotted paper behind the hearts, faux stitched round the edges with a white gel pen, gave them eyes, using tiny domed stickers and finally a red bow.
