For years I’ve made applesauce cinnamon gingerbread boys to hang in the garland in my kitchen. It’s an every year thing and I started to think about doing it with my Cricut. Now if I had a Cricut Cake, I might make the dough and cut it with the Cricut cake, but I don’t. Any body out there game for this?
Since I only have the Expression, I pulled out some nice gingery brown cardstock and the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge, set my expression at 3 1/2” and cut the boy and girl gingerbread people.
For the girl I cut 1 of the brown cardstock, 1 red, and one of chipboard. I removed the head, arms, and legs of the red which left me with the dress. I also took a piece of green cardstock and glued it behind the two hearts on the skirt so that you can’t see through it and so that I could add some green glitter glue. Then I assembled the three pieces.
Before I slipped a length of ribbon between the brown cardstock and the chipboard, then I pressed the two pieces closed.
See this stuff! I’ve had it forever! I use it whenever I want something to look like it’s got snow or icing. Works great!
See! It looks great. I still have to add the bow and the glitter hearts on the gingerbread girls. I also used black stickles dots for the eyes.
The little boys were less work but they still turned out great.
From here I did the same things as for the gingerbread girls except where the hearts are I added little red buttons.
I still have several little bits of magic I am going to add to these and my kitchen, and I‘ll post pictures of the whole kitchen. Until then . . .
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . .
