Let the papering begin

Let the papering begin! A few years ago I would of never thought of papering these. I would of found my brushes, sat down and painted them. I am so happy that I covered these with paper. I do not have to wait for the paint to dry! And I can just imagine all the time I would of spent with the detailing. I love paper!
A little beige colored edging where the white rik-rak would go and a few red hearts, just for fun.

Next, I added blue buttons for the eyes. I did not really care for the red hearts, they were too matchy matchy with the red lips. They were replaced with multi colored paper hearts. I like them so much more.

Next, I replaced the blue buttons with orange buttons. The dark color made the gingerbread man look a little mean. Yes, this version is much friendlier.

All it needed was a the red ribbon and he is ready to be put on a Christmas package.

Putting him up against a green plant, makes me think I will make a few for ornaments, too.
I was able to get six more gingerbread men today. They ended up costing just 59 cents a piece, I love a bargain!
Thanks for visiting!
