Gingerbread Christmas Pressie....

Evening All!
Eeeeeeeeeeee are we all excited for Christmas Eve Eve to go & for it to be Christmas Eve???
I thought I would share with you a present idea, I have made one for my Mam & Dad & one for my best friends Mam & Dad. I was going to make boxes of gingerbread men but I was in Home Bargains & I came across these brown paper lunch bags & I thought "Hmmmmmmm would my ginger men look FAB in there!" So I set about decorating them.

I used red & white card stock from my stash, the Merry Christmas greeting is one of my fave's those little 99p sets, LOADS of glitter glue Diamond stickles (I think!) & Martha Stewart doily hearts punch, the FABALOUS Gingerbread man image is from Pink Gem Designs & I have colored him with Pro Markers.
I made a tag with the same image & card & used red organza ribbon which I got from my last trip to Hobby craft on Tuesday.

Now onto the gingerbread Men - Mmmmmmm they are delish!
I made them today & have iced their eyes, gave them little red hearts & swiggles on their arms & legs! Why do they have swiggles on them I wonder??? Anyone know???

I do hope they like them.......I made Snowmen shaped ones too but I went a wee bit OTT with the icing on them ha ha ha
