I made this joyful Christmas banner to hang on a lonely wall that is waiting for me to finish some shelves....
The gingerbread man shapes were cut using my Cricut Expression and the "In my Kitchen" cartridge.
I did a brave thing (for me) and cut up some of my very favorite paper, October Afteroon's "Very Merry" paper collection. I love love love the pretty patterns and colors.
Each gingerbread man is made up of one layer of Papertrey Ink kraft cardstock and one layer of patterned paper. The cardstock makes it sturdier.
I made the crepe paper medallions using party steamers... The letters were cut using the Country life cricut cartridge. They were glittered with german glitter glass. I had to use a lot of glossy accents to get that glitter to stick.
I sewed seam binding ribbon to each gingerbread man arm and tied them all together in bows.
Voila, C'est fini!
Is anyone interested in a tutorial for the medallion?
