Looking for a last minute idea for gifts? We’re sharing our love of the Gingerbread Baby with others this holiday season. Reaching out to our neighbors, teachers, friends, and coworkers with a little Gingerbread Love.; You can join us too!
Gingerbread Man Gift Wrap
Grab a piece of brown paper, some leftover scrapbook paper or buttons, and a yummy chocolate bar and let’s go!
First cut the brown paper and wrap your chocolate bar. The best part is that this can work on boxes and books too! Then it’s time to cut out a circle for the head and 4 long oval shapes for the arms and legs.
We used a lid to create our circle on colorful scrapbook paper. Then my daughter drew on the button holes. You could also use real buttons for an added touch. She also added the frosting to the arms ands legs but just cutting the paper in wavy lines.
Now our Gingerbread Man is complete and ready to be giving to someone special in our lives. I’m very lucky to work with a very creative coblogger that I always get to “Spin” my ideas off of. This Gingerbread Gift Wrap was inspired by Amanda’s Bear and Snowman Gift Wrap.
