Trees, snowflakes, and an adorable gingerbread man is included in this collection, many different ways to decorate and hang on your tree, put pictures in, or do whatever you can imagine to do with them. Not all ornaments are shown, just a sampling, I'm working on getting them on paperthreads if you want to buy it you can either keep checking to see if it's available, or e-mail me personally, and I can e-mail it to you, price is $10.99 for all of them in ai,wpc,gsd and of course knk.

Gingerbread man ornament

Here are the directions for cutting and decorating the gingerbread man. I cut the background out in a brownish/red paper, to resemble the color of gingerbread, the icing/top layer I cut out of white, then embossed it with UTEE, you can probably use a fine clear embossing powder, but you may have to emboss it twice to get the raised glossy look.
I tied a bow under his chin, drew on his mouth, and glued a small red rhinestone for his nose, used a 1/4" eylet for the hanger, and I just put it on the card with a ribbon through the hanger, so it can be snipped off and used as an ornament after the card has been sent. I did cut out a place for a picture from his tummy on some of them, so you can put a picture in it. You'll get the background, the 2nd layer, which has the hole cut out for a picture, the icing and also a shadow of the gingerbread man if you want to use it.

I'll post that as my free file in a few days, along with instructions on how I made him into an ornament. I'm cutting him out right now, so give me a few days before you check back.
