I am still creating from the brown paper bags we have on hand (see last week's post) and I came up with the idea to make simple gingerbread men to use as tags and to top my gifts. The brown paper is the PERFECT color to resembles gingerbread!

This is such an easy little project that even I was able to whip up a big batch of gingerbread men while taking care of little Lucy!

I started by drawing the outline of a gingerbread man- if you have a cookie cutter you could also trace around it.
