Gingerbread Man

I was sitting here at my desk half listening while the girls watched a movie and started looking around for inspiration for something to punch.  Grabbed the basket with our Christmas Cards and saw one that had a tiny gingerbread man on it with a big polka-dot bow.  So I started with the bow thinking that might come in handy sometime and before I was finished I had the gingerbread man too.

Here is a little pictorial "how to" on the bow
two Large Ovals
1 inch Circle - cut flat on the sides
two Full Heart
two Wide Oval trimmed in on end

Sponged edges and start assembly

and here it is on the gingerbread man

Gingerbread man is all wide ovals except the head is approx 2 inch circle with Circle Scissor Plus
Icing is Scalloped Square - re-punched offsetting the scallops to get rick-rack effect
Cheeks are the new Small Heart (available Jan 5)
