For today I also have a Glue Arts project to share with you..
You may be tempted to eat this one, it's so very delicious with all the beautiful 'icing' glitter and gorgeous papers, but I can assure you, it's far better to leave it up and share it with everyone LOL!!

1. Cover gingerbread men using patterned paper and High Tac Adhesive. Trim edges and sand lightly, ink all edges using brown ink and makeup sponges.
2. Use chalk to rub pink cheeks on all gingerbread shapes.
3. Adhere wiggle eyes and red pearl noses to faces.
4. Use white fabric paint to add mouth and 'icing' decoration around outside of gingerbread shape. While wet, sprinkle lightly with glitter. Dry throughly.
5. Make accordions with patterned paper, glue to each gingerbread shape in the middle.
6. Repunch holes in hands with exacto knife, then use ribbon to tie all shapes together. Add layered buttons to twine and knot onto ribbon. Then using Hot Glue Gun adhere berry stems to backsides of buttons. Stems can be pre-curled around pencil for shape.
7. Use punchouts, patterned paper fussy cut shapes, buttons/twine, and glittered flowers to add decoration to each accordion medallion, using Hot Glue for each item.
8. Add tulle knots for gingerbread girl hair bow, using Hot Glue.
Designer Tip- I prefer Hot Glue for some holiday home decor projects, it holds up well with temperature changes once my decor is packed up and stored. If you find you have a lot of glue strings, simply take a heat gun or hot hair dryer to your project and lightly allow the air to go across your creation. It will melt the little strings easily.
Thanks for dropping by and have a terrific day!
