Gingerbread Man Treat Jar - Day 1

The Card A Day Blog's theme this week is Christmas Food.   The first thing I thought of was Gingerbread Cookies and my card inspiration this week is on Saturday so I thought I would have a week of Gingerbread Man ideas.  For today I have a Gingerbread Man Treat Jar. 

The red cardstock is 2 1/4" with the punched border and the pattern paper is 1 5/8".  Over that I wrapped a sheer 7/8' ribbon.  I stamped my sentiment in red and then layered them onto another punched cardstock.   

I used the From my Kitchen cartridge to cut the gingerbread man out of felt and sewed on a couple of button's with light weight yarn and a couple of beads for his eyes.

Thanks for stopping by.
