Gingerbread Dough

A good friend of mine saw this post on Pinterest 
and asked me if I could make her something like it.  My friend thought they would be perfect for her nieces and nephews.

I thought it was really cute! 
Well... the first thing that came to my mind was my Silhouette Portrait. Sure enough, there were lots of Gingerbread men! I picked one and got started! I added Liquid Applique as icing, rhinestones for their bellies and a red polka dot bow tie. I copied the poem onto white cardstock with my computer and cut them out with Spellbinder's Labels 8 dies. The pretty paper is from Stampin Up!

And this is what I came up with!

Clear bag example:

Green Polka Dot bag

Here is a close up of the poem:

I am not sure which one I like the best!

Thanks for stopping by!!
