We're all crazy about The Great British Bake Off, and what better way to celebrate with this inspired make from Alex Turner. Alex shows us how she created this fabulous project using the Gingerbread Man Mini Die from Xcut which can be purchased from http://www.hobbybase.co.uk/gingerbread-man-cutting-die-set.html

Christmas Baking Recipe

  1. Mount a piece of gold pearl card on to a 7x7 inch Kraft card base.
  2. Attached a piece of pattern paper cut to 6 ¾” x 4”. I have used Dovecraft 8x8 Glad Tidings paper stack.
  3. Add some ribbon, also from Dovecraft and tie an extra piece to form the bow.
  4. Cut a piece of silver pearl card to 5”x3 ½”, round the corners with a corner punch, and scored at ½” on each side
  5. Die cut the Gingerbread Man in bronze pearl card and also in white card. Use the white pieces to fill in the eyes, nose, mouth and piped detail on his arms and legs. Also cut the little buttons and bow tie.
  6. Repeat twice more until you have 3 Gingerbread Men. Attach all 2 to your baking tray, adding the bow ties and buttons as you go.
  7. Attach the baking tray to the front of your card and add the sentiment and embellishments of your choice. I have used X-Cut Seasonal Sentiments in the same card as the baking tray.
