Christmas is Right Around the Corner ...

Gingerbread Man clip art www.clipartandcrafts.comGinger Bread Man Ornaments
Or at least it seems that way to me. The stores are filled with all sorts of goodies for Trick or Treat and right next to them are all the Christmas decorations. It seems a bit early, but then again, to keep from getting stressed out I do like to start my holiday crafts around this time of year.

Use this clip art to make paper craft decorations. You can also use this basic design as a pattern for a cute Gingerbread Man Tree Ornament. He's easy to make from sandpaper and recycled cereal boxes plus a few snippets from the sewing basket or craft bin.
