The Steps for How to Make the Easy Paper Crafts: Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Woman:

Print the Easy Paper Crafts Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Woman Pattern.

Cut around the gingerbread man and gingerbread woman pattern pieces.

Select the paper for the gingerbread.

I used craft paper, but a paper bag, construction paper or other type of paper works just as well.

Hint, if your paper is not flat, iron it with a dry iron. My craft paper was curled into a cone shape. A minute or two with a hot, dry iron flattened the paper.

Use the hole punch to make small circles for the mouth, eyes, buttons and polka dots.

Cut 1/4 inch strips of paper for waist bands, stripes and ruffles.

Cut small triangles for a bow tie.

This gingerbread man has a red shirt, a red tie and red pants.

The gingerbread woman has a lime green blouse and lime green skirt with a ruffled edge.

Fold the strip of paper back and forth to make the simple ruffled edge.

His buttons are white, hers are lime green.

To make a chain, use the hole punch to make holes in the gingerbread man and gingerbread woman hands

Tie the hands together loosely with yarn bows to make a gingerbread chain.

Of course, if time is an issue, simply print the  Easy Paper Crafts Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Woman Pattern and let children color the shapes.

On a color printer the pattern prints in a ginger color.

The gingerbread man and gingerbread woman shapes make great package tags especially for gifts either to children or from children.

Make a gingerbread man and gingerbread woman as a garland to stretch across a wall or above a bed in a child's room.

This project can be fun for children and adults alike.

Have fun!

Make one or many of this inexpensive, fast and Easy Paper Crafts Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread woman for fun and whimsy any time of the year.
