I whipped up a "batch" of gingerbread themed Curvy Keepsake favours that would be perfect for gifting a couple of small homemade gingerbread cookies.
Isn't this little couple just adorable? I think they came out rather cute. Best of all, whether you want to make a boy or girl, the pieces needed are identical, the assembly just differs slightly.
For the boy; add the bow at the neckline for a"bow tie" look and 2 pieces of icing trim at the top of the head for hair.
For the girl, place the bow on the head and move the trim to the neckline for a necklace. And if you like, add some eyelashes.
Either favour/wrapper can hold a few goodies, such as 2 cookies placed in a little clear bag, or as shown below, 2 peppermint patties.
Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler - both SU
Die: Curvy Keepsake - SU
Punches: see instructions below
Misc: white gel pen, black marker
Also a little note. I have found a much better way to cut the Curvy Keepsake pieces needed for these treat wrappers that results in a seamless bottom piece which expands a little further to accommodate a thicker gift item.
Start by cutting a 3" wide strip from an 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock; your piece should be 3" x 8.5"
Fold this piece in half on the long side, so you end up with a piece that is 3" x 4.25" and then cut the Curvy Keepsake die shape with the fold is at the bottom.
The cut piece should look like this:
Now just trim the excess on the side as shown.
Fold on score lines, and then glue the top "handles" together. Your favor shape is now ready to finish.
