Valentine Gingerbread Angel Revisited


Valentine Gingerbread Angels Revisited

Christmas is over and my mind has turned towards late winter and spring crafting.  So last night after making several examples of one of my last year’s Valentine project, Gingerbread Angels, for a friend on Listia I decided to re-work the project.  The wings just don’t look right to me – maybe if the hearts making the wings were larger?   I set myself to ponder the matter and it didn’t take very long!

That’s because recently my eyes were opened to the infinite ways your punches can be used other than to just punch out the same old boring shapes.  See my Pinterest board Using Your Stampin Up Bird Punch for the examples of creative uses for a bird punch that inspired me.

So giving the desire to re-work the angel’s wings and my newly acquired punching skills I quickly came up with a punch to use – ok, it was the first punch I picked up but I did have to play around with it for a few minutes!!!  A cameo punch cut in half turned out to be perfect to give my baby Gingerbread Angel flight!

Here are photos and instructions for the newly designed wings.  Please take a minute or two to look at the old tutorial, Gingerbread Angels, as there are some good suggestions there and some tips to make this project without having the punches I used.

  • White cardstock
  • Pink or red cardstock
