I whipped up a batch of gingerbread ornaments in the last couple of days and thought I’d share them here.

I’ve made these before but this particular batch is personalized – personalized ornaments are always well received!

Here’s what my workspace looked like (well, the finished batch – I would almost die if you saw the state of my craft room while I’m in mass production mode!) once I got them done:

…and then I made the tags so I could package them up:

Here’s a close up of an ornament (for a one-year old – most of the ornaments are more “traditional” colours):

…and here’s the packaging (cropping error but no time to re-edit!):

These really sparkle on a Christmas tree when it’s lit up.

I actually ran out of glassine bags for packaging – and eyes, and “buttons” for the tags.  I did get some glassine bags on Tuesday that I ordered on Etsy and I couldn’t source more eyes locally so I’ve ordered some flat backed pearls but they’re coming from Hong Kong so I don’t know how long it will take to get them.  (I ordered a 2-year supply so I’m all set for next year for sure!)
