Stand your gingerbread man up…

After all the drawing and decorating is done it’s time to cut your gingerbread people out. This is so, so much easier than cookie dough.

Simply cit along all the edges, including the rectangular band at the bottom of the gingerbread template if you’d like the figure to stand up on it’s own. If you want just the gingerbread man feel free to cut the rectangle off and just use the cookie shape.

Loop the rectangle at the bottom around to meet behind your gingerbread man and secure with tape. This creates a base that will allow your gingerbread cookie person to stand up their own.

These printable gingerbread men and gingerbread women create an adorable display!
