The base of this little gingerbread man pin is made of balsa wood. I rubber stamped the PSX gingerbread man onto brown/kraft sticker paper using white embossing powder and my heat gun. I decided on white embossing because I wanted the gingerbread man to look like it had iced frosting. The red polka dotted circle is a glossy raised sticker. I used embroidery thread for the tie around the neck.
I cut out around the gingerbread man and then applied the sticker paper to a piece of balsa wood. I cut the balsa wood around the image with an exact-o knife and then sanded the edges with a white foam sanding block that you can buy at a beauty supply store. Then I tied the bow and added a pin backing. The pin is 2 1/2 inches long.
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all.
