- Next using your scissors, trim out the gingerbread design in the printable. Discard excess paper afterwards.
- Now you are ready to BAKE up your masterpieces with some decorating. Grab all your embellishments.
- Use the white puffy paint to outline the gingerbread design. This is the “icing” for your craft.
- If desired, shake some loose craft glitter on top of the wet paint.
- Next up – cut out a crown shape from gold paper and glue it onto her head.
- Follow that up by folding a cupcake liner in half and gluing it down for her tutu in the center.
- Finally, glue on the googly eyes, rhinestones and draw on a smile.
- When you are done decorating your pieces, go ahead and set them aside to let them dry completely.
- And that’s it! You now have a awesome paper gingerbread princess cookie to show off ALL season long! Remember – you can ALSO hole punch a hole at the top and turn her into a Christmas ornament with string!
