Project of the Week: Personalized Gingerbread Family Ornaments

Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I already had an order for Gingerbread Family Ornaments that were personalized with the family’s names. I’m just now getting around to editing the photos of those ornaments, so I thought it was high time I share.

I struggled long and hard figuring out where to put the names. The brown of the gingerbread people’s bodies is too dark for the text to show well, and while I could use the girls’ skirts as a text location, the boys’ vests aren’t big enough. After much sketching, erasing, and resketching, I finally settled on adding a small white badge under each figure and putting the name there. I must say I’m pleased with how they turned out.

The Christmas orders are starting to roll in – super exciting! I have many more new items to make available online, and those will be showing up in my shop over the next week or so. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
