Deliver an extra-sweet holiday greeting by making and mailing a gingerbread man to someone special. It looks so realistic, your mail carrier might even try to take a bite out of this creative Christmas cookie postcard.
Gather your supplies
Note: Supplies will make 1-2 postcards.
Blend your color
Kneed the 2 colors of Crayola Model Magic together until blended.
Roll & cut
Flatten it with a rolling pin to approximately 1/2-inch thick. Cut a gingerbread man or woman shape with the cookie cutter. Roll and cut out 2 more gingerbread men with remaining modeling clay.
Allow to dry
Place them on a piece of parchment paper and allow them to dry for 2 or 3 days.
Trace your shapes
On a sheet of decorative card stock, trace around the hardened gingerbread men.
Cut & glue
Cut out the shapes and spray-glue them to the back sides of the gingerbread men.
Decorate your "cookies"
Using the T-shirt puff paint, decorate the fronts of the gingerbread men. Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours.
Seal & set
Spray the fronts with matte finish to seal. Allow it to dry.
Mail to everyone you know
Stamp, address and mail your gingerbread man postcards. Sizes and weights will vary, but mine mailed for just under $3, so I used three $1 stamps.
