Gingerbread Man Rolling Pin Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
Kit Quality Could Be Much Better!
I initially really liked look of these ornaments. But I had several problems with the kits after purchase. I was able to work around most of them.
I agree totally with the other reviewers about the quality of the foam gingerbread man. If the gingerbread boy was of the same thickness and quality of the ones in the ¿¿¿Happiness is Homemade¿¿¿ kit I would be totally satisfied with it. I had to glue the ones in the kit to heavy brown paper and then trim the excess off with zigzag scissors.
I also really do not like the look of the ¿¿¿icing¿¿¿ strips and the ¿¿¿expression¿¿¿ printed on the face. I used the ¿¿¿icing¿¿¿ strips and noses I had left over from the ¿¿¿Happiness¿¿¿ kits.
I also used stickers and other embellishments I had on hand to customize several of the ornaments.
These are very cute and are really worth the extra effort to make them work! But if OT would make a few changes to this kit the ornaments would be greatly improved!
I also would like to see OT offer an item that included a couple of each of the gingerbread ornaments for people who want to decorate a tree with different ornaments instead of having to buy 12 of each kind.

I bought this to give away at Christmas time along with sweet breads that I made. I do not have a lot of money and this was a very cute gift to give and something the person will have for a very long time.

I couldnt assemble all of mine because a few were missing some of the parts. Those that I could were adorable. I turned mine into magnets.

My first grade class puts on a play called "The Gingerbread Kid Caper". They dress up as bakers for the performance. They make these ornaments as a keepsake. We write the year on the spoon handle and their name on the rolling pin. Turns out adorable!
