How to make it

  • Grocery Bag Gingerbread Folk - Step 1

    Cut a strip of paper from a brown bag. Measure the width of a gingerbread cookie cutter, then accordion-fold the bag to match the width of the cookie cutter. Trace the cutter onto the paper, making sure that each of the hands ends on a fold.

  • Step 2 - Grocery Bag Gingerbread Folk

    Use paper clips to secure the folded bag, then cut along the lines (be careful not to cut through the folds). Unfold the garland and decorate your “family” with markers, googly eyes, buttons, and ribbons. If you like, each folk with a name.
