Last year I started a tradition of taking baked goods around to the neighbors on Christmas morning. My mother-in-law taught me how to make scones a few years ago so I make scones as my neighborhood gift now.
This year I have taken the gingerbread man from the file "Cookies For Santa" and I have modified him so to become a recipe holder. Directions on how to make him are at the end of the pictures.

 I have little slits to stick the 3 x 5 notecards in.
 This is a side view so you understand how he can lay flat.


The cards can store behind him as you put him away in his envelope.
Directions
Gingerbread Man
cut out gingerbread man at w: 11.790 by H: 7.099
Make a circle cut at .075 in and fold in half. You can use one of the shapes from the Sure Cuts A Lot pre programmed forms.
Fold the circle in half and place it and trace it where you will use an x-acto knife to cut the rounded slits to hold your recipes.
Easel Stand
Cut cardstock into a 2 x 8 in strip and crease in at 1 inch on each end and then 3 more inches from 1 inch line. Crease 3 inch area in half (1 1/2 in) and that makes easel stand.

Have a wonderful day and now hop on over to Corri's blog and I'll see you one more time here tomorrow.

Hugs from Jearise in Lorby's World.
