Here’s a sweet way to recycle those unattractive grocery bags. These can be made into garland or cut out separately for cute little gingerbread boys and girls.
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.
2.) 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.Source Family Fun Magazine
