Gingerbread Men Garland

My uni daughter loves Gingerbread men biscuits, Gingerbread houses, Gingerbread scented candles - just about everything Gingerbread!!   So I knew the perfect gift to make for her 'room away from home'.     I sourced some brown felt online and fiddled about with the size of the template until I was happy!
