Build A Gingerbread Lady Printable

My Christmas characters, including this adorable Gingerbread Lady, have been featured in festive printables over the years, but I’ve never turned them into buildable crafts… until now!

This Gingerbread Lady is actually Mrs. Gingebread as she’s married to Mr. Gingerbread and he’s got his own printable too: Build A Gingerbread Man Printable.

They’ve also got two children – George Gingerbread and Holly Gingerbread – so make sure you grab those printables as well!

The whole set of my Christmas characters are on their way, so make sure you are part of The Pumpkin Patch so that you don’t miss out:


Introducing Mrs. Gingerbread!

Gingerbread Lady Minifig

If you are a regular on my blog you’ll notice that my characters have a cute chubby style, and if they are animals they are anthropomorphic, which basically means that they have human traits – like standing on two legs instead of four. They get names too!

As with [most of] my printables, they are available in two paper sizes – A4 and US Letter (8.5″ x 11″)

Download your chosen printable from the list further down the page (they’re surrounded by a purple box), and print onto thick paper or thin card. Cut the pieces out, then build a Gingerbread Lady!

Included with this printable Mrs. Gingerbread craft are the following pieces:

  • Body (with eyes, mouth, cheeks)
  • Apron
  • Bow Headband
  • Arms
  • Feet

I’ve created two sizes for Mrs. Gingerbread: Regular size, which is what you see above, with all of the pieces on one sheet of paper; and Large size with bigger pieces spread over several sheets.

The regular size printable is for children that are more skilled at cutting. The large size should be a lot easier for younger children. Or you could cut them out for them. Of course, you know your children, so will know what suits them best!

You will notice in my photos demonstrating the Gingerbread Lady that I’ve drawn in the heart on her apron, as well as some of the shade on her bow.

The print didn’t come out so well, so I will be adjusting the contrast of the two reds I used in the printable and will update as soon as I can. Until then, please feel free to just draw them on!

You can stick the pieces together if you wish using glue or tape. Or you could use a laminator and laminate the pieces and use them over and over again.

You could mount your Gingerbread Lady onto a larger piece of construction paper and use other craft materials to embellish it – furry material, glitter glue, googly eyes, sequins, buttons, tissue paper, for example.

Most of all, just have fun with this printable!
