I initially really liked look of these ornaments. But I had several problems with the kits after purchase. I was able to work around most of them. I agree totally with the other reviewers about the quality of the foam gingerbread man. If the gingerbread boy was of the same thickness and quality of the ones in the “Happiness is Homemade” kit I would be totally satisfied with it. I had to glue the ones in the kit to heavy brown paper and then trim the excess off with zigzag scissors.
I also really do not like the look of the “icing” strips and the “expression” printed on the face. I used the “icing” strips and noses I had left over from the “Happiness” kits.
I also used stickers and other embellishments I had on hand to customize several of the ornaments.
These are very cute and are really worth the extra effort to make them work! But if OT would make a few changes to this kit the ornaments would be greatly improved!
I also would like to see OT offer an item that included a couple of each of the gingerbread ornaments for people who want to decorate a tree with different ornaments instead of having to buy 12 of each kind.
Cons: quality, foam is very thin!
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
