Easy Gingerbread Treat Bag Pattern

I've always loved the look of gingerbread men.  They are so simple but yet bring so much holiday spirit and joy to home decorations.

Don't get me wrong, I love evergreens and berries.  I love the natural look of Christmas, but add a cute gingerbread person and I'm set.
