Hey everyone, Cindy here sharing a project that is completely inspired by Martha Stewart. There is a bundle of inspiration you can find on her website, such as these cookie cutter ornaments. I am all about creating simple, fast & easy crafty projects around the holidays, especially ornaments.
All you need is your favorite holiday paper, such as the Jingle Collection & super cheap cookie cutters. I've had these colorful cookie cutters for a long while & have been buying really nice cookie cutters lately & thought it would be fun to up cycle my old ones. They are super easy to create.
Punch a hole at the top of each cookie cutter using a hole punch. The cookie cutters I used are super thin, which made it easy to punch a hole.
Use the thicker side of the cookie cutter & trace the outside of cookie cutter onto pattern paper & hand-cut. Add glue around edges of cookie cutter & adhere to cut out. Use a craft knife or scissors to remove excess.
Thread both ends of thick rope or string through the holes of each cookie cutter & tie a knot at the end to secure. Embellish using chipboard accents, cardstock stickers & rub-ons.
I love how they turned out & look really nice on our Christmas tree. You can easily use your favorite photos & give as gifts to your love ones.
