Crafting with Martha and Amy: Cookie Cutter Ornaments

By craftyamy |

cookie cutter ornaments

This week I had a lot of fun with my project, and it provided a lot of instant Christmas gratification. Meet my cookie cutter ornaments, which are pretty decent versions of Martha’s originals. I’ve been crafting along with Martha Stewart’s recently released book Handmade Holiday Crafts for several weeks now, and the book is jammed packed with Christmas projects. It was kind of hard to choose, but I have several weeks until the big day, so I have plenty of time.

I went with the cookie cutter ornaments because I have a lot of scrap paper and I thought these would make great gifts. I was also excited about the personalization aspect (that is my black pug Nellie, above). One thing that made me a bit nervous was purchasing the cookie cutters. I was sure that I was going to have to spend $4 or so per cutter (I don’t bake so I had no idea), so I was pleased to find them for $1 at Michaels. I was also pleased that they were colors rather than just silver. Yay! Do you want to see more about the project (and Martha’s version)? Click through the jump!

So after going through the project steps, there’s just a few things that I would change. After gluing the image to the cookie cutter, I would let it dry and then go around the edge again with another strip of glue to secure it throughly. I would also poke a hole in the image before gluing it down. Do you want to know what I’m talking about? Take a peek at the steps below.

I got $1 cookie cutters from Michaels and I had everything else on hand (paper, ribbon, beads, marker, glue, scissors).
