More Ornaments...Cookie Cutter Frames

This is our final batch of homemade ornaments this year. We've been collecting Christmas themed cookie cutters when we see them on sale or find them at the dollar store.

First, we added glue to the dull side of the cutter. After testing several kinds of glue, we figured out that fast acting tacky craft glue works best.

Then we glued the cutters to all kinds of paper surfaces. We used scrapbook papers which we loved because many of them were two sided and gave the ornaments a more finished look. We also used old Christmas cards and photos.

After allowing them to dry, we used an Exacto pen to carefully cut around the frame and made a small hole in the top to add string. We made several batches of these for gifts this year, adding family photos to some and colors we know people like to others.
