Christmas Cookies.. I Mean Ornaments!

I always enjoy handmade Christmas ornaments...
not only are they cute on a tree, but they make a great teacher's present too.

This year i picked up some inexpensive cookie cutters
and decided to turn them into ornaments using December's kit.

Its a pretty simple project!
Here are the directions:

Step 1: Trace your cookie cutter onto your patterned paper.

Step 2: cut out the traced shaped, allowing a 1/4" edge.

Step 3: Punch a hole in the top of your cookie cutter using your cropadile.

Step 4: Glue your cookie cutter to your paper, and let dry.

Step 5: Embellish ( I added a gem for Rudolph's nose)

Step 6: Cut 2 small pieces of crepe paper streamers. ( you could also use ribbon)

Step 7: Tie the crepe paper bow to the cutter with baker's twine and create a loop for hanging!

Thats It!
I hope you'll make a few of your own.
