Cute Little Cookie Cutter Ornaments

This week we are showcasing products from our friends atTombow to bring you tons of Christmas/Winter themed inspiration!

Join us all week long for Christmas gift ideas that you can easily create with  Authentique Paper and Tombow products!
********************
What's the key to making some quick ornaments for the Holidays this year?  Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue with the festive "Joyous" paper collection from Authentique Paper!  Of course you'll need some cookie cutters for completing this project, along with StazOn ink to color the cookie cutters and a little bit of ribbon.  This is a great project for the entire family and the possibilities are endless!
Start with your cookie cutter.  Any color metal works- silver, brass or even copper.  I found that the least expensive ones are the silver ones.  Keep your eyes out at the thrift store or the dollar store- and remember that you can do this project year round, just switch the theme of the cookie cutter and your favorite Authentique Paper.
Using an InkBlusher, add StazOn ink to the cookie cutter.  Obviously since this one is a gingerbread man I used StazOn Saddle Brown.  Once the ink is applied, let it dry complete.
Place the cookie cutter down onto your Authentique Paper, trace with a pen, and then cut out the shape.

Apply the Mono Aqua Liquid Glue with the pen tip along the rounded edge of the cookie cutter.  Just follow around the lip of the cookie cutter.
Pop the cookie cutter down onto the paper and apply pressure for a few seconds.  Then flip the cutter over (paper side up) and allow to dry.  Wipe off excess glue.
Once dried, you can add more embellishments to these great ornaments.  Add ribbon to the tops of the ornaments, or even tie them around the ornaments like I did on the gingerbread man to look like a scarf.  Add your favorite stickers from the Details sticker sheet for that finishing touch.
To hang the ornaments, create a hole through the paper through top o f the ornament.  I found using an awl to make the hole flush with the cookie cutter is the easiest.  Pull the ornament hook through, bend to shape and add a few drops of Mono Aqua Liquid Glue to hold in place.

Hope you have fun with the family creating ornaments for the tree or around the house!
