Cookie Cutter Favors and Ornaments

Cookie cutters are the new “in” thing for weddings and parties such as baby showers. They are inexpensive and easy to personalize. You can turn ordinary cookie cutters into ornaments, party favors, place cards, and more! cookie cutters come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You just simply match the cookie cutters to the event or holiday.

You can attach ribbon, raffia or twine depending on the theme to make holiday ornaments and leave them as they are or you could make more of a unique ornament. To make more of an unique ornament you can use color paper or different designs and styles or even use your own photos! You can use patterned paper such as scrapbooking paper or old photos and glue them onto heavy card stock. Trace the paper or photo with the cookie cutter of your choice. You then use some glue and dab along the edge of the cookie cutter and press the paper or photo onto the cookie cutter. Let dry. After cookie cutter is dry, carefully thread a ribbon between the cookie cutter and the paper. Finally knot the ends of the ribbon and you have your finished personalized ornament! This would also be a fun project for the kids. They could add their own embellishments such as glitter and bells.

For favors and place cards you can tie tags with cute sayings that fit the event or even tie on special recipes for your guest to enjoy when they take them home!
