I am blessed with some FABULOUS friend who are blessed with so many different talents.
One group of friends has gathered together in the recent years to have a cookie/ornament swap.
I was not able to attend this party this year because LB had a basketball game that was rescheduled for that night.
So, I sent my ornaments with my friend Sandy.
Here is my story behind my ornament:
I was cleaning out my craft room and realized I had entirely too many things in it!
So I decided I would not buy ONE thing for my ornaments.
Everything came from my craft room. I found cookie cutters (who has cookie cutters in their craft room?) that I think I had bought for our annual cookie swap. I had plenty of scrapbook paper and even found silver embellishments to add to them. I used E600 glue to attach the ornaments to the paper. Once the paper and glue had dried, I carefully cut it out. This was MUCH easier than cutting them out then attaching. Using the same glue, I then attached the embellishment to the the cookie cutter. Finally, I attached some craft twine to the back in order for my friends to hang them on their tree.
I was pretty please with how they turned out!
