Vintage Christmas Cookie Cutter Ornaments ~ Crafty Secrets

Happy Monday!
I'm showing you the ornaments I finished up today.
I put them on a 2' tree that I put on my Hoosier in my kitchen. I started with these vintage Christmas cookie cutters I've been picking up for awhile now.
I only used the ones I had more than 1 of, I want to keep a collection, who knows I might make some cookies one day, LOL!
I had so much fun with these, gathering my materials and putting them all together, I photographed them on a vintage plastic Christmas doily that has poinsettias all around the edges.

I bought a couple of the cookie cutters with the metal tags on them, they used them for price tags.
I decided to use those and I dug out some more I had to use as the base for my Crafty Secrets Christmas double sided Creative Scraps.

I tied bows with the ribbon around the handles of the cutters, added the tags with the Christmas Creative Scraps punched out & glued on to each one.

I punched some holly leaves and added berries using red buttons, wrapped silver pipe cleaner around a pencil to get it spirally and tucked it in here and there.

I punched some stars and covered them with Martha Stewart white gold glitter.
I tied the gold cord through the back of the handle to hang them from the tree.
Supplies: Paper - Crafty Secrets Christmas Creative Scraps, scraps of pattern paper for the holly leaves. Acces. - vintage Christmas cookie cutters, metal edge circle tags, ribbon, buttons, silver pipe cleaner, sequin snowflakes, Martha Stewart white gold glitter, gold cord, ice floral pick. Tools - Martha Stewart holly leaf punch, Creative Memories star punch, 1 1/4" circle punch.

I hope y'all have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

VIntage? I still use cookie cutters like these...lol. They were my moms when she was little, we used them when I was little and now my daughter is 19 and she uses them every Christmas. I do love the idea of making ornaments with them, but can;t give up using them for cookies...yet.

Oh my stars, Pam, these are absolutely DARLING!!! Love how you paired the cookie cutters with the cute vintage images. I have a small collection of these type of cookie cutters that were handed down to me from my grandmother. I might have to use at least one of them to make a keepsake ornament for our Christmas tree :)
