On the 18th day of Christmas - cookie cutter tree ornaments

On the 18th day of Christmas my true love gave to me................ cookie cutter tree ornaments.

A lovely gift for the baker in your life, a touching and thoughtful gift for the person with everything. Cookie cutters make great photo frames and stunning Christmas tree ornaments. Fun to make with children, grandchildren, nieces & nephews.

The options are endless for customising these cutter ornaments, ideas include

* including a recipe on reverse of picture for your favourite cookie.
* gifting one per year, to children from birth, with a cutter to match the stages in their life
* hang on your tree at Christmas time and then remove insert for use during the year.
So simple to make:
Choose patterned papers or colour-photocopy pictures onto card stock.
Trace cutter on top; cut out. Dab white craft glue along cookie cutter's edge.
Press paper in place; let dry.
Thread narrow ribbon through needle; poke between paper and cutter, and wrap ribbon around top of cutter.
Slip a bead over ribbon's ends; knot. (if hanging on your Christmas tree)
