I am trying to get caught up on all of the things, I’ve cooked and created in the last year, so for the foreseeable future, I plan to post at least one story for the recipes and crafts sections each day. 

For my wedding my family and I made home-made ornaments. We started with cookie cutters, and glued decorative paper to one side. We then threaded each ornament with ribbon and beads. The finished product was great! I love favors with a personal touch.

Handmade Ornaments

 The entire process to create these ornaments was crazy.  I purchased cookie cutters in bulk online, and when they came in the mail, they all had price stickers on them.  I spent 2 whole nights at the table with the Goo-Gone before I got them all off. 

Once the labels were off, my mom and I went through and, since the cookie cutters were handmade and all different, traced each individual cookie cutter out on double sided scrapbook paper.  We cut the shapes out and glued them on to the back of the cookie cutters with Elemer’s Glue.  

Carolyn, Me and MaryKay

My step-mom Carolyn, myself and my mother-in-law Mary Kay creating ornaments. My mom, aunt Susan, cousin Brittany and both my sisters were also there.

Once we had all of this done, we gathered up all of the string and beads and had a favor making party. With all of the extra help at the favor making party it only took us one Saturday morning to finish off all 250 ornaments.
