Glitter Cookies



I cannot remember where I saw these ornaments but you should know I am not the genius behind them. Merely a copycat of sorts.  These are worth every flex of glitter.


A hole was punched in the top and the bottom with a nail and hammer from the inside out.


A few glass Christmas beads from broken strings were wired on with jewelry wire to the top and the bottom of the ornament.


After several days of drying and a little photo shoot...these sweet ornaments are headed out in the mail.


Simple, vintage Christmas glitter cookies.
Now I am off to sew.

Cuteness! LOL
I can't decide if this gives me permission to BUY more cookie cutters, or if I have to dip into my stash! Hmmmm

I've been hanging cookie cutters on my kitchen garland with gingham ribbon but I love them covered in glitter with beads even more.

Renee these are so sweet what a cute idea. I have tons of cookie cutters I could do this for just giving a little something to someone type gift. I cashed your postage check yesterday. I'm sorry it got placed in my craft bin and forgotten, then it somehow ended up in tissue paper sent to my daughter. She says Mom there is a check to you in my package. Oh dear this couldn't mean I'm getting old could it, Naw!!
