Vintage Cutter

I'm still adding decorations to my tree.  I have been wanting to make some cookie cutter ornaments and I found these cute metal trees... only 2 left so I snapped them up.  These are pretty easy to make with just a few items needed.


Start by tracing out some paper... I used Tidings paper scraps.  I applied some Matte Medium with a brush on the inside of the cutter and coated with clear rock candy glitter for a vintage sugary look.  


That got me thinking I needed to make the outside vintage too.  For that vintage look Mirrored Platinum embossing powder is embossed to the exterior of the cookie cutter.  It tones down that shiny metal cutter.  Trim the paper, glue to the cutter and grab some embellishments.


I created a Rustic Woodland ornament with pine twine, pinecones and the trophy antlers.


Embossing the outside of the cutter has a vintage look now.


Loving the antlers and tidings paper.


The sugary inside is so pretty.


The 2nd cutter is simple and pretty.


I love the simple cream, white and silver.


I used the wee deer and mini tree for this cutter topped with a teeny mirrored star.


Hanging on the tree they will catch the light. I need to find more... 6 altogether should do it.  These are so easy and quick to make.  The cutters can be found anywhere right now and in different shapes.  Oh perhaps a star next!
