It's been a couple of weeks since I've participated in What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW), so I thought I'd get back in the swing of things since I've always got stuff on my desk lately!
I saw Christmas cookie cutters used as a wall decoration on page 174 of the Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog and thought to myself, "Self, that might be fun to make." Well, the shopping for the cookie cutters was fun. I got those half-priced. It was easy to adhere to cutters to Jolly Holiday dsp. The tough part is how gooey the adhesive is (I used Tombow Liquid Adhesive). Go figure! I thought it would dry completely since I did that step days ago. Nope. Still gooey. I used a pair of cheap scissors to cut the paper around the cutters and a hobby blade for the tighter spots. I used my Crop-a-dile to easily punch a 3/16" hole in the top of each cutter, and started adding the ribbon, feeding both ends through the top of each cutter and knotting them together. I pulled the ribbon colors from the paper - Cherry Cobbler seam binding, Old Olive satin ribbon, and Very Vanilla taffeta. I've got two of the cookie cutters finished and hanging from a wooden dowel in the first photo. The dowel will be on a wall, so the cutters won't have room to spin around.
Now you can go snoop at the others' desks, including WOYWW founder - Julia - at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/. Have fun! And leave lots of nice comments. Everyone loves those.
