I have been kept busy these last few days doing Christmas crafts. Both my girls like to give out cards & candy canes at the end of year and I try to make it a little more fun and interesting so this year my little one gets to give out cookie cutter ornaments! Flicking through a Stampin Up! catalogue in the back showcasing their ribbon collection were Christmas cookie cutters and I loved the idea and then while browsing The Paper Tree blog the lovely Sarah also had cookie cutter ornaments - same idea two very different places and I thought I just have to give these a go, they looked so cute! They are so easy although time consuming but just lots and lots of fun and the end results are so stinking cute, don't you think!!! Below are only two, a Christmas Tree and a Bell, I made 18 different shapes including Angels, Gingerbread man, Stars and Reindeer, we  filled them with a candy cane and chocolate baubles, sealed with acetate and decorated with Holly leaves, kept it simple so my little one could help..

and just for a bit of fun we are going to give her Kindy teacher a Survival Kit! I made one a few years back and had lots of comments and my son's teacher was so thrilled to receive such a fun yet useful gift. We are also giving a more traditional gift - a gorgeous Gingerbread House candle from Dusk.

I have a few other Christmas projects I will share in a day or two as its getting late. Thanks for stopping on by, have a fun week!
