Christmas cookie cutters make wonderful bases for ornaments. I made a lot of ornaments with buttons last year. This year, I was at a local crafting store, and they had their big packs of ribbon roses on clearance for 50 cents. Naturally, I bought about a dozen packs. I thought about the Button Ornaments that I did last year, and thought I’d try the same idea with these ribbon roses.
I had a white cookie cutter in an angel shape, the white roses will go with it nicely.
Start by gluing them on with hot glue, working around the outside from the top.
Keep gluing them on all around the top and sides. Pack them together to fill in well.
I left the outside of the bottom clear just in case I wanted to sit it on a table.
Using a pair of needlenose pliers to hold it in place, I put the cording on the top with hot glue.
I made a loop, then added a jewel as a halo
I thought the bottom looked a bit unfinished, so I added three roses to the inside.
And, voila! All done!
