Hello, everyone!This is Atiya and I am back again with the project using May's box. Let's not waste time and dig into the details. The box contained a heart-shaped cookie cutter and I just HAD to alter that into an ornament. I like how a cookie cutter can be so versatile. I honestly never thought about it before!Here I am listing down the steps.
1. First, I glued down the cookie cutter to one of the cardstocks included in the box. Then I took my Fingertip Detail Knife by Fiskers (you can use a regular blade as well) and cut the paper out.
2. Once the main step was done then I took out some florals from my stash. Matched them out with the cardstock I was using. Made a bunch and glued it.
3. Next, sticking the SEQUINS. The most exciting part of the box is the mix of glitter and sequins. I just love how Emma mix and matches everything according to the theme. Okay, let us get back to the steps before I get carried away again (LOL!). Grabbed those sequins and glued them down.
4. Then comes the fun part - The box has a wooden teapot. First I decided to paint that up but then I came across the glitter and the tone of it was just perfect for the cardstock I had used. I quickly used my spray adhesive and pour the glitter on it. Once it was dried up, I went on and sprayed it with Extra Thick Gloss Spray by Folka Art to give it a nice glossy coat.
5. Next, I grabbed one of the sentiments that came with the box. I chose 'Time for Tea'. I trimmed a little from both ends and lightly distressed using Distress Ink in Wild Honey.
6. Then came back to the teapot which was all dried up by then. And added the sentiment on the top.
7. Lastly, I adjusted the teapot on the cutter and glued that down.
And YOU'RE DONE with your very own cookie cutter ornament. You can attach the piece of thread on the back to hang or even simply put it down somewhere on the table.
I hope I have inspired you today to make something. See you soon!
