Couture Creations

Sweet Treats for Christmas 
By Sue Smyth 

Hi Bloggers 
do you have any last minute gifts to make or little blank 
spots on the tree that need a decoration?
I have a super project for you 

This gorgeous decoration is made really simply 
from an old cookie cutter and Couture Creations 
Glitter Paper.
This one is a tree 

And this one is a ginger bread man 

You can follow my step by step below to make
 your very own and decorate with 
Couture Creations 3 mm pearls and rhinestones 

Select the easier shapes to start with.

Dry brush with gesso inside and out.
You can also add a bit of crackle medium
for an interesting shabby look.

When dry spray with a matching ink, in 
this case green

Place over glitter paper and mark
and out line with a white paint pen.
Trim out to fit the cookie cutter

Decorate the inside with pearls and rhinestones.
Use pearl drops to colour the edge and add 
further embellishment

With a crop a dile punch 2 holes in the 
top of the cookie cutter 

Thread through gold string, to hang with
before you add the cheeky gingham bow.

Happy Crafting
