Welcome to Altered Pages! Christmas in July is drawing towards the end - Susan here bringing you a special holiday project using Altered Pages Digital Collage Sheets. This project is pretty simple using Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and some inexpensive cookie cutters. I'm a Christmas Elf and I have been creating Christmas cards all year, so it was fun to make some handmade vintage ornaments.
I selected an angel from AP-2044 Blue Angels Digital Collage Sheet.
This isn't a new idea - this idea is all over magazines and holiday idea books every holiday season. What you want to do is size your image to the cookie cutter shape and print out on cardstock. Then you run a bead of Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer around the inside edge of the cookie cutter. This will act like caulking around a window frame and seal the paper to the metal. These are so fun to make - they are like decorating cookies!
After drying completely, trim edges and embellish with some pretty ribbon and garland trim.
Each shape takes on it's own personality and the possibilities are endless. I have a several in the works and they make a great gift as a set - or individually this could top off a beautifully wrapped gift. I invite you to play along too and post your projects at the Altered Pages Facebook page HERE.
