Choosing the Perfect Cookie Cutters
- Find Your Set: Start by picking up a set of inexpensive Christmas cookie cutters. You can often find them in tubs of 25 or 30 various shapes, ranging from $3 to $10.
- Shape Matters: Ensure you choose shaped cookie cutters, not the ones that imprint designs on cookies. Single-sale cutters with tops are great for easy attachment to gift bags.
Crafting Your Gift Tags
- Check for a Backing: First, determine if your cookie cutter has a backing or handle that can be used to secure the tag.
If There Is a Backing:
- Trace the Inside: Place the cookie cutter on construction paper or thick plain paper. Lightly trace the inside outline with a pencil.
- Cut and Personalize: Carefully cut just inside the traced line. Write the recipient’s name and any other details on the tag.
- Attach and Secure: If there’s no hanging tab, punch a hole near the top. Glue the tag to the backing of the cookie cutter.
If There Is No Backing:
- Trace the Outside: Place the cutter on your chosen paper and trace the outside outline.
- Cut and Write: Cut along your traced line and add your personalized message.
- Glue and Set: Apply a light layer of glue along the edges of the cookie cutter and attach the tag to the back.
Attaching Tags to Gifts
- Ribbon Tricks: If your cookie cutter has a hanging tab, thread ribbon through it and tie it to your gift bag. If you’ve made a hole punch, string the ribbon through the hole to secure it to the gift.
Making Each Tag Special
- Tailor to the Recipient: Choose cookie cutter shapes that resonate with the interests of each person. A tree shape for a nature lover, a train for a young railway enthusiast, or an angel for someone who adores fairy tales.
