Salt Dough Ornaments & Rustic Packaging & Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge
Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you some salt dough ornaments Emma and I made. This was my first attempt at making them so go easy on me, teehee! I have seen these all over the internet and thought I would give it a try. These were made for Emma's teachers, family and friends. I love making something handmade for people and this was the perfect little touch!
I used a can to cut out the shapes. I did purchase cookie cutters to use but they were to small to put the greeting on so I decided to go with a plain circle. The greetings on the ornaments and tags were stamped from Papertrey Ink's Think Big Favorites #9 set. I used Chocolate Chip ink from SU! and the ribbon was from my stash. I was going to go with jute twine but decided on this delicate ribbon to give it more of a shabby feel.
For the tags I used the Damask Snowflake Die from Papertrey Ink and die cut the snowflakes from the Rustic Cream Cardstock. I sponged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and tied a couple bells onto the snowflake tags. The tiny brown bags were from my stash. I think I bought them at Pat Catan's. The tags were originally made for my Christmas presents but I didn't end up using them. I went with a red, white and kraft color scheme instead.
