I experimented with plaster of paris and cookie cutter molds to make these absolutely adorable ornaments for 3 of my dear teacher friends for Christmas. The tag is a masterboard I received in a swap that I cut with my 1" circle die cut. On the back I wrote, “Life is sweeter with friends like you.” with my .05 fineliner.
The plaster of paris only took about 20 min to set. I filled the metal cookie cutter only about 1/3 of the way. Then, I let it dry a day or two. I painted the fronts, then painted the backs. I used E6000 (worked, eh so far) to hold the “raffia.”
I made holes with a paper clip. As you might notice, one was thicker, and the paper clip wouldn’t go through, so I used the sharp point of a compass. It made the PoP shred a bit, but a little paint mostly covered it.
I had wire in my stash.
I think they’ll love them. I am really pleased with how they turned out.
Here is one posing on my tree.
Thanks for looking!
