Challenge 50 - Cookie Cutters

While you're waiting for all the new CHA goodies to hit the stores, let's find a few "new" things to do with your current supplies. Everyone's got at least one cookie cutter lying around - right? Well, let's get creative with them!

Your challenge is to use cookie cutters in creating your layout. You can interpret that however you wish. Tell us how you used them when you link up your layout.

Are you kids getting restless? Put them to work, too! Give them some cookie cutters and playdoh or let them make their own creation along side you.

Just link up your layout by Sunday, August 9th to be eligible for a RAK. Since it's summer and taking the kids anywhere takes me three times a long, I'm going to give one lucky participant a gift certificate to Studio Calico.

Here's what the team did:


I had several star cookie cutters in different sizes, including a large one. I used them two ways: stamping onto paper with Tim Holtz's Distress Paint and tracing around them and making Shrinky Dinks. I chose to use Distress Paint because it comes with it's own brush and it was easy to "paint" the edges of the cutter. For the smaller Shrinky Dinks, I stamped them with Staz-on ink before shrinking.

Here's a link to mine. I used the metal shaped cutters to make leaves on the background paper. I wish they'd come out a little "thicker," but I think you can see the images.

Deborah, this is a great idea! I used my cookie cutters (which I NEVER use in the kitchen! LOL!) as a template for the heart masks on my layout!
