Cookie Cutters (We purchased a pack of 6 at Walmart for 88 cents)
Glue (We used white Elmers glue)
Squirt bottle (We used condiment bottles from Walmart.. 99 cents)
Mix glue and food coloring in squirt bottles. Place your cookie cutters on a piece of wax paper and squeeze away!
My 22 Month old is not one for arts and crafts and she loved this one. Squeezing glue into cutters.
Shaking on some glitter
She had a better angle from on top of the table. :-) As you can see here... my oldest was not yet ready to join this invitation.
More glitter sprinkling.
My oldest decided to join in. Some intense glitter shaking!
These were maybe 1/8th of an inch thick?? They took a day and a half to dry completely. I just cut a small slit in them with a knife and hung them with fishing wire and sticky putty.
After some people having problems with leaks I decided to try a different way to give you another option....
Place your design underneath the wax paper.
Take a hot glue gun, outline the design, and fill up with your white glue! I used two layers of hot glue for the border. You could probably put some hot glue around your cookie cutter to keep the glue from leaking as well. We will have to try that one next time.
Invitation to make Easter Egg Glue Catchers
We've learned a lot since first starting with these. 2 layers of hot glue works perfectly. Also, instead of wax paper, use a piece of glass or pelxi glass. This way it peels off smoothly and you can pick it up and move it where ever you like while they are drying.
