Two Day Series: Making cookie ornaments {Part 1}

This year I am making special gifts for my son to give to his classmates during their Christmas party.  I thought I would share with you how to make these precious cookie ornaments so you could do the same!  They are inexpensive, fun, AND best of all, they are COOKIES!!!
I used an ornament I found in Crate and Barrel to make these!  I hope you like them!
Here is a video showing HOW I baked them…
This is a pretty in-depth project, so I broke it into two parts, baking and decorating.  I’ll post part-two tomorrow.  So, don’t be afraid!  Get out the old recipe box, dust off your favorite cookie recipe and give it a shot.  If you don’t like your recipe, use my gingerbread recipe!

Good luck and happy baking =)
