    I just finished these up and I thought I'd post some pictures, I'm really excited about how these turned out!

     

    Since I'm having a December wedding, and I'm obsessed with Christmas, I decided to make salt dough ornaments for everyone. They were incredibly easy to make not to mention cheap- the total cost for each ornament came to around .20 cents!

     

    **My Logo and Stickers were made by Allurements by Rebecca. She's a genius and I highly recommend her!!

    Picture of the finished ornament:

    I made the dough, rolled it out and stamped on the logo using a rubber stamp that I had made and an ink pad. I then cut them out, poked a hole in the top and set them out to dry. Once they were completely dry, I sprayed sealer on them, glued on a few rhinestones and tied the ribbon. A little time consuming but really easy! If anyone wants to make these and needs more detailed instructions just let me know!

     

    This is how I'm packaging them:

        These are beautiful! Love them. I made sand dollar ornaments because I'm a December bride, too. In fact, we're date twins! I will post my thread on this.

            Thanks Guys!!

            Msglave I'm so happy to have a date twin!! I can't wait to see your ornaments too, I'll go find them now!

            For the packaging, It's just crepe paper that I wrapped them in. I cut wide strips of the paper, folded the ornaments inside and wrapped it around several times to add some padding. I'm a bit nervous that they'll break in transit. I then folded the top in a triangle and secured with the sticker Rebecca made for me.

                  Mekanabr, I'll find the info for the stamp place, I don't have it with me at the moment, and I'll include instructions and stuff with it! Thanks!

                    Excellent Idea! I'm most likely geting married in January, but I love the idea of giving an ornament as a favor (I love Christmas too!). How did you make the dough? How many ornaments did you get out of each batch? Where did you order the stamp from? Did you use regular ink with the rubber stamper?

                     

                    Love this Idea!!!
