Thank You Cinnamon Ornaments

My daughter asked me create her some thank you notes, so I whipped up some and added little cinnamon ornaments as a small gift.

Essentials by Ellen Voices in My Head, The Ton Confetti Borders sentiments, Reverse Confetti Gift Card Holder die, AALL & Create Superbly Square Stencil, Lawn Fawn Yeti Ink, Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, Versafine Onyx Black Ink, Brutus Monroe Hyper Pigment Gold

I sponged on the background with Lawn Fawn Ink and an AALL stencil.

Each ornament is finished with Brutus Monroe's Hyper Gold pigment.

Cinnamon Ornament Recipe

Ingredients (yields 5-6 ornaments)

-1 Cup Ground Cinnamon

-1 tsp Nutmeg

-1 tsp Cloves 

-3/4 Cup unsweetened applesauce

-2 TBS Tacky Glue (I use Aleene's Original Craft glue) 

-Cookie Cutters 


Combine the spices with applesauce. Add glue and knead well with hands until mixture forms stiff dough. Dust the surface lightly with cinnamon and roll out the dough 1/4" thick. Cut the dough with cookie cutters and lay out on a sheet of waxed paper.  Gently poke a hole in each with a straw. Leave in a safe place to dry for about a week, flipping the ornament multiple times each day to evenly dry.  When dry, decorate with paint and/or glitter and attach a ribbon. You can store finished ornament in a plastic bag and reuse it each year.

My girls make these every year and they are well received!
