I have a cute bunny mold and my friend borrowed it to make easter place cards when she had many coming to dinner ..they came out so cute..good ideaamberdragon said:this is a great idea...a good way to make a lot of "place setting" gifts for a luncheon. ect. thanks for sharing, now to come up with some cookie molds...
yes a little and it was ok..maybe just not one of my talents lolfibermcgivver said:Have you ever tried chalk to add color? Like adding it with a small stiff brush... or eye shadow...
Try it and be sure to show us!fibermcgivver said:All these great ideas got me thinking about using unbleached (mocha colored) paper towel from the health food store to use with gingerbread molds.... hmm.... I always get excited about a new craft!
I too have alot of these cookie molds and smaller medallion molds....that I had used to cast paper....Made cards and gift tags...picture collages..frames....etc....For the paper I used anything I could think of......colored junk mail.....brown paper bags mixed with sawdust worked well for the bear molds.....toilet paper...tissue paper.. phone book paper....To the pulp I added dried flowers...herbs....confetti...glitter....food coloring etc... After the molded paper was dry.....accented key features with water-color paints... colored chalks........I've even casted fabric.....Besides the above molds...I've also used antique pie tins( embossed tins with beautiful designs on them).....glass plates(embossed designs usually on the back)...Sue Fish said:yes and so easy...i have a good collection of the clay cookie molds...used to play with them a lot years ago making the cast paper..
I'm sorry.....the only thing I have are the molds...and I thought about selling those because I haven't used them in years......I just thought I'd post to give people some ideas of different materials they could use...brdlvr27 said:Tallie9 - you are just to creative - everything sounds beautiful - do you have any you haven't given away to show us? Would love to see some of these.
