Fold a piece of construction or kraft paper in half.
Line the top of a cookie cutter on the fold, so that the card will open there. Using a pencil, trace around the cookie cutter.
Cut the design out. If you want a card smaller than the cookie cutter, make a template by tracing around the cookie cutter on a white piece of paper and reduce the size of the outline on a copier. Cut out the template, and trace on construction or kraft paper.
Add additional decoration to the card. When Martha makes a card with a dog-shaped cookie cutter, she uses a marker for the dog’s eye and glues on a tail made from the leftover paper.
Using a hole punch, punch a hole at the top of the card, thread with twine, and attach to gift basket.
