Mmmm! I've been baking up a storm! Before we get to the cookies, I'd like to share my next card that I made for Card*a*licious! The challenge this week is to create a card with at least 3 circles. I busted out my new Cuttlebug machine and embossed a circle card with the Swiss Dots plate, added a tree sticker and rub on by Art Warehouse, pink button is Basic Grey Euphoria and star button is Making Memories. The little felt snowflakes were in a kit that I received before, so I'm not sure how they were made. But I wish I had more!
The next one is my first project for Dream Street! We were assigned to work with 3 lines for November: Cookies-n-Cream, Mod Posy and Mairzy Doats(on the card). I found this neat box at the craft store for $1 and altered it with the papers, baked some cookies to go inside and added the recipe on the Cookies-n-Cream recipe paper. It has a flip top lid that I thought was really neat.
I added a swirl rub on to the tag- cut from the paper, a rub on saying by Melissa Frances and some lace. The flower in the middle is a silk flower from the craft store.
These papers also have a treat bag template on them, all you do is fold it up and adhere! Super easy! I tucked in a little bag of these cookies...
...a special treat for someone special at Thanksgiving. You can view all of the specific directions on how to make these 3 projects at the Dream Street Blog.
These cookies are *delicious*...you should try them! Here is the recipe, which is from Nestle's Best Loved Cookies:
