I'm starting out with something SUPER easy.
Like you can knock a ton of these out in just a few minutes if you really wanted to.
I saw them on pinterest way back in the summer i think, and I knew I had to make them this year. They are too cute (and too easy) not to!
The original Tutorial is here. It's from Crafts by Amanda... And it is a genius-ly simple idea to really dress up a bag of Christmas cookies
Like the ones I am planning to make for our neighbor/landlord.
I did make mine a teeny tiny bit different than Amanda did. For one, I had plain white bread tags that I got from the bakery I work at. So I didn't need to paint them all white before I started. And secondly, for the pink cheeks:
I just used a red pen (a uniball liquid micro tip pen). I put a little dot of ink with the pen, and then I just rubbed it around with my finger, until they looked like nice pink-rosey cheeks.
|They look more like blushing ghosts without their carrot noses don't they?|
I'll try and get some pictures later on in this series of my cute little snowmen actually holding bags of cookies shut... I just need to bake the cookies first.
Merry Christmas!!.. Only 24 more days!
