Getting Ready For Christmas
Cookie Box #1
I love Christmas and adore baking cookies and treats to share with friends and family during the holidays. One of my favorite cookies to bake and decorate is gingerbread. Today while cleaning I found an old dollie and it made me think of snowflake cookies. That is when I became obsessed with decorating a container to put the cookies in.
I found these beauties on Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/44262008811340502/
Instead of cleaning and organizing my life, which is what I started this morning I assembled the materials to make a cookie box.
A box bought at a garage sale.
Some brown tissue paper bought for wrapping a present. Actually I never wrapped the present after I bought the paper, but that is another story.
I used Mod Podge to start layering on the tissue paper. I tried not to apply it too thick so the lid would still fit.
After the Mod Podge dried I put the dollie on the box and secured it with a knob that I bought at the Restore.
Won’t it look amazing filled with gingerbread cookies?
I lined it with wrapping paper and sealed it all with two more coats of Mod Podge.
My first Christmas craft of the season!
