Hi there, Pebbles friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, excited to share one of my favorite recent projects! Do you have a favorite Fall recipe? One that you make over and over? I sure do – my mom’s pumpkin cookie recipe! Seriously, I’ve made it more than any other recipe in my entire life. I’ve already made it three times since school started! And I’ve eaten more than my fair share – but I also love to make this recipe to share with friends, neighbors, and co-workers. I’ve yet to meet anyone who didn’t love these cookies…which makes it even more fun to make and share! Since I make it so often, I thought it would be fun to make a little recipe art and leave it out on my kitchen counter all season long. This is what I came up with, using the new Harvest Collection:
You can make it too – with my recipe – or one of your favorites! Here’s how:
Start with your recipe, of course. You can use your original copy if you like…or you could rewrite it on these super fun pre-printed cards with your favorite pen. I also embellished the cards a bit with fabric stickers and dimensional stickers!
(these project life pens are my favorite – the 01 size is ideal for my journaling/recipe writing).
Next, use the recipe card die to cut a piece of patterned paper as the base of your project.
Now, you will want to use a really good, strong adhesive to add the paper to your wood frame. I love, love, love the new Sticky Thumb cordless hot glue gun – it’s seriously making my crafty life so much easier!
After gluing this piece to the wood (right over the opening), add some fun die-cut pieces to two corners:
I used a sewing machine to stitch my two recipe cards together at the top – then I glued them right to the center of the patterned piece:
I just had to use some of these colorful dots to embellish the die cut shapes too!
And now for the GIFT part of my project! My favorite way to share cookies is stacked! I have a huge roll of cellophane that I cut to wrap around a stack of delicious cookies – and I tie the top closed.
Now anyone would be happy to get these yummy cookies, just like this…but I can’t give them away quite yet. I must make them cuter! I cut out the preprinted tags from the 12×12 sheet, added a sticker, and a super fun wooden leaf. Of course, I attached the wood piece with my favorite glue!
After layering and gluing all of the tags,
I tied them right onto the cookie stacks with fun baker’s twine:
And now I’m off…because I have cookies to deliver!
