What better way to sign off, than to feature Mama Elephant stamps on an "anything goes" project! (ps, I was told, after I submitted my project, that twine is an optional bonus for this challenge.)
As soon as Marlyn (of Montreal Confections) showed me this panda cookie, it was a no-brainer. I would ink up ME's pandamonium stamp set, and have a match made in crafty heaven.
The packaging was so fun to create. I started out with a clear box (meant to package card sets!) and cut a piece of blue cardstock to fit inside. You can see, in the side-view photo, how the blue paper was scored to curl around the inside of the box. I used ME's landscape trio dies to adhere the clouds and the grassy panels to the front of the box, on the outside. Inside the box, The panda is nestled into paper scraps. They do the job of filling the empty space and keeping him secure inside the packaging.
I love how the stamped panda is looking adoringly at the flower-holding-cookie panda...
My friend Marlyn created a video tutorial on how to create this panda cookie. Even if you aren't a cookie decorator, click on the link - it's amazing to see her at work!
Simon Says Stamp is giving away a 50$ voucher for this week's challenge. I hope you join in!
