milk & cookies {a mini party for lawn fawn}

hi there!

this month's lawn fawn party is a yummy one...

milk & cookies

Create some decor using the new milk & cookies and violet's abcs stamp sets, bake up a batch of chocolate chip cookies, and suddenly it's a party.

This would make the perfect little anniversary or valentine's day card too! I added some free-handed cow print throughout the decor, (and by free-handed, I mean it was me and a black copic marker, squiggling and splotching all over the place) starting with this invitation.

These labels are my favorite. I love the white border left around the die-cut edge, and the variation of color you get by sponging the ink on.  Violet's ABCS are so perfect, with that little fancy "and" in the middle, don't you think?

The cookies on top don't hurt either. My kids loved this after-school snack!

I made a simple flag to decorate the plate of cookies, swapping out the double o's for two cookies and coloring everything to look like baked goodies.  To create the double-ended banner, I used the one-sided flag, (from the large stitched journaling card die set) sending it halfway through my Big Shot, and then flipping it over and doing the same on the other side. easy peasy. I also did the same thing for the milk & cookies banner on the invitation you saw above.

Every party needs a take-home favor.

I scribbled on the fancy cow-print again, added a little tag and tucked a couple of cookies inside. These were for my hubs, who couldn't party with us after school. A consolation prize, ha.

I hope you like my milk & cookies party! Hop over to the lawn fawn blog for a link to the chocolate chip cookie recipe I've been using for years - it's foolproof, especially if you slightly underbake the cookies. YUM!
