Clear and Simple Stamps Release in Review: Sweet Treats + Favors

Did somebody say sweet treats?

Guys, I will use any, and I mean ANY excuse to whip up a batch of cookies... because, cookies will not bring on comments like "aw, mom - do we have to eat this?" and "it looks disgusting, but I'm sorry if that hurts your feelings!"  No, with cookies I get squeals and giddy whoops and "these are the most delicious cookies ever" and even "baby, you're the best!"

So yes, I did use my project today as an excuse to make a batch of butterscotch chip cookies... hee.

It's always fun to think of different ways to display treats at a party.  Here, I grabbed my daughters' jewelry stand, and clipped up cookie sleeves (made with the mini tri-fold die.)  I layered some favor flag die cuts in fun patterned papers over the lip of the tri-fold die, and created a medallion that is only adhered to the top portion in order to allow access to the favor inside.

To create the main image, I started out by stamping the fabulous damask background in a sunny yellow ink.  Next, I curved the sentiment (from the favor flags stamp set) and stamped a tiny aqua heart (from wrap-a-round) before adding my stamped plate of cookies (from the apothecary set.)

 After all the stamped and assembling was done, I wrapped the cookies in plastic wrap, and used a tiny bit of tape to stick them to the inside of the tri-fold die cut.

All that's left to do: un-clip, open, and enjoy (and trust me, I did.)
