Dressing Up Cookies!!

I wanted to bring a couple cookies to a friend tomorrow and I wanted to dress them up a bit. I suppose Saran Wrap would have been just fine alone but..... I REALLY wanted them to look a little more special than that.

SO after wrapping them up in the Saran Wrap I tied a Pink Pirouette ribbon around them and tied it in a bow. It looked pretty but it still wasn't enough.

Then I thought I would add some type of label on it. I immediately thought of the Sale-a-Brations set that had the "yummy" words on it. But then I would have to try to hunt it down!! The lazies had kicked in!!! LOL I had just used one of the images in the Stampin' Up! "Oval All" set and in that set was this wonderful "Just For You" stamp. It was perfect!!!

I stamped the image on white card stock using Regal Rose ink and then I punched it out with the large oval punch. I stamped the image on Pretty in Pink card stock and punched it out with the scallop punch. I taped the two pieces together and had an adorable label. But how was I going to attach it??? I thought about just taping it to the Saran Wrap but that seemed a bit tacky. SO I got a tiny hole punch and punched a hole through the two layers on the oval. I took several pieces of sewing thread and threaded it through the knot on the ribbon and then through the label. I tied it in a knot and clipped the ends. It was just what the cookies needed. Isn't it cute???

Thanks SO much for visiting today,

What a great idea! I have a lot of ribbon that will be retiring and I think that's even a great idea for my stamp club/card class ladies! TFS! Jeanne
