Cookies For Santa!

12/21/2016 | Lynn Lilly
Hello, Lorrie here! When I was a little girl, one of my favorite parts of Christmas Eve was leaving cookies for Santa. After all, everybody knows that Santa gets really hungry on his travels around the world! This year, I am keeping that tradition alive with this cookie display using Deflecto frames and sign holders.
Materials Needed:
red, brown, white, and black cardstock
Christmas patterned paper
red and white bakers twine
red and white ribbon
adhesive, adhesive foam dots, and glue dots
Cricut die-cutting machine, “From My Kitchen” and “Base Camp” cartridges
red rhinestones and black enamel dots
Sign Holder instructions:
Cut red cardstock to 5″x7″. Cut patterned paper to 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″. Cut white cardstock to 3″x5″. Layer and adhere. Cut out cookies and gingerbread man (both at 1 1/2″) and the word “cookies” (1″) from the “From My Kitchen” cartridge. Cut “for Santa” from “Base Camp” cartridge. Glue words onto white cardstock. Decorate gingerbread man die-cut with red rhinestones and black enamel dots. Adhere gingerbread man and cookies to corners of paper using foam dots. Clip card onto sign holder.
Wrap stem of magnetic sign holder with red and white bakers twine, adhering both ends with glue dots.
Tie bow with some ribbon, attach it to clip at the top of the sign holder with glue dots.
Frame instructions:
Write your favorite cookie recipe on a 4″x6″ card. Layer onto a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of red cardstock. Place inside the curved magnetic frame.
Attach die cut gingerbread man to the outside of the frame with adhesive foam dots.
Tie a bow in the ribbon. Attach to the corner of the frame with glue dots.
