To create the box I used one of the files from this set by SVG Cuts and decorated it using elements from the collection. The bicycle was printed using one of the digital elements in this accompanying digital set here. The pink was too bright so I just printed in black and white! The sticker forms the prefect seal on top and a little twine adds just a little more color.
First of all I created the little dates to put inside the cookies. I simply printed them onto on a sheet of matte photo paper and then used some stickers from the Collection Kit to decorate them. I set these out in PowerPoint using a simple pink banner shape for the background and a matching Windows font called PlayBill.
To create the cookies following the tutorial below, I suggest using the 6×6 paper pad as the paper is a slightly lighter weight which makes it easier to form the cookie shape.
- Cut circles from the paper – these are about 3 inches wide
- Fold paper circle in half – make sure you have your fortune tucked inside!
- Use finger to bend at the midway point
- Continue to bend paper to form the cookie shape
- Place a small blog of strong glue near the fold
- Use a small peg or clip to hold together until glue dries
This is such a simple idea and really fun to make. Once you have mastered the technique you could easily use these for wedding or party favors, table decoration or packaging for a small gift.
