Following the Retail's Store Example!

So I am walking through Hobby Lobby because we were out of googly eyes in our craft box which is a level orange emergency. Running out of sequins is level red (just for comparison!). Anyhoo Hobby Lobby was dismantling and condensing the beautiful fall and Halloween displays to make room for more Christmas! Now don't get me wrong I love Christmas but not in October - let me enjoy the costumes, the candy, and the turkey before I have to think about stockings, wrapping paper and ham.
But I am now following the store's example and I am throwing a Christmas project out there for Cosmo Cricket's latest challenge to use Jolly By Golly or Mitten Weather in a project. I am using Jolly by Golly because I don't have the Mitten Weather collection and desperately need it - the purple in it would be perfect for my daughter! See post below for her top five favorites - purple is right there after danger!
I made these cookie decorating kits for my best friends because (a) I love them and their children (b) when I bake it is always a disaster - better they do it and live through eating them! and (c) ultimately I am hoping to get some cookies back as a thank you!
First I made a gift bag and then decorated it with the borders and elements from the Jolly by Golly line. I filled each one with icing, cookie mix and sprinkles.  These would also make great teacher gifts that can be produced assembly line style! And as Amory says "They are super stinkin cute!"





Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day,
