Penguin Cookie Holders with Elena!

Psssst... Guess what? We might just have something fun planned for Black Friday. Keep an eye out late tomorrow night! :)

Elena shares a cute cookie holder project! This is an adorable way to present a fun cookie gift or a cute way use cookies as decorations!

These penguin cookies are just too cute with their sweet rosy cheeks! 

  Here's a quick tutorial for making cookie holders for your decorated cookies.
 Cut your cardstock to dimensions shown in photo and score at highlighted lines. (For this example; score at 1" on short sides, 1 1/2" on long sides)

 Then, on the longer edges, use the snowdrift die (from Stitched Hillside Borders) to cut the top and bottom. Cut as shown in photo (you may need to cut down the middle flap depending on the angle of your snowdrift. Assemble the box and adhere it to the backing.
For the backing piece, Snowy Backdrop adds the pretty snow and star design while Bannerific and a sentiment from Critters in the Arctic pull the snowy theme together!
Thank you so much for this adorable project idea, Elena! We just love your awesome holiday inspiration!
