Okay, I get so giddy every time I look at this picture because I think it is so darn cute! I know a lot of people right now who are going through a variety of challenges. I plan on making many more of these - this was my prototype. I made this post card and tied it on to a styrofoam container that I filled with cookies.
I used kraft paper for the post card and cookie. I printed out the saying on white cardstock. I punched two small circles with my Spellbinders die cuts. I cut out the cookie with my 2" Marvy punch and then free style cut a bite out of the cookie. You could use a scallop punch to cut out the bite. I inked with brown around the cookie, pasted on the eyes, drew in brown circles for the eyes and chocolate chips, and drew on a mouth. I pasted the cookie on the white card stock and drew in the arms and legs. I cut a couple small strips of black cardstock and pasted them above the eyes to give the cookie a tough look. My next cookie I am going to draw in some crumbs at the feet. I pasted the white card stock on to the kraft paper leaving some room to punch a couple holes to feed a ribbon through. I wrote a little message on the postcard before tying it on the container. I also added a recipe for the cookies that were inside.
These are the cookies I made...
This is a recipe I found on the Seven Sisters blog. This is one of the fifteen blogs I gave an award to (click here to see awards) . These cookies are called Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies - and boy are they good. I am always on the hunt for a new delicious cookie recipe that has some healthy ingredients in them. I cut the icing drizzle in half and it was plenty. I used sultana raisins instead of golden - only because I didn't have golden on hand - and it tastes good.

How many people do you know who could use a "tough cookie" gift package?
Thanks for looking!
