Unveiling the new project


I have a new project I have been working on this week. I was at my LSS on Tuesday and saw that they were having a class on altering the Starbucks Frapuccino holders and filling them with sugar cookie mix. They wanted 25.00 for the class and I wasn't even wild about the paper they used. I decided to come home and make my own. After a trip to the store and force feeding my daughter to drink them, I began to make it myself. I used the holiday paper from Stampin' Up to make it. It was easy but time consumming trying to decide what should be covered and with what. But I am pleased with it in the end. The cookie cutter was from Hobby Lobby and they are 2/.50. The only thing I plan to change before handing these out to my friends/family is I plan to run out and see if I can find some sugar sprinkles and possibly a small wooden rolling pin. The mix is Krusteaz Holiday Sugar cookie mix and I got it at Costco. It comes in a huge box with about 8 pouches in it. Each pouch will fill 2 jars completely full (I had to pack it in there tight)
I plan to put in 4 jars per holder so that 2 batches can be made. Directions were put on a tag and tied on with the cutter. Hope you like my copy-cat project!
