Valentine's Cookie Bouquet

A few years back my sweet friend Lacey brought me a cookie bouquet for Valentines.

I'm still kicking myself for not taking a picture of it.

I can almost guarantee it was cuter than this one that I made.

Everything Lacey creates comes out beautiful.

Anyway, I thought I'd make some this year to give to the people I love.

All you need is:
A bucket
Styrofoam
skewers
fudge striped cookies
gum drops
gummy hearts
shredded party paper stuff ;) (refer to picture below)
and ribbon (optional)

Start with an upside down gumdrop and cookie...
Top that with another cookie and a heart shaped gummy...

Make 5-7 of the cookie flowers.


I also made some hearts and attached them to skewers...
my silhouette did most the work. ;)



Place your Styrofoam in the bucket and poke your skewers in to create the bouquet look.


Fill the bucket with the shredded paper and tie a ribbon around the bucket.
All done!

SO cute and easy... I think I could actually find the time to make those (that is if I don't eat all the cookies first, it is a serious problem lately)!
