Fantabulous Cricut - National Bake and Decorate Month

Happy Bake and Decorate Month!  This week at Fantabulous Cricut, we're celebrating the month by creating a bake-themed project with our Cricut.  I love to bake, and have a family that loves to eat my baking!  I tend to stick to cookies and squares though.  I wanted to create something to do with baking, but I challenged myself to connect it to some actual baking as well.
For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know that I do something I call "Lunchbox Loveletter Lundi" (lundi is French for Monday).  I like to tuck little handmade cards and notes into the lunches of my family members.  This week, each of my favourite people will get a pouch holding a cookie.  I'd wanted to put two cookies in the pouches, but they just didn't fit!

I used Sesame Street Friends for this project.  I cut the jar at 5.5 - first with the blackout feature, and then the top layer.  I cut two of these for each pouch - with one flipped.  I also cut out the letters to spell "COOKIES" and the little cookies for the top of the jar.  I inked everything and also added some white pen dots.  Once the front was all assembled and ready to go, I attached it to the flipped blackout, but left the top open in order to create a pouch.
I then cut tags using the cookie image at 2.5.  This was also done using the blackout feature and then the next layer feature.  I punched a little hole in each tag and attached some raffia, which I then tied around a baggie holding a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie. 

Come on over to Fantabulous Cricut and use your Cricut to create a new project with a baking theme!  I'd love to see your creation!

Wow! Thank you very much Kate! I am thrilled to win the "It's the Thought stamp set"! I know I will use it a lot because is so versatile when you mask off either the sentiment or the image.
