holiday cookies

     From basic sugar varieties to elaborate gingerbread creations, holiday cookies are fun and festive gifts for the season. Nestle them into a decorative box, reminiscent of a pretty tin, and do the same for a joyous gathering of carnations. A gingerbread-inspired doll easily adds on as well.

Materials: carnations and Galax leaves courtesy of FTD Flower Exchange; Merry and Mod Boxes, Ornament Cookies and Yummy Yuletide Yarnball Buddy from burton + BURTON; cellophane from Highland Supply Corporation; Ultimate Liner from FloraCraft.
