Let's Get Crafty {7 more weeks}

Seven more weeks until Chirstmas!

Are you starting to get some gift ideas together already? I'm trying. This year I'm trying to get a head start on lots of good ideas that won't cost me an arm and a leg! With a little creativity, a little extra planning time, and Pinterest, you can come up with some cute ideas for inexpensive gifts!
This week I'm calling all cookie makers! If you enjoy baking cookies for friends and family as a special gift, then you should like these pinterest finds for the week!

Use recycled Pringles cans for a snazy delivery!
With some decorative paper (scrapbook or wrapping), and some cute ribbon, you can deliver your famous cookies in style! I LOVE this and will have to try it!

This cookie is just too cute for words!
Find the recipe at allrecipes.com

Does your plain sugar cookie need some spunk?
With a little food coloring, sprinkles, and some rolling action, you can make some very festive cookies!

Lastly, if you run out of time to actually bake the cookies, just throw the ingredients in a jar, slap a ribbon on top, and let your friends do the baking! :)
I hope you can use some of these crafty ideas!
If you try one of these crafts, be sure to post a picture on the FB fan page!


  Seven more weeks!


  1. Ok, I certainly don't want the reminder that Christmas is so close! lol ;) I'm just focusing on getting through this week. But I have seen the idea of using Pringles cans for cookies and I'm going to be using that one. I might have to try some of these recipes too. Thanks for the help, Lindsay. :)

  2. Great ideas Lindsay! I just happen to have some empty Pringles cans left over from our road trip :)
