Cookies for Santa Card

Who doesn’t love a good homemade cookie? Even Santa loves receiving a plate of cookies during the holidays.   This quick and easy to make card is a fun way to share some cookies with those you know.

Begin this card, by creating a 5” x 7” card base from cardstock.  For this card, white cardstock was chosen for the base.  Use a paper trimmer to easily cut the card stock and a scoring board to get a crisp fold on it.

Patterned Paper

Now trim a piece of patterned paper (Night Before Christmas by Graphic 45 shown) to measure 2 ¼” x 7”.

Tear

Tear off approximately ¼” to give it a torn look and to expose the white edge.  It doesn’t have to be perfect so don’t worry if it’s not exactly ¼” that is torn off.

Attach Torn Piece

Cut a piece of green cardstock to measure 2 ½” and layer it over the top of the patterned paper and attach them to the base using a tape runner.  Note:  The jar die that you have may be wider so be sure to measure it and cut the green cardstock so that the jar will fit onto it.

Cut the jar out using a die and stamp the shape onto it in black ink.

Jar

 

Cut a 10” piece of Baker’s Twine and lay it behind the jar die cut.

Jar

Glue Baker's Twine

Add a line of glue (Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue shown) across the front of the jar lid to help hold the twine in place. Tie the two pieces making sure that they are in the line of glue.  Allow it to dry.

Tie a Bow

Once the glue has dried, finish tying the bow.

Finish

Turn the jar over and cut the center of the twine off leaving a small amount of twine on each end.  Add a dot of glue and stick the twine ends into the glue until they hold.  This will help the back of the jar not to be so bulky when placing it onto the card.

Punch Circles

It’s time for the cookies!  Punch 7 circles from brown cardstock using a 1” or smaller circle punch.  For more fun, use a different shaped punch such as a small snowflake or star.  Lay them aside for a moment.

Sentiment Tag

Make a sentiment tag using a die (Fancy Label Tags One by Spellbinders shown) and die cut machine or a favorite punch.

Stamp the sentiment using this “handmade for you” stamp by Hero Arts or the Martha Stewart Custom Setting Stamp Kit to create your own message and black ink.

Attach Sentiment

Attach the sentiment and the cookies using the tape runner.

Stickles

Finish the card by adding small dots of Stickles (Diamond Stickles used here) to represent decorations on the cookies.  Allow them to completely dry and your card is ready to use.

Are you a part of a cookie exchange this year?  This card makes the perfect thing to include with a plate of cookies.  Surprise your child and make one for him or her.  No matter how you share it, the gift of something made with love is what matters the most this holiday season.

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
