On The Web : Cookie Week Round-up!

Posted by

Last week was "Cookie Week" on The Martha Stewart Show and even though Martha and her guests were busy making and eating scores of delicious cookies, there was still plenty of crafting going on around the set. If you missed any of last week's episodes, be sure to click on the pictures below to get all the how-to information you need to make these great last-minute holiday crafts!

All you need to make these fabulous snowflake wrap treat bags is wax paper, a few snowflake punches, an iron and the bag template download. They are a perfectly personal way to package your most special cookie gifts!

Once you make the snowflake wrap and the treat bags, use any leftover scraps to add a beautiful, wintery look to a hurricane, as a delicate liner for a serving tray, or even as inexpensive, one-of-a-kind gift wrap.

Guest crafter, Connie Meisinger, showed Martha how to use a traditional cookie mold to make vintage-looking ornaments with paper clay and a few simple painting techniques - a creative repurposing of an old-world tool!

Cookie decorator extraordinaire, Dani Fiori, shared her ideas for crafting with cookies with this gorgeous nativity. Who knew the Christmas story could look so good AND be so delicious?!

A great last minute decor idea, these glitter monograms add that extra-special detail to any pre-made stocking. All you need is some felt and a bit of shimmery glitter paint from the Martha Stewart Crafts paint line.

Impress your guests with these handmade favors complete with a tasty treat inside. Whether you fill them with candy or homemade cookies, they are sure to brighten up any holiday table.

Still looking for a great gift for your daughter, granddaughter, or niece? Why not try Brett Bara's one-hour skirt? It uses less than a yard of fabric and a few simple sewing techniques.

Once you've made the one-hour skirt, why not throw in a card decked out with cute litte rhinestone earrings for any occasion - a perfect accessory for a fashionable little (or grown) lady in your life.

Last, but not least, for beautiful packaging in a pinch, head over to your local Michaels and grab a package of Martha Stewart Crafts Snow Lace cookie packaging. These beautiful designs are inexpensive and sure to impress.

Happy Holidays!!
