I have a couple of friends who anticipate my kitchen sink cookies on just about any festive occasion. Valentines day is absolutely a festive reason to send a little sweet box of love. I baked up a batch of the scrumptious wonders, boxed them and created my own little gift tag. I wanted them to look like a Valentine we might have made when we were in grade school. I think I pulled it off?To prepare, I sat on the sofa watching the bachelor and punched holes. I use a three hole punch and stack several sheets of paper.
I think balloons are kind of romantic and sweet. I obviously drew this free hand. You don’t have to worry about making a mistake, because the glue, glitter and holes should cover up an imperfection. Use a small paint brush to apply glue in the balloon.
Tie a small bow with ribbon and glue that to the base of the balloon. I used hot glue for the ribbon. Draw a whimsical outline around the balloon. It shouldn’t look perfect. This is like the Valentines you made when you were a kid. Part of the charm is that it looks handmade. Eat a cookie and package the rest. Okay, wait; eat two cookies… Finish the package with pretty ribbon and attach the card.
