WMS SOAP - Stamp of Approval Parade Day 2 - Home Cooked Vittles

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamp of Approval Parade (SOAP) Day 2!  (See yesterday's post for more details about the 4 day DT parade)

Today - I have chosen to highlight Back in the Saddle.


I found this great little washtub container at CVS for $1.99 and thought it was perfect for a Western theme treat holder.  I stamped the sentiment and die cut it with my Classic Frame from Spellbinders.  I sponged the frame and around the sentiment before taking it out of the die.  Since the die cuts the center part out - I just taped it back together from the back.  I trimmed off the bottom portion and adhered it inside the little tub.
 
I stamped the blanket background stamp onto grosgrain ribbon.  I adhered some of it across the frame and some around the tub.  I wrapped twine around the tub three times and tied a bow.
 
I baked these star sugar cookies and adhered the punched stamped stars to the centers with frosting and put dabs of frosting on each star point.  A great little favor for a Western theme party don't you think??
 
Now please check out the inspiring creations from the other DT who are 'marching' in the parade today!  Just click on the links below!  Hope you can stop by tomorrow for Parade Day #3!

100% adorable and DELICIOUS! What a great idea to decorate with those stars with a dab of frosting and stamped images! That will help me for many kids' birthday parties to come...and I won't have to "ruin" a bunch of cookies with frosting mix ups!
