Nom, Nom! Freshly made paper Christmas Cookies!

My private art students and I had a great time doing this project. She's already uber  talented and I thought this would be a great thing to use to decorate at home for the season. First we painted just the edge around a paper plate. Then when dry, glued a decorative doily to the plate.

All we did was trace around cookie cutters (metal ones) or premade tracers onto manilla 'cookie colored' paper or brown 'gingerbread' paper-cut out. Then we used oil pastels to 'frost' and decorate. They for an added touch (to me it really made it fun), we used fabric paint to 'pipe' the frosting on. Before the piped frosting dried, we sprinkled clear 'sugar' glitter along with some other colored ones for sprinkles and also drew some sprinkles on with the oil pastels. We also used sequins and jewels for 'candy pieces' to decorate. Then overlap a bit and glue to the plate. Done!
