I've been baking again

This past weekend, our middle school's 7th & 8th grade choir, orchestra, and band groups travelled to Idaho to perform in the Music in the Parks program at Silverwood Theme Park. The kids did a fantastic job, earning excellent and superior scores in every category they competed in. The 8th grade symphonic band took best band in their category over all middle and high schools at the competition. The entire music department (over 200 kids!) took the Esprit de Corps award based on overall behavior, performance, and attitude. What an accomplishment!

While the kids work really hard themselves, none of this would have been possible without the dedication, effort, and commitment of time given by our fabulous music directors. So, to thank them for all they do, I made these fun sugar cookies and gifted them in these decorated boxes.

The cookies are a little rough since it was my first time playing with these designs. I'll do a better job next time. But, I knew they would still appreciate the thought behind the gift.

For the box, I just used a candy box, then taped it shut with some washi tape from my stash. I think it might be from Pink Paislee. Then, I just cut some strips of Onyx amuse cardstock to create the music bar, cut the treble clef with my Making Memories Slice machine, and used a Quickutz Harvest 4x8 alphabet for the 'thank you' using amuse Cobalt blue cardstock. And, of course, it HAD to be finished off with some pretty, clear Twinkle dots.
