iPod Cookie Tutorial, Cookie Challenge Link-Up & Free Printable Tags

Do you like music? Do you have kids? These cookies are for everyone. Want to make some fun iPod cookies? Well then join me and we'll have a fun link-up party so everyone can share their iPod cookies. The rounded rectangle cookie cutter I used for this project is from CheapCookieCutters.com. It is a nice size cookie in 5 x 3. Here's what we will be making today:

Bake your cookies using your rounded rectangle cookie cutter.
 Since I'm a crazy perfectionist, I wanted all my iPod cookies to be the same so I created a template which you can download too (see below).
 I used my homemade template to project the image onto my cookie using a KopyKake projector. You can definitely skip this step and simply make rectangles and circles, but if you're super crazy like me then see below. This shows how the template is projected onto a cookie.
 To get your own copy of my homemade iPod template, just click this picture below and you can download it and print it for your own use:
Outline all your cookies if you prefer. I've made these iPod cookies outlined and also not outlined and my personal preference is to outline as I like the way it shows the detail and makes the colors pop.
 Next fill the white circle part. You want to start with this part so that it will dry while you work on the other parts because you'll need to come back to add the detail and you don't want the colors to bleed.
Next fill the screen area grey.
Then fill all the iPod colors. This iPod template is of a 2nd generation iPod which is one of the versions that I have and really like. The newer version is very small and I didn't think would make a very fun cookie, so I used the 2nd generation. I used the colors of the latest version to decorate my iPod cookies.

To make the pink iPods, I used Spectrum Fuchsia and then added some Spectrum Electric Pink. To make the lime green iPods, I used Spectrum Electric Green. For the blue iPods, I used Spectrum Royal Blue and lastly for the gold iPods, I used Spectrum Gold and added in some Spectrum Lemon Yellow.
I love my iPod and use it (in one ear only) on every bike ride and also at home when hubby is listening to politics loud. ;-) I even bought an additional iPod in 2010 when I rode my bike for 24 hours straight just in case the first iPod wouldn't stay on long enough for my 400-mile ride journey.
Here are my iPod cookies all bagged and ready for a friend. What? You want the bag toppers too? Ok... see below.
I made this cookie bag topper for you to use, just click on the picture below and you'll be taken to Box.net to download and print your own cookie tags. Enjoy!
and for those that missed the fun background of these iPod cookies
That's it for our tutorial today. Now I want to see YOUR iPod cookies. They are really easy to make and quick too. Join us for this cookie challenge and link up a picture of your iPod cookies!
