I'm a little bit obsessed with Elf items now that Abigail will be enjoying her second Christmas and her little brother is due to be born any day now. I was so busy this week and wanted to make an Elf cookie cutter but didn't have time, so I put a request out to some of my cookie friends and offered a contest. They could submit a design to me within my specifications for the elf and I would choose the design that came the closest to what I had in mind and send that person a free cookie cutter. The winner was Marlene of She Bakes, so my new Elf cookie cutter is named Marlene :-)
Here is the design that Marlene sent to me.
and the cookie cutter that I made
then I outlined my design
and I made my first Elf cookie. I fell in love with him, yes, he's a him and he's named Marlene. I'm okay with that.
Then I made several more.
And I shared some free printable elf cookie tags that you can download and personalize by clicking here.
I bought little Abigail some Elf pajamas to match my new cookie cutter. What a cutie patootie!
Mellissa asked her where the Elf is and here's what happened :-)
