This year I finally made the Mardi Gras mask cookies I've been wanting to since 2009! That year I made mask cookies to sell at our parish Mardi Gras festival. This year, I cut out the eyes, added sticks for holding, and decorated them with ribbons. I love them!
I've also wanted to figure out a way to make a ribbon spool holder for when I have to make bows for packaging or in this case, decorating. I didn't want anything permanent, so I used a couple screw in hooks, S hooks (paper clips that I pulled apart!), and an old curtain rod. It worked great! I will leave the screw hooks in but take down the paper clips and rod.
Now for more celebration prep....Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler!
