Back to School – Already!

Back to School Wafer Paper

Back to School Wafer Paper

Is it already that time of the year? We are amazed with how fast the warm summer months are cruising by – but enjoying every second of and we hope you are too! We just got these fab new Back to School Wafer Paper patterns in and wanted to share with you! The patterns are truly too cute for words! The collection includes colorful wafer paper globe, composition book, dictionary pages, and Dick & Jane book pages. A great project to start the kids off on the right foot for their first day back at school – what child (or adult, for that matter) wouldn’t love seeing these in their lunch box?!

For the globe we used our Stainless Steel Globe Cookie Cutter, for the open books we used our Book Cookie Cutter  and for the composition book we used a simple rectangular cookie cutter. Patterns are sized perfectly to fit these cutters.

Make perfect cookies every time with our No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe, Royal Icing and Edible Clear Writing Gel for securing the wafer paper images.

We are stocking up everything in our Back to School collection – check it out HERE.
