Cookie Bouquet

I recently came across a crafting blog that I absolutely adore called "And Then She Made" by a crafting diva named Amy. She has some great ideas and I have already bookmarked several of them.
One of her ideas was this very cute cookie bouquet you can easily use as a Thank You gift. I made one for a neighbor of mine who as been going through a bit of a rough patch. I wanted to give her a little pick-me-up and I also wanted to say thank you for the farm fresh eggs we occasionally receive (and LOVE) from her. The bouquet was pretty simple to make.
The little pots came from JoAnn's fall clearance section. A set of 3 was only $5. I bought a piece of floral foam there as well. I stole the grass from one of my autumn centerpieces, the rub-ons came from my stash and hubby picked up the cookies, spice drops and skewers for me. It was fun, easy and VERY well-received.
On another note, I have been crafting and card making here and there and I have a list of projects I'd love to be working on. But, my back is keeping me from being too productive. I am trying to adjust to a new doctor's plan and so far it's not been a joyful experience. I would appreciate your prayers! And in the mean time I just may be a bit more regular with blogging as the laptop is my friend. And I have photographed several projects over the last few months, just not put them online! You may see more than just paper projects although papercrafting is my first love!
Hope you're having a great day wherever you may be!
Comment if you've got the time.
I would love to hear from you!

What a cute idea - I'll have to give this a try. Was soooo good seeing a new post - I check in every day just in case. I left a comment for you on your Oct 27 post but it didn't show up - hope you received it - just was wanting you to know I'm here for you. Hugs and blessings

This bouquet is adorable. Would love to know what kind of cookies you used as it is hard to tell. I would love to make one of these.
