Recipe for a Cookie Swap!

I just returned home from my annual Cookie Swap.   I have some of the best friends in the world and for the 9th year in a row we got together for our annual Cookie Swap.  We started out as a group of friends that loved to scrapbook and the amazing thing is - we all worked together.   Even though some of the girls no longer scrapbook and we've kind of scattered to other departments or jobs, we have remained friends through out these past 9 years.  It is a night full of laughs, remembering good times, and of course LOTS of great cookies!  

Since I have Close To My Heart's new Art Philosophy cricut cartridge, of course I had to make my recipe into a Christmas tag!   

For my Recipe Card I cut a 6" tag using Shift Tag <Tree 1>.  This tag has a little cut out tree on it. To get the recipe onto the tag, I typed the recipe into a text box in Word.  I then printed out a copy on a sheet of paper.  Next, using removeable adhesive, I attached the tag to the sheet of paper with the recipe on it Close To My Heart's Believe paper.  This one is a plan tag (no cut out tree).  I cut this tag at 6 1/4".  I then cut a small tree <tree 1> at 2" in Sweet Leaf Cardstock to apply to the center of the cut out tree on the recipe card.

Here are my finished cards tied onto my cookie boxes!

Here are all the cookies!  How CUTE!  and oh so good!
