St Patty’s day cookies and free printable

My good friend Kim invited me and the girls up yesterday to make cookies-she wanted some royal icing/sugar cookie tips, and well, I always love frosting cookies so I was totally game! We made shamrocks of course, but I didn’t have a pot of gold cookie cutter or anything, so I got creative (yeah super duper creative lol) with a circle and scalloped square. My favorite part of frosting cookies is the decorating-after the filling and outlining part is over. That’s where the creative juices can start to flow! Hence all the “lucky” phrases and such.
My letters are getting better too-practice makes….er, better. I think we both had a lot of fun, and those shamrocks on the bottom right and top left? Yeah those were the only two decent ones…the rest we tried didn’t work out. They are trickier to make than they look!
In other news, I got an iphone and am now officially addicted to Instagram!

I packaged the cookies up to hand out to some family and friends, and made some labels for 4×6″ cellophane bags (which I get at my local craft store), and are available for you to print here!
See an easy way to assemble them here.
You could also fill some bags with chocolate coins or Rolo candies, or rainbow candy.
yum now I’m hungry! 😉
