How to Make a Quick Cookie Plate Covercomments (1) December 16th, 2008
Create a one-of-a-kind cookie plate cover for the cookies you distribute this year.
- Pinking shears or decorative-edge scissors
- Wash-away or brush-away marking pen
- Thread, beads, etc. for embellishing
- 1/4-inch-wide satin ribbon
To begin, cut a circle from felt that is 1-1/2 inches larger than your cookie plate. Try using a pair of decorative scissors to create some texture/embellishment along the edges of the cover.
Embellish the top of your cookie plate cover however you'd like. Use a wash-away or brush-away marking pen to draw your design. For this one, I used white thread and beads to create a snowflake! Once you are done embellishing, cut 1/4-inch slits in the felt 1 inch from the edge and approximately 3 inches apart. Weave a 1/4-inch-wide satin ribbon through the slits.
Place the cookies on your plate, cover with a small piece of plastic wrap (we don't want the felt fuzz getting into the cookies!) and then place the cookie cover on top. Gently draw the satin ribbon so that it gathers the cover around the edge of the plate and secure with a bow.
