Isn't it fun??? And it's so, so easy to make! All you need is a set of star-shaped cookie cutters. I have a set of four that I found at Hobby Lobby for super cheap. All different sizes. Made the cookies then iced them and stacked them up! Then added the little edible sprinkles and balls. I think there were three of each size cookie. anyhooo.... I love the recipe... for the icing too!!! So here it is for you... so you can try it out yourself!

Okay.... I'm going to be working away like crazy this coming week on some projects for Bo Bunny so you most likely won't hear from me again until next week sometime. Unless it's some quick Facebook posts. I'm ALWAYS posting over there! HA! But I thought I would leave you with something else that's super sweet! I have a couple of cards in the current issue of Create: Christmas Cards magazine by Northridge Publishing. It always makes me squeal like a kid at Christmas to see my creations in print so I wanted to share! I hope you're all enjoying this Holiday season! Hugs!
