Bow Tie Cookie Card

Hi Crafters and Bakers! One of my favorite days of the month is here! It's time for the Cookie/Card Challenge I do w/ my cousin, Georganne. She has a FABULOUS cookie/cake blog called LilaLoa. Her designs are fabulous and her writing is amazing. I wish I had her skill w/ words. :) With this challenge I get to take one of her cookie designs and make a craft project with it and she will take one of my paper projects and turn it into a cookie!

Here are her cookies that inspired my paper creation.  You can see her post HERE.

I just LOVE her bright colors and those are just the cutest bow ties.  You have to see her blog on how she made those little men.  She made them w/ a bell cookie cutter!  Anywho, here is my take on it:

I thought I could use this for a graduation card or something like that.  To make the elongated neck basically cut out a long thin rectangle and put it behind a shirt from Paper Doll Dress Up and a large head.  The head and shirt are cut at 9.9".

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to go to Georgeanne's blog to see what she made off of one of my paper projects.  :)
