How to make a Cookie Craft
Step 1: Cut Out a Bite
- Cut a scallop pattern in your paper plate, about 2 inches down. It should look like someone has taken a big bit out of the plate.
Step 2: Color the Cookie
- Turn the plate over so that it is bottom side up on your crafting surace.
- Use crayons or markers to color the bottom of the plate entirely. We used brown to imitate the look of a chocolate chip cookie.
Step 3: Add the Chips
- From scraps of black construction paper, cut little circle for the chips. They shouldn’t be perfect circles since chips are perfectly round.
- Use your glue stick to attach the chips to the paper plate cookie in a random pattern.
Step 4 (Optional): Make the Pouch
- If you’d like to turn this cookie into a pouch, repeat steps 1 through 3 to make an identical chocolate chip cookie craft.
- Sandwich the cookies together so that the “bite” is lined up and there is a pouch in the center.
- Staple all around the outside edge, keeping the staples about an inch apart.
Step 5(Optional): Add a Handle
- To finish off the cookie pouch, punch a hole on either side of the “bite” cutout.
- Cut 5 lengths of white yarn, about 1 yard long each.
- Tie a few knots randomly to hold the lengths of yarn together.
- Lace the ends of the yarn through each of the holes and tie a knot to keep it in place.
- Snip the ends of the yarn as needed.
