I used the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge to cut flower shapes out of pink polka dot cardstock, and the Elmo Party cartridge for the Elmo shapes and the letters. To give the letters a little more dimension, I did a white layer under the red. Then strung them all together with some narrow red ribbon.
I am not a professional cookie decorator (clearly), but love to try my hand at making cute cutout cookies.
The recipes I used for the cookies:
Note: the eyes are Wilton Candy Melts with dots of black icing
The Elmo cookie cutter was purchased from http://www.cheapcookiecutters.com/
