Cooking With Cricut Challenge: Cookies, Cookie Monster and/or Clocks

Today's blog post is brought to you by
the letter C and the number 13!

"C" is for cookies, Cookie Monster, Clocks and Cooking With Cricut!  Thirteen (13) is the number of Design Team members who whipped up some fantastic projects to share with you today!   

We are celebrating our favorite furry blue monster's birthday, his favorite food (chocolate chip cookies), and the impending time change this weekend.  I managed to get all three things into one project using only one cartridge (if you can believe it)!

I call this "Cookie Time" . . .

And yes, it is a working clock . . . made of paper!!!  Here's the recipe:

Using the Sesame Street Friends cartridge I made the following cuts:
  • Cookie -- cut three times.  Once out of chipboard (the base), second time out of a 12" x 12" sheet of Bazzill Basics Cinnamon Stick card stock and the third time out of Bazzill Basics Brown card stock (for the chocolate chips).  The cookie measures 11 1/2" high.
  • Cookie Monster is cut at 6 3/4" high from black (base) and a bright blue by Recollections.
  • The numbers are cut at 3/4" high from red (scrap).
I inked the edges of my cookie with a brown ink pad to give it that "baked" look.  The doodling on my numbers was done with a white gelly roll pen.  Using a matte finish Modge Podge, I glued the cookie to the chipboard.  Then I added all of the other cuts and an additional two coats of Modge Podge over the whole thing to seal it.  The clock movement is by Walnut Hollow and is designed for use on 1/4" thick clock faces.

And now, it's your turn . . . so come and play, where every thing's a-okay!  Link up your cookie, Cookie Monster and/or clock project at Cooking With Cricut -- you could be our next Top Chef!  Head on over and see what this amazing Design Team has created and check out our link-up guidelines.
