Aaaaargh!!! Did ye say cookies, matey?!

I participated in a recipe card and cookie exchange with some of my fellow SU! demo's recently! It was so much fun! (and yummy!) We were supposed to decorate a 6 X 6 recipe card and make a dozen cookies per demo to exchange. I made hidden treasure cookies and decorated my card with the Ahoy Matey stamp set from SU!. I used the coordinating wheel for the background and rubbed the edges of the base paper with cranberry crisp ink to give it a tattered and worn treasure map sort of look! I mounted the recipe on black and sponged with cranberry ink. I also roughed up the edges to make it look old! I stamped the chest and cut it open and added a brad to make it look hinged! I used some bling from the Michael's dollar spot to add treasure to the chest and added some sparkle to the water with Stickles. This was such a fun project! I am hoping to do something similar in the future!

In addition to the paper recipe I will include the cookie recipe here! My kids all really love these cookies!

Paper: SU! Close to Cocoa, Cool Carri bean, Real Red, Basic Black and Very Vanilla
Ink: SU! Cranberry Crisp, Brilliant Blue and Basic Black
Stamps: Ahoy Matey! and coordinating Wheel

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut

**Preheat oven to 375. In a small mixing bowl mix graham crumbs, flour and baking powder. Set aside. In a large bowl mix all other ingredients. Combine the two bowls. Drop by rounded teaspoons and bake 9-10 minutes one tray at a time. Enjoy! : )

Very cute recipe page. I keep debating about getting this stamp set and have not done it yet. I have the wheel and used it for my cruise photos. I should really get the stamp set. It is adorable!

I am a fellow SBS2 blogger and look forward to getting to know you better.
