Sweet Sprinkles: Dollar Spot Alert!

Okay, there are SO many cookie/baking related items at the Target dollar spot(some are $2.50) right now, you've just got to go and you'll be set for almost everyone on"your list"! I grabbed a set of the comfort grip (Bashful Blue!) cookie cutters and a set of assorted sprinkles, with a quick plan to dress them up! I thought it added a bit of "magic" and fun to deem each sprinkle with the power to make "smart" or "cute" cookies, hee hee! so I gave each one a label I adhered to the top of the plastic sleeve container directly above each sprinkle can, changing out the words to make the different cookies. When someone takes them out they'll be able to open the bottle and shake the sprinkles out, but then put them back in the sleeve and the labels will all line up again.

The white CS is cut with a 1" circle punch, the larger Real Red or Garden Green mat is 1 1/4" punch. I tied a festive bow with one of the ribbon from the Gina K Pure Luxury assortment, put it in abasket with my cutters and some mix, and my gift is done! Great for a neighbor or family with kids to use all season long*! :)


*This same idea could be carried over to a decorating kit for Easter cookies, fall cookies etc just by selecting a different color or shaped sprinkles set... ;)

What a brilliant way to put together a gift. This is the cutest thing ever. The labels are sweet sweet sweet! You must use 98.9 percent of your brain or at least 99.90 percent of the creative part of it! TOO cute! :O)

What a cute idea! Your Target must be better than my target, I stopped in there twice, and really didn't find anything good. Oh well.

I love the dollar spot and I got these same things last year, my cutters were lined with red and they had a full set of 15 of the mini cutters and they are sooo cute for sugar cookies!
