Cookie instructions:

Roll out and cut cookies into shapes.

Before baking insert stick into the cookie. (I tried the method suggested on the cookie stick bag and it did not work. After several tries, inserting the stick in the cookie before baking worked the best for me.)

Place cookie and stick on backing sheet covered in parchment paper. (About 4 cookies will fit depending on the size of your cookie sheet.)

Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until bottom gets golden brown.

Let cookies cool on cookie sheet.

Use icing and tips to decorate.

Pail instructions:

Cut and hot glue ribbon around pail.

Take flower off at stem.

Hot glue flower to cover area where ribbon comes together.

Cut floral foam to fit pail.

Hot glue floral foam to bottom of pail.

Cut and place plastic grass over floral foam.

Insert and arrange cookies into floral foam.
