If you are a Cricut user, then you know the amount of projects you are capable of are practically limitless. But have you ever considered using your Cricut machine to decorate your Christmas cookies?
Decorating sugar cookies is my FAVORITE way to use my Cricut machine.
That's right! I use my Crricut machine to make cookie stencils that I can use with either my airbrush or royal icing to decorate sugar cookies.
Back when I ran my cottage law bakery, being able to design and make my own cookie stencils using my Cricut machine was a total game changer. It only takes a few minutes in Cricut Design Space to put together a project, a few more minutes to cut out the stencil with a Cricut machine, and then you can decorate a ton of cookies in no time! Plus you can use the stencil over and over again.
I'm so excited to share with you my new online course for Creating Christmas Cookie Stencils With Cricut. In the course you'll learn how to make all of the stencils that I decorated the cookies in this post with. I'll show you how to make different types of stencils including simple silhouette stencils, plaid stencils, background stencils, multi-layered stencils, edged stencils, and coordinating message and frame stencils. Plus you'll get access to an exclusive Facebook group for students where you'll be able to ask questions, share your cookie designs, and see more cookie decorating demonstrations throughout the holiday season.
Sound interesting? Here's what else you'll need to implement what you learn from this class:
To make the Christmas cookie stencils designed in this class you'll need:
- a Cricut Machine
- A device with Cricut Design Space (I prefer to use a laptop)
- A StrongGrip Mat
- A Cricut Scraper
- A Cricut Spatula
- 4mm 12x12 inch stencil blanks
- a weeding tool
- a brayer
- Cricut Access Subscription Plan
Once the stencils are cut out and ready to use to decorate your cookies, you will need:
- completely dried royal iced cookies
- a stencil frame (such as a Stencil Genie)
- a food grade airbrush
- airbrush food coloring
- a scribe tool
- paper towels
- a bottle with water or rubbing alcohol (to clean the airbrush between colors)
- a small bowl (for dumping the water or alcohol)
