| Mr. Postman Cookie Gift |

What you will need...
Mr. Postman Printable (edible paper)
Sugar Cookies
Frosting Glaze
Sharp Knife
Pizza Cutter
Scissors (optional)

I started off by making some stamps in photoshop. I found my image on google, cropped it down to make it the shape of a stamp, added a stamp border (in different colors) and added some text and brushes. I placed 9 per page. Just copy the photo below to make yours!
Go to your local bakery and ask them to transfer your image to edible paper. YUM!
I used a pizza cutter to cut mine out. Then I used scissors to trim them up a bit better.
Make your sugar cookies. I used pre-made cookie dough. We just sliced it and cooked. Very quick. Thats what also makes this a nice last minute gift.
Grab that glaze and pour over your cooled cookies. Add your stamps to the top of the glaze.
Now you can leave them just like this...round is cute!
But I decided to cut (with my sharp knife) around my lil edible printable. Don't they look like cute little stamps! I know our Postman will love these!
These are going to make a great gift. I plan on working on more images like this for other workers too! Doctors, Grocers, Construction (my hubby) and more! Who wouldn't love a cookie that represents their profession!
