Introducing Foodie Fun! {Clear and Simple Stamps}

Oh boy, am I excited for today's post!  The time has finally come to kick off Clear and Simple Stamps Collection 7 release!  This release is jam packed with  SO MANY awesome new products!  I don't think I can possibly pick a favorite!
Today, the team is showcasing a new series called Foodie Fun, and it sure is FUN!
For my project, I chose to work with a super awesome new favor die, Party Favor 13 - a mini take out box.  It can be embellished with ribbon of any color for a custom look every time. I decided I wanted to make hamburger cookies to put in my takeout box.  They are super easy, and quick to make.  You will need the following:
-Nilla Wafer Cookies
-Keebler Grasshopper Cookies
-Shredded Coconut
-Green food coloring
-Tube icing in white, red and yellow (non-gel icing works best)
I set my Nilla Wafers out assembly line style, then squirted a dab of white icing on the flat side of each "bun". (Good luck trying to find perfect cookies in the box... it looks like a little mouse was nibbling on my hamburger buns!).  You need the white icing to keep all of the other pieces stuck together.  Then you stack on your burger patty (the Grasshopper cookies), followed by zipzags of red and yellow icing to add your ketchup and mustard.  After adding a few drops of green food coloring to your coconut shred, sprinkle it on top of the red and yellow icing and top it with another white iced Nilla Wafer.  After let them set a bit, they stay stuck together. Easy and CUTE!!
Two of these little cookies fit perfectly in the Party Favor 13 box.

To decorate my box, I used the raindrop image from the Flower Garden set to mimic poppy seeds.  I colored and cut out a bunch of burgers from the Foodie Fun stamp set, and then, on a Favor Flag diecut, added the word "Cookies" from the Foodie Fun Sentiments stamp set.
My coordinating mini card uses the same stamp sets and a bit of fun gingham patterned paper.

I hope you enjoyed my post today!  I will be back again tomorrow sharing another fun project.  In the meantime, be sure to hop along to check out some more Foodie Fun inspiration:
