Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop and My Halloween Cookies

Hi Everyone and welcome to another Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop!

If you are here from the Really Reasonable Ribbons Ramblings blog, you are in the right place.
If you just happened on to my blog, you will want to go back one step to start at the beginning.

Regular followers of my blog,  know that I have started sharing my baked goodies on here as of late too. Why not combine my love of all things sweet and my love of pretty ribbons?

The September Ribbon Club Kit has all of the fun colors that we normally associate with Halloween, (even though, they can be used as every day ribbons as well).
I know it's early, but it put me in the mood for some Halloween cookies. 
We will have to eat these and I will make more for Halloween. 
I used my "Spiced Orange Sugar Cookie" recipe, so they are extra tasty! :)
These would be great for you to make for your special little ghouls and goblins too!

Click on photo for a closer look.

I simply made sugar cookies, using some of Wilton's Halloween Cookie Cutters, frosted them with Royal Frosting, let them dry, then made these fun little gift packages.
The background cardstock is Bazzill Two Scoops in Prickly Pear, Pumpkin Pie, and Black Cow, all from Discount Card Stock. The designer paper is from Graphic 45's "Happy Hauntings" stack.
The pretty bows make the packaging complete! :)

Here is a peek at all of the ribbons in this month's set as well as the frosting colors I mixed to match it. 

Not a member of the ribbon club yet? What are you waiting for? Who wouldn't like to get a surprise package of beautiful ribbons every month? CLICK HERE for details.
