This is another project I did a couple years back and didn't know I had a picture of. I made this cookie bouquet for a school teacher friend at the end of the school year. She loved it! In fact, I don't think she ever ate it - she asked me if there was something she could spray on it to make it last longer!
This was only my first or second bouquet. Notice how thick the cookies are! I was afraid that the sticks wouldn't stay in if I made them any thinner. I now make them thinner and if I feel the stick needs to be sturdier, I use royal icing to cement it in place.
I later added ribbon to the front to finish this bouquet off (not shown).
