Mom's V-day Cookie Bouquet!

One last fun thing I'd like to share with you if you want to give a fun/tasty gift for Valentine's Day, or you want an edible arrangement in the center of your table :)

I grew up with my Mom making these cookie/gumdrop bouquets around Valentine's Day.
I made some yesterday for my Young Women cause it was birthday sunday (a leader brings a treat & we sing happy birthday to all of the girls that celebrate their birthdays that month).

The girls LOVED them :)

SUPPLIES:
- Keebler Fudge Stripes shortbread cookies -
- skewers/kabob sticks -
- any sort of large gumdrop/jelly candy -
(I chose cinnamon hearts)
It's as easy as 1-2-3 :)
Just be careful when pressing the top gumdrop down on the cookie...as you can see they break easy. I broke about 5 cookies on my way to make 30-ish flowers...
Ta-da!!
Thanks for the wonderful idea mom! I love traditions!
And mason jar vases :)
