Cookie Swap Idea

Today we're gonna share a Cookie/Candy Swap that's taking place here at The Scrapbook Shoppe.
This idea came from this years edition of "Holidays" from Scrapbook Trends Magazine.

Instead of just a traditional cookie swap, we're taking it a step further & including the recipes(which are stored in a cookie tin) along with all of the yummy treats!
Here's our version:
We've picked up 7"x11" cookie tins & drilled 2 holes at the top. Our recipes are done scrapbook-style on both sides of a 5x9 piece of chipboard and attached with 2-1/2" book rings.

We'll be decorating our covers on Swap Day (along with eating TONS of delicious cookies & candies!) (There goes the diet!!!!)
We're also taking a photo of each participant with our Santa, which we'll print out & have everyone autograph for each tin. That way, we can look back to see everybody in our group.

We've got 10 ladies participating, giving us 2 recipes each! Here are a couple of the recipe cards that will be in our tins . . . We can't wait to see everyone else's!

There's still time to get your special group of friends together for a fun swap like this!
It would be a great opportunity for a Girl Scout Troop to earn their Cooking/Baking Badge or for the Church Ladies Group for their Holiday Get-Together!
