I don't want to leave you without a couple of gifts to make for your friends and family. You know they think you're crafty don't you? So with a little help from your favorite Elf, you can make these treats in no time at all.
Bake and decorate Christmas Light sugar cookies, using my method - HERE
And I'll show you a cute way to package them.
I found the photo box at Michael's and thought it would make a great storage box for Christmas lights. Package the lights individually so they don't break. Christmas Lights are very fragile. Do I hear some of you saying, I don't have time to make Christmas Light cookies?
Have no fear, your favorite Elf is here.
How about this Bright Idea?
Let them make their own sugar cookies!!
All you need to do is get them started...
You can buy it all! Who ever said you can't buy happiness? The clear plastic lights were empty plastic Christmas craft ornaments and I filled them with Christmas cookie decorations! I just happened to have a few sprinkles on hand...
And I rolled sugar cookie dough in a log. (My mom used to do this all the time with every kind of cookie dough - we could just slice and bake). After being reminded from Southern Living to wrap it up with the printed recipe, that's exactly what I did.

Print on white adhesive paper and cut.
Plastic Light Bulb Christmas Craft Ornaments
Plastic Light Ornament - Fill the ornament by pouring the decorations on a paper plate. Fold the plate like a taco and pour sprinkles into the ornament. Close the top with a small piece of foil.
(This way the sprinkles will not come out the top)
Roll your cookie dough in the shape of a log.
Covered in plastic wrap.
Then covered with wax paper.

Tie ends with bow.
Be sure to keep dough refrigerated or frozen until giving.
I'll leave it to you to either make or buy the sugar cookie dough. I won't tell.
Light Up The Holidays!
Always Merry & Bright!
