Simply cut out and decorate cookies to match your theme. Make sure the cookie that will be upright is completely dry before attempting to make it stand up on another cookie. I used 2 coffee mugs to keep the cookie upright and stabilize both cookies for several hours. I found that even if a few of the 3-D cookies are put in with the rest of the goodie display, it visually has a big impact. Thought I would share my "trick" I found helpful. Any "tricks" you have when making sugar cookies? I would love to hear what you do!
