Uli's Birthday

I decided to try out my new cookie press for my brother in law's birthday. I love the personalization and it's nice being able to use one of my Mom's old recipes for a touch of familiarity.

The biggest hassle is cutting each and every one of those little letters and characters out, so that they can fit into the press. After that there's the task of washing and storing them, since they are easy to lose, but the results are totally worth it.

The blind debossing reminds me of stationery - which I love. I think they are a fun little way to make a big impact and I'm looking forward to making unique Thank You's and other fun surprises.

I'm glad you all thought they were as cool as I did!

Caitlin... They are made in Germany by a magazine company, oddly enough. I got mine at a shop here in town called Kustermann and I also saw them online at amazon.de. I'll have to see if I can find more to send your way.
