Back To School Antiqued Cookies

21 Sep

Anyone that knows me knows that my husband is a teacher. Not only is he a teacher, he’s an elementary teacher. Not only is he an elementary teacher, but he’s a special education elementary teacher. Someone needs to go ahead and knight this guy, right? He’s amazing. I have so much respect for all teachers (especially public school teachers) who put their heart and soul into their students. My husband is one of those teachers, and I’m so proud of him. In that spirit, I decided recently that I needed to make him some special “back to school/thank you for being you” cookies to take to work to share with his colleagues.

I’ve been loving everything antiqued and distressed lately, and I wanted to make these cookies in that fashion. So once I got them iced, I went back with some painting techniques and made them distressed. I really enjoyed how they turned out, especially the chalkboards!

I’ve got a couple of tutorials lined up that I’ll be posting soon that shows you how I did the antiquing as well as how I did the chalkboards, and the globes. I hope to have those up soon.

These were so much fun to make, and I’m told that the only complaint was that there weren’t more of them to go around!
