At the end of last year, the coordinator for the Secret Keeper Girl events contacted me about doing a special collection of cookies they could use as gifts, etc. Since I had already purchased all four books for my niece’s birthday, I was familiar with the program and super psyched to give their logo a try.
Have you heard of Secret Keeper Girl? It’s an awesome set of books and a program targeted to 8-12 year-olds, a.k.a. tweens. There is a blog, a set of books, a touring group that is sweeping the nation, and a ton of cool resources on www.secretkeepergirl.com. This is a blurb from their website:
“What is a Secret Keeper Girl? Well, she is lots of things! A Secret Keeper Girl values modesty, she surrounds herself with wise friends and she embraces Godly beauty. But, the most important thing for you to know is that a Secret Keeper Girl is a masterpiece created by God.”
Not only are these books super cool, but the authors make ‘mom’ resources available too. Wondering how to talk to your daughter about modesty, healthy body image, friends, and so on…these books offer lots of opportunities to open up the communication lines.
This may be one of my favorite cookie sets to make. Take a look.
Here is an overview of the cookie set. It was inspired by the artwork on their site. Daisies and Butterflies and all things girlie!
And here is a solo photo of the logo cookie I did. It’s pretty close to the actual logo. I tried to mimic the font and I included the flower that dots the ‘i’ in ‘Girl’. I even stacked a mini daisy cookie to add a little dimension to the rectangular shape. …
The pink daisy cookie is similar to the daisy in the Flour Box logo. I use tip #14 to create that fun detail on the petals. Icing lovers really like this cookie…
The purple butterfly cookie. I should do a tutorial on this cookie. The ‘double flood’ technique used to create the design on the wings is actually easy to do. Maybe I’ll save that for a post for another day.
If you get a minute check out www.secretkeepergirl.com. You don’t have to be a mom to spoil a special little girl…these books are great coming from a friend, aunt, or nana!
Thanks for taking a look at the cookies! Still working on the St. Patrick’s Day collection. I’m getting closer to my final product. I’m also working on a few custom orders. Of course, I’ll share the pictures with you right away!
Have a sweet day,
