Cookie Photography - My new idea - Page 2

post #16 of 38
Thanks for the post. I scrapbook also. I can't wait for camp to be over to get back to my life of baking. I have more paper than I know what to do with.

I have finally gotten around to learning how to shrink photos. I will be posting soon. I learned how to shrink my avatar.

I am trying to get away today to go cookie/cake shopping with out my crew today.



Have a great summer!!

I love the flip-flops in the grass!

I was using scrapbook paper as my background and found it to be competing with my cookies. I also didn't always have the right paper, so now I'm just using a black background (a lot of times it's a cookie sheet! Ha!). I might have to look into this again. They are so cute!

Wow!! Wonderful and creative idea!
What do you think about laminating these sheets after fitting to serving plates.

Example...I am making 4th of July cookies for this weekend, I was keeping it simple with stars of red white and blue since I don't have alot of time. My serving tray is just white, if I laminated a scrapbooking sheet (haven't looked yet, just feeding off the creativity) and used it to lay my cookies on for serving purposes, would that look ok?

I have a laminator already because I do computer crafts.

As I said, just feeding off Kim_in_CajunCountry's great creativity!

P.S. The flip flop grass one is so awesome!

That's a great idea! You could take any flat bottomed tray, cut paper to fit and laminate and Voila! Presto chango! A tray for all seasons!

I had thought of laminating my pages with clear Contac Paper but there were just too many. But a few seasonal tray inserts wouldn't be a big deal.

I love it! I use scrapbooking paper all the time to make the labels for the top of the bags that I put my cookies in.

Also, I am an avid quilter. I use my quilting rulers and rotary cutters all the time for my cakes and cookies. They are so handy. Actually, I have two sets, one for cakes/cookies, and one for quilting.

You would be amazed with all the quilting stuff you can use for cakes/cookies.

Thanks for the idea.

I have a small quilting ruler that I use for cutting fondant. Love it!

You are such an artist! I love the cookies and I love the idea you have for the background. I just hope that I will be as good as you are. (as I stare longingly at your photos)

Brilliant! Now get ready for a laugh...I have been doing the same thing of putting my cookies on scrapbook paper to photograph them, but hadn't thought of the acetate idea. Instead I spend entirely too much time cutting out wax paper in the exact shape of the cookie to protect the paper underneath from butter staining so I could move it around as needed. As you can guess, very time intensive! Thanks for passing on your great idea!

Aren't you just the clever one? If you have a Xyron machine, you could run the papers through and laminate it on both sides. It would have to be cut down some to fit the machine. Great idea for pictures.
