Apple Sugar Cookie DIY {Back to School}

by Maria

Oh my goodness. Where did the summer go? I’ve had years where I was dying for back to school, but this year has not been that way.  The weather has been great, and we have had the most amazing adventures. As I think about going back to school, I wanted to create an Apple Sugar Cookie DIY.

What ever you dream up Sweet Ciao Bella the AMAZING cookie creator can make. Look at these adorable apple shaped cookies An absolutely dreamy DIY!


My oldest is going into 4th grade, and I’m not going to lie. Having children can  make you feel old. As they become taller and more articulate, you WANT to praise them for that. Except I am just feeling more tired, and I miss my little bee-boppin, Frozen singing princess.  It isn’t always easy to watch time pass so fast.

I’m a work in progress as a mom. I know!


Is this DIY Easy and Stress-Free?

I always like to post fun, stress-free ideas. That’s my thing.  If you already have the cookie supplies and have a little practice making cookies than this design is EASY!  Making adorable cookies is always a fun way to make someone feel appreciated.

Let’s say you don’t know how already. You don’t have the supplies, and you don’t think you have time.  Once you are up and running, making cookies is so much fun. You can do it with your kids and make people smile.

Still not sold? Buy them from Etsy! Link is below.

Are you excited about back to school?

These teachers put so much into our children’s education. Let’s bribe them, and love them so they know how much we appreciate all that they do.
