A few weeks ago I was asked to do a cookie bouquet for Docutah – a wonderful international documentary film festival here in Southern Utah. I was excited about being asked and even more excited about figuring out how to get their logo on the cookies. Here is the logo:
I knew I couldn’t freehand this logo, so I decided to try a stencil, which meant I would have to make one. How does one go about making a stencil? Well, I can now answer that question. I found this nifty little stencil making tool:
This little gadget heats up and melts/cuts the stencil. Once I figured out how to operate the thing it really was really quite easy to use. The result:
Because it was for a film festival, I decided to make a strip of film with the logo in the center and a movie camera.
I had my design – I had my stencil – sugar cookies were baked – now time to put it all into action and hope for the best……
The end result:
