My son begged to get a dog for years and I kept putting it off. I had heard stories of how tough it could be to train a puppy and with two little boys at home, I didn't know if I had the time or energy to welcome a new pet into the family. Finally, when my oldest was eight, I gave in and let him bring home a 10-week-old Boston Terrier. About two minutes after he was home, I fell head over heels in love for this little guy we named Moses. That was nearly five years ago and I still say getting Moses was the best decision our family ever made. He has been THE BEST dog and is truly a member of our family. I mean, really. Look at this sweet face! How could you not love him?
So when I saw this exclusive dog kit from Studio Calico
, I knew I had to have it!
My kit just arrived and I decided it was a great time to whip up some treats for our little guy. I followed the recipe for Peanut Butter Dog Treats
and cut out the "cookies" with the bone and puppy cookie cutters.
The recipe was really easy to follow and my dog completely approved. He's still staring at me with those puppy eyes, trying to see if I'll give him a few more. I wanted to store the extra treats in something cute that could sit out on the counter and decided to dress up a canning jar with my new supplies from the dog kit.
I used a couple of the stamps from the set to dress up a shipping tag and heat embossed the images to give them a really bold look. The washi tape from the kit made it really easy to add a decorative wrap around the belly of the jar.
If you follow the recipe linked above, you might want to remove smaller cookies about 5-10 minutes early. By the way, I love how the dog cookie looks just like a Boston Terrier! You can find more of my work on Stamped in His Image
