Steps for making I’m a Big Sister Cookies
For this set, we decided to honor both the newborn and the big sister. Selecting a soft color palette that would work for both was the key. We decided on a white, soft turquoise, pale pink, and a deeper strawberry pink for contrast. The footie pajamas is one of our favorite baby-themed cookie cutters. Tying in the colors of this cookie with the t-shirts for the “grown-up” big sister cookies was one way to make the set cohesive. To complete the collection, add some monograms and hello baby cookies on a simple circle.
