Scandinavian Christmas Tree Kit
I’m back with another early Christmas gift – my third stencil-cutter-video kit in my new Kitchen Club Collection, designed in partnership with Confection Couture Stencils! I dare say that this kit might just be my favorite so far. It’s super easy to stencil; the stencils look great with a minimum of colors; and the 3-D project is infinitely scalable, allowing you to build it as tall (or as short) as you’d like using a simple pyramid construction technique (see the five-tier tree below).
What’s more, in the companion instructional video, I explain how to make another 3-D project variation, pictured directly below. It’s even easier than my pyramid tree, but just as festive, don’t you think?!
No time for 3-D cookies during the busy holiday season? I get that, which is why this kit allows you to make striking 2-D cookies as well. You can make them with or without framed messages too, thanks to the unique masking system that is characteristic of all of my Dynamic Duos™ stencil designs. In fact, the kit’s companion video kicks off with detailed instructions for using this system to make 2-D cookies of many designs.
I’ve mentioned stencils and a video, but, as always, my Scandinavian Christmas Tree kit contains cookie cutters too! To recap, the entirety of its contents include my two-set Scandinavian Christmas Tree Dynamic Duos™ stencil design, up to three cutters (one in the basic kit bundle; three in the deluxe kit bundle), and the optional instructional video. What’s even better? You can make both 2-D and 3-D projects with either the basic or the deluxe kit! You’ll just have the possibility of more tree sizes if you opt for the deluxe kit.
Again, one of the beauties of my layered stencil sets is their unique masking system, which allows you the ultimate flexibility when creating new designs. As my short style reel below demonstrates, there’s no such thing as a cookie-cutter cookie when you work with my stencils and their associated kits. Just look at the wealth of 2-D and 3-D cookie trees that’s possible with this one kit . . .
While we’re on the subject of flexibility . . . You can buy my kits on occasion, or you can opt into my club to get great savings on my kits and other products on confectioncouturestencils.com, my partner’s site, as long as you continue purchasing kits. Joining my club is super simple as well: just purchase any kit on confectioncouturestencils.com, and your membership begins immediately. For more details about my Kitchen Club and its benefits, skip to the bottom of this post. You can also unbundle the kits further if you only want a subset of the items in them. For instance, the stencils and cutters can be bought separately on my partner’s site, and the instructional video can also be bought under the “VIDEO TUTORIALS” section of this site.
Speaking of the instructional video . . . below is a sneak peek of the full-length (one-hour-plus), professionally shot and edited production. This video is loaded with tips designed to amp up everything from your airbrushing game to your 3-D construction prowess. Plus, it shows how to make many of the cookies featured in the above style reel . . . and it comes with a 31-page (!) handout with additional technique tips, two recipes (including all of my icing consistency adjustments), and inspiration images galore. Again, this video can be purchased either in a kit with stencils and cutters on Confection Couture Stencils’ site or on its own on this site.
Now, as I said earlier, you can buy my kits as often as you want, but if you remain an active purchaser (and thereby club member), you’ll get all of the perks listed in the next section.
