KopyKake, ShmopyKake!

And now, for the rest of the story.  Back to talking about KopyKake projectors.  If you are making tons of cookies, get one NOW, if not, take notes.  
It’s actually very easy make perfect cookies with a minimal investment.
I made both of the following cookie collections without the aid of a projector.
To make perfect cookies like these, all you need are your computer, a printer, and a few supplies that are easily found at most craft supply stores or good ol’ Walmart.

AND?
Oh yes, and don’t forget the Wilton Food Color Markers!?
As some of you know, I recently traveled to New Orleans to visit my friend Gina.  While I was there, I had the privilege of recording my first video tutorial with a professional cinematographer.
The funny thing is, I didn’t even know I’d struck gold until after I arrived.  When I planned the trip I knew I was going to make cookies, and that her hubby, who recorded weddings was going to help me film a tutorial that I had planned on posting.
What I didn’t know was that I was getting more than just a camera man. 
When she said wedding videos, I imagined the guy who records two hours worth of wedding video that no one ever watches again. {No offense, Kevin!} 
How very WRONG I WAS!!!  Kevin is an ARTIST!  He does not record wedding videos, HE MAKES MOVIES.
The best way I can explain it, is that he takes the best moments from a wedding and puts them together to make a short but impactful wedding highlight movie that people actually WANT to watch!  I was beyond impressed, and highly recommend taking the time to check out his work at Terrington Films.  My favorite so far is When Rachel Married Joshua *WATCH IT*

It was an awesome experience, and  I hope to have the opportunity to work with him again VERY soon!

So, enjoy this video tutorial of how to make KopyKake quality cookies without a KopyKake, courtesy of Terrington Films.  
*Sorry, Stanley!* 
Obviously, this goes way beyond peace signs.  With a little patience {and maybe a little stencil paper instead of printer paper}you can make just about any stencil you put your mind to.?
Hope this helps those of you torn over whether or not to purchase a KopyKake.
To keep from being biased, I have included another resource for  those of you who absolutely without a doubt want or need one. Marian at Sweetopia has the BEST KopyKake tutorial on the net.
I’d like to wrap this up with a list of pros and cons of KK Projectors. I can’t really lean in one direction or the other…
And since I have been a little behind, from here on out, I am going to get with the program and move onto Valentine’s day projects.  Lots of fun stuff coming up!
Good luck, and happy decorating!

    Very good content and style of writing. I believe I’ll come back on this web site later on and find out precisely what else you really have available! ;-) I’m intending to find out if my husband and I
    might find all things on the topic of fitness watches polar!
