* Depending on your chest and waist size, you may need longer pieces.

Instructions (For back and front cookie)::

1) Using a large scissors cut a 25“ circle from each of the two pieces of foam.
Tip for making the circle: Tie the two ends together of a 26” piece of string. Push a thin 1 1/2” nail into the center of the foam. Loop the string over the nail and than around the black marker. Pull the loop taunt and than mark the circle onto the foam. See illustration A. Also a large aluminum garbage can lid might work.

2) Lay the foam circles onto the newspaper and lightly spray the top and sides of the foam circles with the brown paint. Spray several light coats of brown paint onto foam. After it dries, spray backsides. Allow paint to dry completely.

3) Cut from the masking tape 144 pieces of tape each measuring 2 1/2” long.

4) Stick the masking tape along the edge of the two foam circles. Space the masking tape about 1/2” apart as shown in Illustration B.

5) Print out templates onto index weight paper to your printer.
OR print out templates to your printer. With carbon paper or graphite paper sandwiched between the template and the poster board, trace the designs with a pencil onto the poster board.

Cut masking tape pieces to the size that is shown on Template 2 and positon on foam as shown in illustration C.

Placement Of Pieces

9) Using the black spray paint, lightly spray the design onto the foam circle (top and sides). Spray several light coats. Allow paint to dry. Remove paper pieces, pennies and tape.

10) Reuse paper template pieces from 1st foam circle onto 2nd foam circle. Following layout in illustraion C, add template pieces, second set of masking tape piecesand pennies onto second foam circle. Spray foam circle with black paint. Allow paint to dry. Remove paper pieces, pennies and tape.

11) Using needle and thread, attach white twill tape to back of foam pieces. Than attach black twill tape to back of foam pieces. See illustration D. Note: you can also use safety pins to attach twill tape.

Sewing On Ties

12) To complete the costume: For the white filling for the cookie, you may want to wear a white shirt, white pants and white socks/pantyhose or a white leotard.
