Utinni! Jawa Vegan Cookie Cupcakes!

Bonnie Burton | December 12, 2011

I love crafty fan JustJenn Designs and her tasty tributes to Star Wars! Using the new Williams-Sonoma Droids and Aliens Cookie Cutters, JustJenn Designs made these adorkable and delicious Jawa Vegan Cookie Cupcakes!

JustJenn writes:

The new Droids and Aliens cutters came out and I was drawn to the Jawas. I was always fascinated with how the hoods covered them entirely and how deeply inset their faces seemed to be – what exactly was behind those beady yellow eyes? I knew I wanted to capture that same idea when using the cookie cutters.

I was going to a Merry Sithmas party believe it or not, and one of the guests had a lot of food allergies. She is always left out when it came to desserts and seeing as how she LOVES Star Wars as much as I do, I decided to come up with a totally Vegan cookie and cupcake combo.

New Star Wars Snowflakes Craft!

Bonnie Burton | December 11, 2011

Remember that awesome dad who Photoshopped Ewoks into his family vacation photos so his kids could believe Ewoks were real? And then gave his daughter an adorkable Star Wars Disney Princesses birthday cake?

Well, now awesome dad, Anthony Herrera is back and he’s crafted some rather cool Star Wars Paper Snowflakes of Admiral Ackbar, Yoda, Ahsoka Tano and more!


Anthony writes:

When someone shared with me the Stars Wars snowflakes featured on Matters of Grey we were excited to make them. They turned out great, but we wanted to create more. The design seemed easy enough, so I got to work. There are so many rich characters in the Star Wars universe, the possibilities seem endless. I created a few designs based off of characters that I liked or thought would have a cool look as a snowflake. I recommend getting a very sharp X-acto knife for the inner details.
