One of the last sets for this year's back-to-school collection is this thin school supplies set.

I've done variations of school supply designs over the years because they are a favorite theme for me to decorate. This time around, I made thin & tall-shaped versions of a few past designs. The complete 4-piece set was made to fit in this BRP long cookie box (12" x 5" x 1.5").

For this tutorial, I'll be decorating the spiral notebook design from the set. I broke down the decorating steps below.

Spiral Notebook Cookie Cutter

This spiral notebook cookie cutter is part of this 4-piece Thin School Supplies Set.

Each of these cookies are 4-inches tall and about 2.3-inches in width. As a collection, they fit perfectly in this BRP long cookie box (12" x 5" x 1.5"). You can purchase these cookie cutters as the 4-piece set, or each one individually.

Template for the Spiral Notebook Cookies

To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template of all of the new Back-to-school cookie cutters, including this notebook design.

You can download all the 2021 Back-to-School cookie templates HERE.

If you have a Kopykake or Pico projector, just print it out (or pull it up on your mobile device) and you are good to go. For those without a projector, follow the suggested steps below by tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.

The Decorating Process

For the colors used for these spiral notebook cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:

Step 1

Begin by filling in the area of the notebook cover. Allow for this icing to dry completely.

For added interest, I decided to airbrush a polka dot pattern on the cover. I used Americolor GEL color in white for the airbrush color. (Check out this post to see how I airbrush white color with great coverage.)

Step 2

After the airbrush color had time to dry, fill in the white detail areas as shown.

Then add the gray spiral ring and the lower cover outline detail.

Lastly, add the black outine details, and a smiling face if you wish.

The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together.

Here's the finished snowman cookies, along with the other designs in this set.

In this collection you can find the spiral notebook, the thin paper airplane, the thin backpack, and the pencil cup.

For gift packaging options, I love this BRP long cookie box (12" x 5" x 1.5"). All four cookies fit perfectly with wiggle room to seal them in heat-sealed cello bags.

Well, that rounds up the back-to-school collection this year. I'm really looking forward to what's just down the pike with the fall season. It's my favorite time of year and I can't wait to share what I have planned next.
