Practice Buttoning with Felt Oreo Cookies

Print Friendly

I was inspired by making the buttoning pizza to make more food that requires buttoning. I see a whole line of fun button food in my future. Here is an oreo cookie that I made. It is very similar to the button snake, but looks like an oreo.

One difference from the button snake is that the ribbon is much shorter, so it can be more challenging to get the button in the holes. The ribbon is sewn onto the bottom chocolate colored piece of felt.
