  • 1
    Unroll the Fruit by the Foot®. I chose "Tie-dye" (red with blue) and "Color by the foot" (orange and green).
  • 2
    Place 3 green and orange strips on a piece of wax paper, and over them place 3 red and blue strips, making sure they overlap a little to give you a lined paper effect.
  • 3
    Cover with another piece of wax paper and then place one of the cookies over the paper; with the marker, trace around the cookie and draw a beard.
  • 4
    Use a pair of scissors to cut the wax paper along the border.
  • 5
    Place the wax paper beard cutout onto the Fruit by the Foot® strips and use it as a guide to cut out the beard.
  • 6
    Repeat step 3-5 two more times, making two more beards.
  • 7
    Use the pre-marked area of the strips to make the crown (see orange and yellow crowns); always use two strips, one on top of the other.
  • 8
    Cut the other crowns in the same way as the beards. The red balls on the yellow crown can be made by balling up bits of the Fruit by the Foot® with your fingers.
  • 9
    Use the white frosting to paste your decorations on the cookies.
