Pizzelle Recipe

I have had some requests for the recipe I use to make pizzelles ( as seen in my Lemondade stand photos).. Here is the recipe... I typically do a vanilla or almond Pizzelle, rather than an anise pizzelle...
If you try them.. let me know how they turn out for you! Enjoy!

Jack's Lemonade Stand

My son Jack has been wanting to have a lemonade stand for the past few weeks now... so I designed a fun printables collection for him .... and he finally got to have his lemonade stand set up yesterday ( he wants to save up money to go to Chicago for "Godzilla Fest")...of course you want to do something like this on a budget.. so I was very careful on the money I spent to put this together...and in the end, I created a pretty fun lemonade stand on a small budget! I used dishes I already had in my kitchen and a picture frame from my living room for the table print...I bought the yellow gingham fabric for $4.00 at JoAnne Fabrics and I bought the plain white school box at my local craft store for $1.00 (which I decorated with my printable stickers) and I bought almost everything else at the Dollar store (I love the dollar store)... the treat baskets, the polka dot tray, napkins, straws, cups, clothes pins and the styrafoam for the lollipop stand were all bought at the dollar store. You can check out the pictures below and the Lemonade Stand Printables Collection is now available in my etsy shop....My son had so much fun doing it and also made some spending money for his trip!

DIY Lemonade Stand Printables Collection includes files of the following:

*8x10 Table print
*price stickers (25 cents, 50 cents, 75 cents) will need a 1" round paper punch
*vertical "sweets" stickers
*2.5" round stickers ( as shown on cups) will need a 2.5" round paper punch
*food tags/ labels
*lemon garland...need a 2.5" paper punch... small hole punch.. and ribbon or twine to string them on!
*Iron- on T shirt / Apron
*money box labels
*5" lemon circles to make lollipop stand
*Banner- Lemonade Stand




Included in the collection is an iron-on design.. so cute to add on a t-shirt or apron... the design is already flipped.. you just have to print it out on "t-shirt transfer paper"

for the lemon lollipop stand.. I purchased the 5" round styrafoam from the dollar store ( you actually get 2 of them in a pck for 1 dollar) you can cut out the printable lemon design from my collection.... punch small holes in the lemon cutout using a 1/8" hole punch....they are the perfect size for small lollipops or dum dums.... just glue the cutout on the styrafoam and trim the edge with ribbon
(I used the glitter ribbon again)



I attached the food tags to the baskets using clothes pins from the dollar store.. I just used 5/8" glitter ribbon and glued it to the clothes pin.. sooo easy and they come out really cute!
