3. Using full-strength medium green icing, disposable decorating bag and tip 2, outline all cookies. On green dough cookies, outline leaf and pipe veins. Allow to set until dry on parchment paper-covered cookie sheet.
4. Thin down colored and white icing; reserve small portion of full-strength white icing.
5. On half of the plain dough cookies, using thinned light green icing, cut decorating bag and tip 2, fill in cookies. Immediately pipe vertical and horizontal lines, varying pressure to create different thicknesses, using thinned colored icings, disposable decorating bags and tip 1. Allow to set until dry on parchment paper-covered cookie sheet.
6. On remaining plain dough cookies, using thinned white icing, disposable decorating bag and tip 2, fill in cookies. Immediately pipe diagonal, crisscross lines, varying pressure to create different thicknesses, using thinned colored icings, disposable decorating bags and tip 1. Allow to set until dry on parchment paper-covered cookie sheet.
7. Roll a ball of red fondant, 1/4" dia. Lightly dust mold with cornstarch, and press fondant into small four-hole button cavity of mold. Using full-strength icing, disposable decorating bag and tip 2, attach button to cookies. Let set until completely dry.

Project Tip: To thin royal icing, add a small amount of water until you reach proper consistency. Icing can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to two weeks. Bring to room temperature for decorating; remix before using.
