How to decorate food with die cut seaweed

I love to put little personal touches on everything-today a frozen pizza was my palette of choice and my medium was roasted seaweed. My tool was a heart and wing Sizzix die.
My inspiration came from the super cute and idea packed book Deliciously Decorative Cookies: 50 Stylish, Tasty Treats to Make and Decorate.
It features tutorials on how to make rice paper flowers and I thought about trying to decorate food with seaweed. To make the shapes I die cut hearts and winds with my Sizzix die cutter.
I cooked the pizza as directed and placed my die cut seaweed heart and wings right on the melted cheese. They settled right in and looked cute! I was thinking these seaweed embellishments would look cute on a bowl of hummus to bring to a party or on a bowl of macaroni and cheese?

There are also feature spreads that provide a handful of quick and easy cookies to make in moments, with the step-by-step guides making recipes easy to understand.
