I really like this simple way of decorating sugar cookies. You can create these lovely lace patterns using a doily, either an actual lace or paper one.
Lay the doily over the cookie, then using a sieve, dust the surface allowing the icing sugar to accumulate in the holes. Carefully lift up the doily to reveal the pattern beneath.
The only downside of this type of decoration is that the result is rather delicate, so you can't pile one cookie on top of another without marring the pattern.
