I’m overloaded on cookies, how about you? Two cookie parties in the past week plus all the yummy treats circulating at work has left me in dire need of a Zumba class (or ten).
But hey, ’tis the season.
In the spirit of sweet givings, today Krafty Kath and I hope to inspire you with these DIY packaging ideas for your next cookie or candy gift.
DIY baked goods packaging
Kathy found this cute red tin that works perfect for cookies and brownies. Ribbon and a felt snowflake make it festive.
Small gift bags with washi tape are perfect for party favors.
A ceramic loaf pan lined with candy cane wax paper and loaded up with cookies makes a great hostess gift that has use well beyond the holidays. Plus, leave it to us to find another use for pom poms and bells!
After our big Frango mints debate, I brought Kathy a box back from Chicago so she could compare them to the Seattle version. The Chicago versions come with waxed paper liners, which were perfect for this shallow, scalloped tin tray. Wrap in cellophane and tie a swag of blue-berried juniper to complete the package.
For our final package, we put chocolate, caramel popcorn balls in a cellophane bag and tied it up with ribbon and a sprig of juniper. This is a great option if you need to package in volume.
Tip: If you are local to Seattle and haven’t checked out Swanson’s Nursery, it has a great selection of fresh swags and wreaths. We got a huge swag of juniper for six dollars – enough for a few dozen of these bags.
Small touches can go a long way to make a lasting impression and to let the recipient know you care. How will you wrap your next gift?
P.S. The cookies featured in today’s post come are White Chocolate Butterscotch from With Sprinkles on Top.
