Packaging Baked Goods

After I made these cookies I decided they would be the perfect little gifts to bring to holiday parties.  I had to first think of a creative way to package them that didn't involve the dreaded cellophane and curly ribbon. I decided on a really easy method that I think looks great. Here's what I used and how I did it: 
  • brown paper bags
  • scissors 
  • thin string
  • ribbon
  • tape
  • sparkly card-stock
  • hole-punch 
  • baked goods to go inside
  1. By cutting some card stock I made homemade gift tags. I wrote my notes on the back, hole-punched them, and put them off to the side.
  2. Take the brown paper bag and cut off a couple inches from the top opening depending on how big you want the package to be.
  3. Fold over top portion of the bag to act as a flap (roughly 2 inches).
  4. Place baked goods inside the bag.
  5. Use a bit of tape to seal the underside of the flap to the bag.
  6. Using decorative ribbons, tie a bow around the filled bag.
  7. Using thinner string go over the previously tied bow and attach tag forming another bow.
So, so simple! And how cute would these be as place settings too! I suggest to make sure the cookies are cold and hard so no icing smudges. And it's best to package the day of since the oils from the butter may go through the bags! Enjoy!
