Cookie Box Gifts

This week we're doing A LOT of last minute errands, cleaning and baking in preparation for family coming in town to celebrate Christmas with us..... as hectic as it seems right now, I LOVE this time of year!  Today, we passed out a few boxes of cookies to our neighbors to say Merry Christmas!

To get the boxes ready, we baked, frosted and of course ate a few cookies.  Then to package the boxes, I first cut parchment paper in tiny squares using pinking shears to separate the different types of cookies in the box....

I added the first layer... parchment paper cut to size (4" x 4")....

Then added shortbread cookies....

On top of the peanut butter balls I added another sheet of parchment paper, a few more cookies, then closed the box, added a tag (cut using a square scallop punch) and red and white baker's twine to hold it all together.

The baker's twine was wrapped around the box a few times, then tied in a bow.

The cookie boxes were delivered to a few friends on the street..... and now I think it's time to eat a peanut butter ball, then clean the kitchen!  Happy Christmas..... only four days until the big day!

  1. It looks like you did a great job. The cookies look so yummy and the tags are so pretty. I would have loved to have gotten something like this so I'm sure your neighbors loved it.

    1. Erin - I bought the boxes from Box & Wrap: www.boxandwrap.com/cupcake-boxes-color.html

      They have several sizes to choose from (I used the 4x4x4- it's the size for a standard cupcake). Hope that helps :)

  4. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
