Packaging for Valentine Cookies


When I was first trying to develop my domestic "skills" as a newlywed (almost 12 years ago!), I turnded to Martha Stewart for inspiration. She continues to inpire me with her ideas. Most of the time I just absorb the ideas and hope I get the chance to try some of them. Well, as I was searching her website I found this terrific idea to package cookies in paper CD pouches. Brilliant! Hers were round oatmeal raisin cookies, but I figured it could work for Valentines as well. I think mine turned out just as good as Ms. Stewarts!

The cookies look yummy, and the packaging is so attractive. What did you use to seal the CD cases with?

You are amazing!

Again! Magazine worthy!!!! :-)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea! These are so deliciously darling!
How did you do that?

I used a "label" to seal them with. I printed them out and used a glue stick to attach the label which is folded over the top flap on the envelope. It's so easy, but looks so cute.

It is hard to believe that it is "just" paper. It looks like ribbon or some other fabric. Just beautiful!! Whoever is getting these gifts is very lucky!!!

Sue,

I'd mail one to you, but it might get old by the time you got it. What do you think?

Sue Albert said...

Wow! I'm afraid it would get stale, but thanks for the offer!
