Stamped Cookie Boxes!

The holidays are a great time to give gifts of baking - who wouldn't appreciate a beautiful box of home baked yummies. right? Here's an easy way to spruce up your cookie boxes so they're ready for filling and giving!

For our samples, we used our 4" x 4" x 4" folding gift boxes in natural kraft and red, baker's twine in assorted colours to co-ordinate with our boxes (boxes and twine are available at Essential Packaging), snowflake stamps and ink pad (we used Stampin' Up products but you can use any brand of stamps and ink).

For something a little different, we chose to stamp the inside of the gift box lid. We also lined the gift box with parchment paper to help prevent stains from the butter in the cookies. We then placed our delicious homemade cookies (or they can be store bought, we won't judge!) into the gift box.

For a simple finish to our cookie box, we wrapped the baker's twine around the the box a few times and added a small gift tag to the front.

Here's the natural kraft cookie box - for this one, we chose to stamp the outside as well as the inside lid. Once again, we wrapped the baker's twine around the cookie box and added the gift tag.

This is a really easy way to stylishly present your holiday gifts of baking! These would make great gifts for friends, neighbors, teachers and coaches.

Thanks and we hope to see you again soon!
