Pretty Gift Packages from Egg Cartons

I just love Pinterest, you can find some really neat ideas. Like this one from Better Homes and Garden



It is gift wrapping your cookies in an egg carton with cellophane or decorative plastic cookie bags.
(that's my 2 cents worth)

So what you need is paper egg cartons, not those styrofoam ones, also I used mini baking cups, cookie bags that I found at the dollar store, for what else, a dollar and some Christmas trim to the tie the ends. But you can use ribbon.



What I did is cut my egg carton into 3 parts, have 4 spaces for cookies but you can cut one in half for 6 cookies. Your choice. I lined mine with baking cups.


    
Pop the cookies in  and now they are ready to wrap. If you have small  delicate cookies like these, the cartons are a great way to protect the cookies from becoming broken.




Soooo    Pretty

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
