Last Valentine’s Day, I made chocolate dipped spoons for Suraya’s class Valentine’s.
This year, I was in the cookie decorating mood.
So I made these little birdies.
I thought it would be cute to package them in small glassine bags tied off with twine.
And to hand stamp the bags with the phrase “love is in the air”.
Simple and cute packaging. Sometimes that’s all you need!
Oh, also, each bag was sealed off in the back with paper tape.
I’m loving them… I hope Suraya’s classmates will too! I’d love to hear what you think… so type away!
If you do decide to make your cookies in advance like I did, you will want to freeze your cookies to preserve their freshness. You can freeze the baked undecorated cookies, and then decorate them a couple of days prior to the day needed, or you can decorate and then freeze them. When freezing cookies, whether decorated or not, I place mine in an airtight freezer safe container and place parchment paper in between each layer of cookies. Cookies don’t need much thawing time, and when they are thawed they taste as fresh as the day you baked them!
In the next post, I’ll be sharing more cookies and another packaging idea. This time for the teachers!
