CHRISTMAS COOKIES


COOKIE WRAPPING
Last year, I remember running around trying to buy cookie tins, from Re-use centers to Dollar Stores.  I still spent about $30.00 on wrapping my cookies.  This year I have some new stamps and found an INEXPENSIVE way to wrap my cookies! 

Just take some kraft paper (a roll that you can pick up at a post office or big box store).  Cut out a piece, stamp 100% Certified Homemade as many times as you want, and then stamp COOKIES.  It is KEY to wrap your cookies either in plastic wrap or a zip loc bag so that the oils from the cookies don't stain the wrapping.  My first attempt, I used waxed paper, and the oils came through.  Wrap with wool or twine and give them away!
