Happy Holidays!!

We hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas! We certainly did at the Store and now we're glad to be on our holiday break! We'll be back at work on Tuesday, January 4th and I'll resume my blog posts then as well.

Until then, have a safe a happy new year!

Cookie Packaging!

Hi everyone! I know I've been a bit tardy with my blog posts but the Store's been hoppin' lately, not sure why though *jingle bells, jingle bells* Anyways, I'm here now! With the holiday baking season upon us, here's a quick and cute cookie packaging idea-

We recently starting carrying these glassine / waxed cookie bags at the Store and they've really been a hit, especially for cookies. But since they are a bit plain, we wanted to bump up the cute factor!

So, we turned to Martha. Not literally of course but I love these new punches from Martha Stewart Crafts that this seemed like a great opportunity to try them out (any excuse, right?) The bags punched quite nicely and it does makes the bags look much fancier.

For the little tags, we used some holiday stamps and a tag shaped punch (all from Stampin' Up).

Then we folded over the top of the bag and tied the gingham ribbon around the whole bag. We also used some 1/8"double faced satin ribbon to tie on the tags.

And there you have it - easy, cute and (I'm pretty sure!) much appreciated gift for your friends, neighbours and co-workers!
I'll be doing more cookie wrapping posts so be sure to check back! Thanks!
