Christmas Card Cookies

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever thought about giving or mailing a decorated Christmas Cookie in lieu of a Christmas Card. It just sounds like such a cute idea for extra special people in our lives.

I've done this before although not for Christmas. Whenever someone in the family is pregnant, or getting married, or graduating (something along those lines) I'll send 3 cookies, 2 decorated in the theme, and one with a message on it like "Congrats!" or "Best of Luck!". I'm sure your family would love it because it's baked with love! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh my gosh Flowerpot..that sounds like an excellent idea! I love it. I have only done one set of cookies and they came out okay (I guess) but now I have an incentive to practice to perfect them! Wonderful idea! Thanks for sharing

Nalyjuan--Oh your welcome...I'm just new at cookie decorating thanks to CC. I've been decorating cakes for years, but never thought about cookies--now I'm hooked. It's so much fun to be creative!

What a great idea! And no trees have to die to make the paper to make the cards that everyone throws out after the holidays!!! icon_wink.gif

Bubble wrap envelopes. Just make sure they will fit snug, but not too tight. No idea where to get cutters though.

My husband and I were planning his 50th birthday party and decided to send a cookie (in his likeness) along with the invitation. He was doing all the cooking so the cookie was a chef. Everyone who received a cookie invitation was so surprised. They loved the idea. Each cookie was bubblewrapped and then put in a mailing box typically used for sending VHS tapes. Every cookie arrived perfectly.

I am thinking of baking some cookies (not sure what design yet) for Christmas, taking a picture, and making our own Christmas cards. Kind of like the type of cards people send with pictures of their families. At least this way you don't have the expense of the boxes.
