what about something like this?? Would give a nice presentation, it's something they can keep and repurpose, and it doesn't cost THAT much to you for your bottom line! Not sure they're "elegant" enough for YOUR cookies though!

KHalstead - great idea....she could even re-use for a collection of mini's.

I do like the clear box idea as well.

Buttttt, if you are at all concerned about price...would consider making an insert for your cello bag? For example...there are many sites that give a formula on how to cut and score a piece of cardstock. You make 4 snips, pre-fold a bit...then a dab of hot glue or I think some use two way tap to secure the sides up. Poof...you have the bottom part of a box & you can custom size it to your cookie. Know what I mean? Sort of like the inside of a "slide" style box. Or, the bottom of a stationary box with out the acrylic top.

They make beautiful cardstock in metallic silver and gold. Of course, white is available. If it's a masq. mask you could use what ever metallic finish you're using on the cookie & match the bow. It might be the compromise between price and looks.

If you're super busy you may not dig this option though. It doesn't take all day...but once you figure out the measurements, it's a snap.

KHalstead, pretty box you found!

Ev Marie, that was just what I was about to suggest. The paper topper for the cello bag, right? A pretty piece of nice paper, scalloped; you can make holes with a paper puncher and thread the ribbon through it, depending on the occasion.

There's someone who's making these pretty, whimsical boxes for cupcakes with a clear top, too.

THE PAPER TOPPER (for single cookies)

imaginethatnj - I forgot about the paper topper idea...that's a good one. Threading the ribbon through too will give the cookie just a bit of sass. Something just a little more special because it's a high end cookie.

I was really thinking about a box. Just the bottom really. They have these templates online that help. You just google, make your own favor box. Or something similar. Here's a link I used for my favor boxes I have on my site.... (i hope it works)

It's just the bottom. So, you can place cookie in custom cardstock box, then slide into cello bag. There are some serious scrapbooking projects for fancy boxes....but she'd have to charge an extra $5!! for all the time put in the box.

Wow, this isn't even my post & I want to say thanks for those web sites. I'm crazy about those scalloped boxes for Jules. I'm sitting here wondering if I could make them & if the time is worth the effort.

EvMarie, I think I understand what you are saying. Kinda a compromise between the bag & the box. You use the bottom of the box as the base/holder for the cookie & still get the clear see though of the bag with the decoration of a bow or such.

A pretty box is always worth the effort. I go more for this kind of handmade box than for a plastic clear box. Packaging using pretty colors and papers adds so much more...

I would leave it as is stated on your site...all cookies come packaged in a clear cello bag with coordinating ribbon...

Nothing more is required. The cost for the cookie is WITH THE COOKIE not the packaging. If you upgrade the packaging for that cookie, it seems to downgrade the work that goes into all the other cookies you do...they should all be packaged equally special. The price difference being the size of the cookie or the difficulty of the cookie. If they wish for the packaging to be upgraded....I would charge extra for it.

Thank you guys for all of your ideas and help! I really do appreciate it.

I love the idea of the clear box and the one khalstead mentioned. I tried to find something other than a pattern, more so in a solid color, and found some ivory and chocolate ones at jam paper and envelope. Nice site.

After thinking about it, I think for now I will take the advice of Montrealconfections and all4cake. I will offer extra packaging only if the client wants it, for an additional fee that is.

I finally got time to get the cookies up. Still working on getting up seasonal stuff.

Dreme - those masks are super fabulous! Great job! I'm sure your holiday designs will be great as well.

Keep moving forward is what I say! Onward and upward...icon_smile.gif
