Sometimes it's all about the Packaging

I recently made some surfboard cookies for a little friend's luau birthday party.

And they were ok. But when I packaged them up...I loved them!

Sometimes it's all about those little finishing details. What's your favorite way to present cookies? I'm always looking for good ideas.

I used brown sugar for the sand when I did it. Graham cracker or cookie crumbs would be great, too! I didn't even think of that.

Brown sugar is easier! I absolutely love your beach themed cookies. Thank you for sharing.

I'm a sucker for cute packaging! I've done this before for chocolate chip cookies. I found the idea on pinterest. (My other addictive site)

Those beach boards are super cute, and the packaging just makes them even more perfect! I love them!

I like trying to find ways to package treats, too. I found some cute boxes at a dollar store (I think it was Family Dollar). I've used them for cake balls and cookies:

They were the perfect size to hold about 5 or 6 3" cookies, stacked on top of each other.

All this cake, and I've gained too much weight. LOL! I am now....The Cake Runner!

If you do a lot of cookie gifts for neighbors, teachers, etc., I LOVE these kraft boxes from Papermart.

A simple ribbon or even a strip of fabric tied in a bow, and it looks so pretty!

I use them for Christmas cookies, for boxed lunches at parties (like in the picture), for sending lunch to school when my daughter needs something entirely disposable for a field trip, and more.
