Try these creative ideas for packing and presenting holiday cookies, using cellophane wrappers, decorated gift boxes, and more.
A mixed tin is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Line the bottom and sides of a square or rectangular airtight tin with corrugated paper. Fold short lengths in half for dividers.
Envelop your cookies in tissue paper, buffer them with corrugated paper tubes, or protect them using accordion-folds of red paper. You can also tie a stack of cookies with baker's twine.
Ordinary jewelry boxes make lovely receptacles for small batches of cookies. We lined a slender bracelet box with red linen trimmed with scalloping shears, then topped the liner with a half-dozen mini cookies. A pink heart-shaped doily, secured with a knotted piece of waxed red twine, completes the endearing package.
