10 Cookie Packaging Ideas
Cellophane treat bags are perfect to show off large and decorated cookies. Slide a biscuit inside and tie with a bow.
2) Craft Paper Bags
Brown craft paper bags are another stylish choice to gift edibles and emphasis the homemade look. There are no limits when it comes to decorating: use stamps and decorative tapes to adorn the bags. Customise the edges with craft punches, pinking shears, or decorative scissors. Close the bags with twine or mini cloth pins and gift tags.
3) Glass Jars
Put your cookies on display in shiny mason jars. We decorated the lid with a circle cut of decorative pattern, and tied a gift tag, candy cane, and twig to the jar.
4) Cookie and Crisp tins
Festive upcycling at its finest! Repurpose empty cookie or crisp canisters into a gorgeous cookie giftable. Glue sheets of decorative pattern to the tins (cans). This process is even easier when you print the pattern on self-adhesive paper. We also used gift tags to decorate the lids.
5) Apothecary Jars
Apothecary jars have a homey, vintage feel and are a great way to package biscuits up cute. The recipient can later reuse the jar to store other things. Your friends and neighbours will love this!
6) Mug, Cups, and Bowls
This one is a lovely two-in-one gift! Transform mugs, cups, and bowls into beautiful storage and a pop of colour with ribbon, mini bauble ornaments, and a gift tag. Simply, place the cup or mug in the middle of a large square of cellophane, gather the edges of the cellophane, and tie with a ribbon to secure.
Who doesn’t love a plate full of treats? Put cookies on a plate and package with cellophane and ribbon. And it doesn’t even have to porcelain, paper or plastic plates will do just as fine. Place the biscuits on a paper napkin to make it look even prettier.
8) Clear favour boxes and takeaway containers
Clean takeaway (take-out) container and clear favour boxes can be turned into a cosy container to showcase cookies and biscuits. Personalise the gift with a big bow and gift tag.
9) Cellophane Bags with a Decorative Insert
Present your treats in cellophane bags with a decorative insert. Print the decorative on cardstock or photo paper and cut a strip that will fit into the cellophane bag. Make two folds to create the front, bottom, and back. Insert into the bag, fill with confections, tie with a ribbon and adorn with a gift tag.
10) Decoupage Biscuit Box
Feeling a little more DIY? Decoupage plain wooden/craft/food boxes into a gorgeous cookie container with decorative paper. The box is a pretty keepsake for many years to come.
