Stripes, Polka Dots, Jars & Baked Goods – Homemade Gifts Galore


Sometimes I just don’t care what is inside a colorfully striped or polka dotted tin or a jar with a kaleidoscope of color adorned with a beautiful bow or animated tag. It usually just looks too incredible to even break the seal, right? Christmas is around the corner, and it’s all about the green and the red. I’m definitely excited about scoring some fun packaging, creating unique tags, and surprising my friends with scrumptious goodies. TastyPresentation_tip

Nothing warms the heart like a homemade gift. Making sure your homemade gifts look as good as they taste is easy when you use the right packaging. Don’t Let The Cookies Crumble Sturdy cookies like oatmeal, chocolate chip and bar cookies are best for mailing. To prevent crumbling, line a tin or cookie box with waxed paper. Then nestle cookies to within 1 inch of the top. Fill spaces with air-popped popcorn or bubble wrap. And always cool cookies completely before packing to prevent them from sticking together. Then place the tin or box inside a larger box and fill with crumpled paper, popcorn or bubble wrap to mail. Labels Matter Don’t forget to add a finishing touch to your gift by creating a special label. Adhesive labels make it easy.
