The best gifts around the holidays are the ones you can nibble on. From homemade cakes and pies to cookies and candied nuts, it is always a veritable smorgasbord of treats from Thanksgiving all the way to New Year’s. This year, I am using a creative new way to package up my Christmas cookies. Instead of giving them in Tupperware or on a paper plate covered in Saran Wrap, I am dressing them up as gifts themselves in these DIY Christmas cookie wrappers.
- Cookies (This will work just as well with homemade chocolate chip cookies as it will with Candy Cane Joe Joes.)
- Wrapping paper (This is an awesome new design from Ikea.)
- Wax paper
- Scotch tape
- Gift tags
Step 1: Decide the number of cookies you are going to give in each wrapping, and cut enough wrapping paper and wax paper to cover each cookie stack.
Step 2: Wrap your cookie stack in wax paper and tape the ends. The goal is to seal it off much like you would find a roll of Ritz Crackers fresh out of the package.
Step 3: Wrap your cookie package in wrapping paper, being sure to align the design to your desired spot. Tape the wrapping paper closed around your cookie stack.
Step 4: Tie ribbons on each end of the cookie stack to make it look like a giant piece of candy.
Step 5: Add a gift tag and gift them to all your friends and family!
