Now that you’ve baked up a storm and have a full bakery’s worth of goodies in your home, it’s time to share the wealth. Give the treats in a paper Christmas cookie gift box made with scrapbook paper and cardstock. Your cookies will look stunning in this pretty packaging,
I used both scrapbook paper and cardstock for my gift box. The scrapbook paper is adorable, but it is flimsier than cardstock. If you need a very sturdy gift box, I suggest that you only use cardstock. I bought the baking-themed scrapbook paper at Joann, but I wasn’t able to find it online. If you can’t find it in your local store, I will include a cute alternative to this paper in the supply list below.
I used this design from Cricut’s collection to create this box. The file costs 99 cents but can be used over and over. You can even resize it to make different sized gift boxes depending on what treats you will be packaging up. I love the way the layered paper on the lid makes it look like there is a real bow on top!
I chose to cut my box so that it was four inches square. This is a great size for most round cookies. If you are baking cut-out cookies, you may need to adjust the file to suit your needs.
