Today's post is all about presentation. Do you ever get more wrapped up in the presentation of something than you do with giving the actual gift? I feel like that happens to me a lot. I just love cute things so much.
I was thinking the other day about how if I were a mom, I would spoil the crap out of my kid's fellow students (I know that's easy for me to say now). So then I came up with this little project, strictly based on cute presentation. I figure baked goods are always a cheap and thoughtful thing to hand out to people, so I realized that even if I'm just handing someone a single cookie, I could distract them with cute packaging and it would be a lot more meaningful.
So here's the plan:
1. Bake a batch of medium to large sized cookies.
2. Put them into cute treat bags.
3. Fold the top of the bags over and punch two holes into them.
4. Tie some twine through.
5. Slap a cute label on.
But first, procure the supplies:
Bags & Twine
I got these bags & twine, in many colors, from Pick Your Plum. If they aren't available on that site when you need them, you can also find the bags here and twine here.
I found these Avery round kraft labels on Amazon for only 10 bucks for 225 labels. That's a lot of treat bags! I downloaded the free template, downloaded some free fonts from dafont.com & printed them out. The hardest part of this was trying to think of something witty to write on the labels.
Now go wow the socks off of your fellow room moms or co-workers.
