This year I've baked more Christmas cookies than ever before. I decided to do my baking early and I got tons of cookies put up in the freezer. I give the cookie trays away as I think of people to give them to....like the bus drivers, the mail lady, neighbors, coaches, etc. I've given away so many little plates that I have to keep making more and more cookies. Great gifts though and I've enjoyed all the baking this year.
I made up a bunch of simple tags to tape on the top of the plastic wrapped plates. Super easy to make. I used the Baking Stamp Ensemble from Just Rite Stampers for the border and center to make the perfect tags for my plates. The stamped images were cut and embossed with a large Spellbinders circle die template. I paired the tags up with some October Afternoon Christmas paper, Papertrey Kraft cardstock and Vintage Cream twill ribbon.
Here's a little glimpse of my cookies this year, I tried lots of new recipes from a Better Homes and Garden cookie magazine.
I simply used little holiday plates and then double wrapped my cookies with plastic wrap. I attached the tags with Scotch tape on the backs. I gave away lots right away after baking and some went back into the freezer for when I see people next.
Hope your holiday season is going great! The girls are officially on Winter Break so I hope to wind down on my Christmas projects soon.
