My hubby is in the kitchen carrying out a tradition on my side of the family. For as many years as I can remember, my Italian grandmother and mother dusted off the pizzelle machine and made cookies for the holidays. Most of the cookies were given to neighbors, friends, and co-workers.
So, as my husband drops the dough onto the machine and presses the cookies, two by two, I am packaging them. Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to create packaging the showcases these beautiful, and delicious, cookies!
I started with the 6 x 17 Gusseted Cellophane Bags. It holds a dozen cookies nicely. The tag uses the Merry Little Labels stamp set. Don’t you think the “Eat, Drink, and Be Merry” sentiment is perfect? I embossed this in gold and backed it with Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Foil Paper and Foil Snowflakes. Then I created a tag with the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. It’s just so elegant. I wrapped it up with the gold 3/8-inch Metallic-Edge Ribbon.
A few of these products are retiring and won’t be available after January 2 – including the Foil Snowflakes, Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper, and the Merry Little Labels stamp set. Click on the graphics below to order these supplies before they’re gone!
Thanks for stopping by! I wish you could smell the aroma from those cookies. I might just have to steal one!
