These were so fun to make; the Kiddo loves to decorate the cookies and I love to see her creativity in action. The best part is that the cookies are delicious. I let her Continue reading →
Here is the promised goodie box/bag that you can put your wrapped cookies in and make a great Valentine’s Day gift. My daughter likes to give her best friends goodie bags and this is a great one. It would also be wonderful for wedding or holiday take-aways. Materials:
12″ x 12″ scrap booking paper (A stiff paper works best to hold the folds and stand up to the weight of the goodies.)
Ribbon or raffia
Measure 6″ in on both sides and make a mark.
Fold your sides into the center.
Measure and mark 5″ in from both edges.
Do the same on the other side. These are the fold marks.
Fold along the marked lines on both sides. this makes the bottom of the bag.
Place your finger on the closest fold line in the center and fold that point to the outside edge and crease. This is the hardest part. The thing to remember is to create a right angle with each corner.
This is the right angle to make the side of the box.
Do the same with all four corners.
This makes the sides and opening of the bag.
Match the top corners together.
Mark 2″ in on both sides
Use the hole punch to punch holes through both sides of the box at each mark.
Thread your ribbon or raffia through one side of the box and fill with goodies.
Thread the ribbon/raffia through the other side and tie a bow. I creased the sides inward for a cleaner look.
