Pretty Packaging

Packaging freshly baked cookies with stylish flair is as easy as 1-2-3!

1)  Wrap cookies in parchment or tracing paper.  Create a seal by stamping the postage design from Free Flight on Judi Kins Eclipse Tape with VersaMagic Ink (Turquoise Gem /Pink Grapefruit).  Tip/Hint: Place a small piece of Eclipse Tape on copy paper before stamping.  This will allow the tape to be trimmed with a circle punch and not get caught in the tool.  Remove the backing (copy paper) to create a repositionable medallion/seal.
2)  Stamp decorative borders from Puzzle Parts on transparent envelopes with Cotton White StazOn.  Insert wrapped cookies.
3)   Fold over the extending end of the envelope, punch two holes and tie with a ribbon.  Attach tags die cut with a Spellbinders Labels Ten, highlighted with VersaMagic Ink (Turquoise Gem/Pink Grapefruit) and stamped with sentiments from Sweet Wishes.

Voilà!  Your very own stylish pâtisserie packaging!
