We just got these amazing take home boxes in, and the first thing I thought when I saw them was how perfect they are for the holidays! There are so many ways to use them, but this week I’m going to show you how to decorate them as cookie gift boxes.
If you are looking for last minute gift ideas, decorated cookie boxes can make adorable gifts to give neighbors, friends and teachers. They also fit right in at a holiday cookie exchange party, where you and guests can DIY them on the spot, or you can decorate them beforehand for guests to use when taking home a sampling of delicious holiday treats. You could even personalize each box by adding a gift tag. Below are the ideas of the gift box decorating.
Decorated Cookie Gift Boxes
1. What You Need:
- take home boxes
- baker’s twine (optional)
First you’ll want to bake up some homemade holiday treats to box up. If you’re looking for a new recipe, check out our favorites from our cookie board on Pinterest! Use fun napkins to line the inside of the box and stack up your yummy cookies inside. For this cookie box, I used the Apple Red Bog Dots Cocktail Napkins and the Vertebra Medium To-Go Box. Once the cookies are inside, let the decorating begin!
I tied up the cookie box with green and white baker’s twine. I love using baker’s twine because it evokes that old-fashioned bakery charm and reminds me of fresh-baked goods. Wrap the twine around the box a few times and tie it tightly on top. Now comes the part that will take you back to your childhood…paper snowflakes! If you’re like me, you’ve forgotten how to make those classic paper snowflake cutouts so here’s the tutorial I used to refresh my memory. If you want to make smaller snowflakes like I did here, after you make your 8.5 x 11 paper into a square, cut it into four smaller squares and follow the same steps. When your snowflakes are complete, cut a long piece of ribbon (I used red 3/8″ in. satin edged organza ribbon). Lay a paper snowflake on top of the box and tie the ribbon in a bow to keep the snowflake in place. Your decorated cookie gift box is complete!
Here, Heart-shaped gift boxes are great ideas for romantic and unique present decoration and presentation. Heart shaped gift boxes are versatile. You can present Valentine’s Day gifts and Mothers Day presents in heart-shaped gift boxes or create impressive gift basket for Christmas and birthdays.
2. How To Make Heart-Shaped Gift Boxes Of Paper
1. Create or print out a heart temple for your gift box.You need two hearts,the larger heart is for the inner top of the box,and the smaller is for the bottom. trace the two heart shapes onto 4-ply matte board.
2.Cut two 1-inch strips of poster board, enough to fit around the circumference of the two hearts. Apply glue with the glue gun to the edges of the hearts, shaping it as you work your way around the heart perimeter to create the side of the gift box.
3. Decorate the top and bottom in your favorite style using buttons and beads, ribbons and paper flowers or leaves, lace and embroidery, appliqués or simple small branches. Hearts decorations on your gift boxes are gorgeous Valentine’s Day ideas. Cut out two large hearts from the poster board using decorative edges. Affix one of the hearts to the top of the gift box, and one to the bottom.
4. Make a heart-shaped cutout from decorative paper and place inside. Fill the gift box with candies or cookies and top with a heart-shaped liner. You can add a love note, a cheerful or funny message on the top and a few sprinkles of glitter and beads for extra charm.
Use heart templates to make colorful hearts decorations that spread love on Valentine’s Day. Decorate heart-shaped gift boxes with patterned paper, sprinkles or glitter, beads and ribbons, paper flowers or leaves, lace and embroidery, appliqués and small branches.
