This has been pretty popular around Pinterest, and is definitely something I will be using tonight when I start my holiday baking fun with my kiddos.
Pringles cans for packaging your cookies – and the best part about this is that even if you don’t have a pringles can, they are very affordable to purchase, AND you get to eat the pringles first 🙂 There is also a smaller version of the original can so you can make even more to share.
All you need is the pringles can, double sided tape (or you can use glue of any type), wrapping paper (you can even have you kids draw on a piece of regular paper white or colored (this makes it extra special for grama and grampa), and of course any style ribbon, twine etc.
Here are a few photos of some cute ones I found on Pinterest. Some have more than the items I described above – just use your imagination and go with it.
If you would like to see step by step on these pringles cans – check out this video I found on YouTube.
Because I am a HUGE LOVER of Mason Jars, I think this one is pretty cool too. Let’s face it, treats come in a variety of sizes and shapes so the pringles can might not be the best fit for all. Even just a ribbon around the neck of the jar and a cheap bow on top makes these very adorable. I think I am going to use this one for our Peanut Butter Balls. Will posts pics of my own designs as soon as we do them.
I showed you a picture of this in my last post but will share again. Perfect for things like Muddy Buddy Treats, pretzel mixes, caramel popcorn etc.
Similar to the pringles can – you can upcycle a soup can or any kind of can. Make sure to use the kind that are NOT sharp on the inside (Bad lesson learned when using these for a different project)
Just about any dollar store has cute coffee mugs – so give this one a try..and here is the link to make these exact and perfect treats for a coffee mug. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/white-chocolate-cashew-coffee-biscotti-10000000833343/
As always – have a BEAUTIFUL DAY!
