day 23 – Planning a Cookie Exchange: Packaging

yesterday we talked about rules of the cookie exchange and today we will be talking about packaging your cookies. i mentioned that we did a little game of voting for best packaging last year and we will probably do it again this year, the ladies seemed to enjoy it!

31 days of party planning hosting a cookie exchange with the creative jayne2

last year i used old calendar pages and made small boxes for my cookies but oh-my-stars there are so many cute and clever options for cookies out there!!!!!
