I’m always on the lookout for cute packaging ideas that don’t break the bank. I found this idea in Picture Perfect Parties, which is a gem. It’s loaded with lots of creative and fun party food and presentation ideas.
The idea in the book was to hold olives inside the bag with a plastic liner, but I immediately decided the bag would be perfect as a vessel for homemade cookies and muffins. I can just drop them off, and the recipient can recycle the bag – no storage issue for either one of us!
And because I’m crazy about protecting my baked goods, I just layered plastic wrap sheets on top – you could also use parchment. So get yourselves some Kraft paper bags with handles – like these, and just cut off the top near the handles and roll down the rim of the bags. Fill with baked cookies or muffins and you’re done!
If you have time, you can also swipe on two coats of chalkboard paint (dry between coats) and label your goodies with a liquid chalk pen.
