Yesterday our friend Anne Sage posted our cookie recipe for Sweet Raspberry and Tahini Sandwich Cookies, and today Anne is on our blog sharing a fun and easy way to package those cookies for Valentines day! Take it away Anne!
Cork scrapbook paper is inexpensive, versatile, and readily available at most craft stores. I love the earthy yet refined look it imparts to any project! For this Valentine’s Day DIY we used cork paper to transform a heart-shaped sampler box into unique cookie packaging. To begin, remove the plastic liner tray from your sampler box. Apply glue to the outside of the box lid and press on cork paper to adhere. Repeat with base of box. Let dry completely, then trim edges with a craft knife. To secure treats inside box, cut several strips of colored card stock almost as wide as your box is deep. (For our 1″ deep box we cut strips 7/8″ wide.) Form the strips into circles the same diameter as your cookies and secure ends with tape. Optionally, add a Valentine’s Day message to the lid of the box using alphabet stickers. Fill your box with sweets and deliver to your sweetheart!
