Today Amelia (girl I nanny) wanted to make cookies to bring to her neighbors.
I am always up for baking!
Now my problem is that sometimes I am just too much of a craft/project perfectionist. I just can't give the neighbors cookies in a plastic baggie.
So here is what I came up with.
Now all I did was:
-buy take out boxes from michaels. $1.50 (used a coupon)
- use Microsoft word to type out whatever words you want to put on the label. I draw a circle the size of the punch I will be using around the words so I make sure they fit.
- then I print off the words and use a punch (2.5 inch circle) to get the perfect circle.
-I picked a cute piece of scrapbooking paper (from a paper pad which was $9.99) and punched out a larger circle (3 inch I think)
- I used a glue stick to stick the white paper with words onto the colorful scrapbooking paper.
- then I used hot glue to glue the whole label onto the take out box
I filled the boxes with the original nestle chocolate chip cookie recipe.http://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/18476/original-nestlÉ-toll-house-chocolate-chip-cookies/detail.aspx
I used the small oxo cookie scoop so they were tiny cookies and would fit in the box. And admit it....when you eat 5 tiny cookies it is way less calories then one normal sized one. ;)
I will upload the PDF for you to print tonight!
