Hi, anyone there tried any DIY packaging for your cookies?
Hi, Doriswilson, Congrats on making your first post. I look forward to many more to come!
Hi Doris! I have bought my cardboard and have lots of archives for doing them but still didn't have the time or don't still dare to! That's silly, but I'm still in the intenon. What about you Doris?
Hi Doris, I've tried all sorts of packaging over the years, some dreadful! I've settled on using chocolate-box style cushion padding layers, which I cut to size for pizza-box style brown boxes. I 'glue' the cookies in place on the padding, heatseal each layer into cellophane, then layer them up in the box with bubble wrap. I also put washi tape and tags on the boxes to make them look pretty. Then the gift boxes go in a postal box with packing peanuts.
Hi Doris, When I first started, a cake friend offloaded a massive stack of extra large cake boxes to me. I tried to hand cut them and tape them to fit, but the result looked unprofessional and took so much valuable time, I quickly resorted to store bought bags, heat sealing, and premade boxes of all sizes (since every order seems to need a different size box). For shipping, I just use the U.S. Postal Service's Priority Mail boxes, bubble wrap, and peanuts. I still have those massive cake boxes; perhaps its time to gift them down the line to someone who can use them...
