Christmas DIY

Tis the season for Holiday Soirées! I always love to take a gift from the heart when attending any party, especially during the holidays. While a bottle of bubbly is alway appreciated, I tend to get a bit of the baking itch in December. For UNDER $3, using supplies from the dollar store, you can wrap up your favourite batch of Christmas cookies and treat someone to a little “sugar, spice and all things nice”.


What You’ll Need

  • A festive cookie tin from the dollar store
  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ribbon
  • Your favourite cookies! Here is my recipe for Thumbprint Cookies which I baked for my class this week 🙂

What To Do

Bake your favourite cookies! Flip over the tissue paper so that pretty side (if it is printed) is facedown. Take the lid of the cookie tin off and flip the entire tin over. Trace the tin with a pencil on the tissue paper. Cut inside the circle so that the tissue paper circle is a bit smaller than the tracing. Place inside.


Add a layer of cookies and repeat the steps adding a layer of tissue paper and a layer of cookies.


Close the lid and wrap with ribbon!


They are ready to be delivered with a big smile! Happy baking 🙂
