Yep...that's pretty much it...lol. I just put it all together on the computer...I put my biz info upside down, centered above the image or greeting that will be on the front of the package, so that once it's printed and cut (I print 2 to a page) and then folded in half, the biz/contact info will be right side up on the back. Did all that make sense?? icon_confused.gificon_lol.gif I fold over the top of the bag about an inch to inch and a half (depending on how big the cookies are....you want a little space between the cookie and the bottom of the 'tag'), then place the card over that just to cover the part of the bag that's folded over, and attach. I just used the staples because I couldn't find my hole punch....I usually punch 2 holes and use a short length of ribbon to thread through them and tie on a bow. It's really an easy way to have them look professional when you're only giving a few cookies and not a full blown cookie boquet or basket. I try to coordinate the images on the tags with the theme of the cookies or holiday or the colors, at least. Thanks for the nice compliment! HTH! icon_smile.gif

Ok..A Bit of info before I post. These are cookies that I did for a fundraiser at my son's school. They were given three options 1: the 2, 5" personalized egg (nightmare!) 2: the box filled with the 6 cookies on the left and 3: a bouquet.

I may not get the most well decorated (tried to make them easy for quantity) but I think I am in the running for quantity. 288 5" eggs, 17 boxes, and 7 bouquets. IN A WEEK! Lesson learned let me tell you! My next fundraiser has 3 weeks between orders in and orders out!

Anyhoo....hopefully i will be able to make some that are more up to the beautiful standard presented here.....Those rain hat ducks are absolutely the cutest thing! All of the pictures are wonderful and I am so very impressed.

Keep your shorts one woman. I know I have some baking to do. I have just been really busy. Don't worry I will do something simply to keep you happy.

Thank you C_P for asking about my Mom. Actually I am only on to add to the thread in the Lounge, I need help with some stuff. Everyone has been great with prayers and thoughts, encouragement and help.

She is home and doing alright, her therapy starts Monday and her primary doc visit is Tuesday. Still hard for me but I have to focus on her recovery and be grateful it wasn't worse. The little one is good therapy for her.

Kind of you to ask my bestest cookie pal, I do appreciate it.























I am still on strike when I come back......

I finally got time to make my April shower cookies. I knew what I was going to do since the theme was first decided. Gave me a chance to try sunflower cookies. They are made with the no fail cookie recipe and Antonia 64's icing. I will be using this cookie arrangement minus the umbrella and raindrops for table centerpieces for a womens luncheon. I have to make 10. This is great for practice.

There are a few flowers done already for Spring.

What about things that start with the letter "M" for May, (cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, Medals {for those of us with school kids doing award ceremonies}, mortarboard {graduations}, mermaids {because I have a mermaid party to do for my daughter icon_lol.gif } to name a few)

Cookie Voyeur here. Waiting to see how cake princess, Antoinia , and all the others interpret the theme. All the cookies so far have been really great. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif
I cant wait to get my digital camera to work so I can try. It will probably be next month. icon_cry.gif
Here are schools May Bulletin Board Ideas. I dont know if that would be helpful.
(Spring, Kites, Wind, Mother's Day)> Are there saying for each month? I can think of some of them but are the some for all of them?
Just love the theme idea for the cookies! icon_biggrin.gif
