I need to make cookies for my friends daughter's birthday this week to pass out in pre school. They are twin girls and I want to put the cookie inside a clear bag, like cellophane (?) and then fold the top down, fold a piece of paper over both sides, if that makes sense, and have a saying on the front piece of paper, I hope this makes sense .. I would like it to say something about their birthday but not sure what .. would it make sense to just write Happy Birthday on them? Thanks for any help

Cellophane bags always look so pretty, and you can decorate with scrapbook paper like you said, or tie with a ribbon and a tag.

Instead of "Happy Birthday", I would put their names, and their ages, since its a gift from them, not to them.

sounds nice!
if you have cello-bags, I would heat seal them and use craft tape to put pretty paper or ribbon on
if you don't have the flat cellobags (and don't want to go to Micheals or other cake store) I would use the foldover sandwich bags with a ribbon tie.

I print my paper toppers on cardstock... (I use Powerpoint to make the design and squeeze as many on a page as possible)

here's my page with a couple examples:

Here is a link to a post from a few weeks back talking about making labels, in case it helps.

Jen-just wanted to say how much I like the 3 cookie collection in the business card boxes (all of your presentations are great!) What a nice way to receive some cookies!!
