Most of us use the green floral foam that is available at your local Dollar Store. Just trim the foam to fit whatever container you are using. You want to have a snug fit so the foam does not move around. You can also find cute containers at the Dollar Store while you are buying your foam.

Yup, thats what I use also. Leave enough room when you trim it to push your tissue down between the foam and the container.

just make sure your container is heavy enough to hold the cookies. They will make the container top heavy depending on the cookies size and weight of the container. You can use rice or beans then place the foam and then insert cookies and tissues. HTH

They sell that foam at the dollar store??? I've been paying like 4 bucks for a small cube at Jo-Ann's...
Guess I'll be going to the dollar store this week icon_biggrin.gif

I use the coupons and get a large sheet at the hobby stores for next to nothing and that is cheaper than the dollar store. The big sheet cost me around $3 and is a lot more than the little bricks.
