I pack cookies in gussetted cellophane bags, then just cushion between each with a little square of bubble wrap, fill any spaces with styrofoam popcorn & double-box the whole shebang! I've never had one cookie break in transit yet.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I got 4 cookies to my nieces without breakage, but this is great to know for large cookie orders! thumbs_up.gif

I shipped 4 dozen awhile ago. They were fondant decorated. I bagged each cookie and put 2 dozen in each box.

I used cheap toilet paper, (unrolled so that it's very fluffy) under them and on top of them. I put the lid on the boxes and then put a layer of bubble wrap between the 2 boxes. I put them in another box with more fluffy TP all around the box. I then put that box into another box that had styro peanuts to fill up any empty space.

I mailed the box next day delivery. Not a cookie broke. It was expensive to mail, but it worked very, very well.

I ship to soilders every few weeks. I put the cookies in big gallon bags, seal them and suck as much air out as humanly possible, then stick that bag in another and do the same. I pad the box with plastic bags in every direction and pack it really tight.
