I'm clueless on how to do it, but I can suggest that you pm the person who posted the photo and ask.

You can buy a shrink wrap kit at Michael's craftstore that comes with clear shrinkwrap and a heat gun.You basically wrap the entire bouquet and then add heat to shrink it close to the cookies..without torching them or melting them I hope..HA!HA!

I don't know how that person did it but I actually have a shrink wrap machine in my garage~~think like the meat department at the store--only without the styrofoam tray.

There's probably other little machines & stuff to do it--different kinds of machines & techniques I mean.

Isn't there one where you use a hair dryer with the right kind of plastic?

Different ways to do it.

Just some shrinking thoughts for you.

Wow! Thanks for all the replies! I think I've heard of doing it with a hair dryer but, not 100% sure.

I'm gonna google it and see what I can find out.....

I guess I should just PM the person's pic I'm reffering too. Duh! Why didn't I think of that....lol

Thanks again....

I've heard of the hair dryer method, just not sure of the type of plastic though. I'll bet someone at Michael's/JoAnn's knows though!

I have only seen those ones at WalMart and the dollar store that you use to wrap gift baskets and you use a hair dryer to seal them. I would look at Michael's (like already mentioned) for the kit.

I know I've asked before, and it was brought to my attention that not ALL shrinkwrap is food safe. There is some that is food safe, I had to look it up online (long time ago, don't remember where I found it, but you can google). I think that would be an important thing to remember. I found some at Walmart and it was NOT food safe, I'd think Joann's and Michaels might not be eitehr. HTH.

I've shrinked wraped cookies before. I took some some shrink wrap from micheals and I sealed the cookie with my food saver. (just sealed not air vacumed)

Then I used a hair drying to shrink it, you have to poke a small hole in the shrink wrap so the air can escape.

I have a picture in my photos

I've used the shrink wrap from Micheal's (if you use this kind, don't forget that it's double layered on the tube) and a hair dryer set on LOW. I cut the wrap big enough so that it went entirely around the cookie, placed it on the table with the cookie face down on top. Then I gathered the wrap to the center of the back, placed a small piece of tape to hold everything together, and used the hair dryer to give it a quick seal. Give your cookie a quick once over with the dryer, but be careful to not point the dryer nozzle directly on the cookie for too long. I broke a couple of cookies by shrinking too much because I didn't realize how fast it works - 2 maybe 3 seconds.
