I did a search to see if this question had been asked before, but found nothing.
I usually do cookie bouquets with the cookies individually wrapped.
For VDay, I am doing assorted cookies in a "Chinese Takeout" container and other thin cardboard containers. I would like to put tissue in the boxes but I'm not sure if that is food safe. Will the colors run? Do I put tissue first, then wax paper and THEN the cookies only touch the wax paper? I don't want the containers to have "grease" stains on the outside and I was really trying not to double package them by putting them in a clear pastic bag first. Any suggestions?

regular tissue paper is not food safe. you could buy some food safe tissue paper though from online retailers.

what about using parchment paper?

I thought about that, or wax paper. I guess I'm going to have to look for some colored food safe paper. If anyone knows where to find it, please share.

try nashville wraps. i've ordered things from there before and am happy with the service. they have live people to chat with if you have questions. i have never ordered the food safe tissue, but i have seen it on the site.

you can get glassine doilies, they are decorative and grease resistant, but costly.

I also love Nashville Wraps, although they have a minimum order of $25.

The WEBstaurant Store has clear plastic cookie bags (5.5x5.5) in a box of 2000 for under 20.00. With your cookies in those, you could then fill with shred or regular tissue.

If you need something soon use cookie tray bags cut up just big enough to line your box.

If you have The Container Store near you they sell waxed tissue paper in red dots, red check and multi stripe that I use for my cookie boxes.

Hi all, do any of you guys have any suggestions for packaging chocolate covered oreos? I have my spinning leaf molds & transfer sheets - but I need help in the packaging department!

Thanks in advance,

Kim
