Boxes for cookie gifts - Page 3

post #31 of 66

i am shipping my cookie trees again this year and here are my boxes for packing and for the fudge

 

 

that's the tree with the foam lid on it and the gold fudge boxes fit right on top--

 

all fits into the medium mailer for one price shipping-- whew--

 

i'm hoping the foam and the bubble wrap will prevent the white chocolate decor from smearing on the ride west--

 

and please note the gingerbread man tape to really cap off the whole adventure --

 

and i just wanna show you my fudge--it smells so dang good and i've not had one taste...

 

because i've eaten too much gingerbread already-- hahaha

 

this is a 12 x 12 pan mmmmmmm -- be still my beating

beautiful trees, and what nice gifts you sent. ( I had a piece of fudge so you didn't have to.)

Those cheapy ones are cute but I learned.... TAPE the bottom together when you form them and then they work great! 4 pieces of tape, one at each "joint" and you are good to go!

johnson6ofus:  thank you for the tip ;-D

I bought the one piece cookie boxes (they are always a little squiffy and flopping around.  I use them for jumbo cupcakes.  the 6" x 6" holds 4, the 6" x 10" holds 6,  just perfect height also.

 

Anyhow I put some tape on the inside where the two flaps come together (sort of). Just two pieces of tape and tt really stiffened up the box. Nice and solid.  Thanks so much for sharing.  You'd think I could figure all these things out for myself but my brain is too full of snakes & snails & puppy dog tails & sugar & spice.

Amazing what two, three or four small pieces of tape can do for the structure of a box!

I thought I'd report back. I went with the 7x7x4 light brown box with the window. I'm glad I got the ones with the window! I baked 9 different kinds of cookies and everything fit perfectly. I had three layers of different types of cookies (stacked) but it didn't look sloppy at all. Thanks for your suggestions everyone!

P.s. k8 I love the pic of the fudge with the can of Diet Coke in the picture. Lol!

For the recipients who got the "large" cookie package (i.e., 18 shortbreads, 18 oatmeal, and 12 Innsbruck Dream Bars), I used the large Berry Plastics food-gift buckets with handles from The Container Store (7" high, 8 1/2" lid diameter, at $1.99 each); they were a bit cheaper than the squat ones shaped like traditional cookie tins, and had better looking color/decoration schemes. The one that went in the mail needed a couple square feet of large bubble wrap for a snug fit, and a few more square feet to secure it within the smallest shipping box that could accommodate it.

For the recipients who got the "small" cookie package (i.e., 12 shortbreads, 12 oatmeal, and 6-7 Innsbruck Dream Bars), I used holiday-decorated GladWare (if I remember right) containers in the "Big Bowl" size (package of 3 for something like four or five bucks at Target). Which was just big enough, requiring no packing material (but the two that went in the mail required a fair amount to secure them in the shipping boxes).

In all cases, I used separate quart zip-top bags for each of the 3 types of cookies.

Huh...me, too. What a coincidence. :detective:
