I received my 2nd cookie order and am truly excited! I havent made a cookie bouquet before, but this order she wants 7 cookies in a bouquet, that are Bratz.
She asked what type of thing the bouquets are put into, and I just told her a terra cotta pot or a coffee mug. Something sturdy and heavy that I can also add rocks into to weigh it down...right? She wanted to know if I could put it inside some "roll purse" that she saw at Party City. I have NO CLUE!

HELP! I want something cute to put them into that is kinda "Bratz" theme. Any ideas?

I'd go to the dollar store and look for something a bit glitzy, a pot or something else that you can use. I never put anything heavy at the bottom of my pots, but I usually use terracotta, which are heavy enough by themselves. You can also jazz up any plain pot or bucket with glittery ribbons in the right colours.
No idea what a roll purse is, but actually, a bouquet inside a purse could be really cute. You could put a pot inside to keep it heavy and steady, but disguise it with tissue. (my brain is ticking now... thanks!!)

I have put one in a purse. I put pinto beans in the bottom to steady it. Use sticker paper and print what you need off the computer to decorate the pot. (if you don't use the purse).

I wonder if you could stick a terra cotta pot inside the purse and stick something around it like tissue paper or something to hide it???

She gave me a link to the "roll purse" she is talking about, and it might actually work (this one is high school musical, but there is a bratz one too I guess) since it looks like metal.

What do you all think? Since I am just beginning, I am selling my cookies right now for 1/2 off, $2 each an additional $6 for any cookie bouquets. So this is going to cost her $20 for a 7-cookie bouquet. Do you think with her request on this $7 purse that I should either tack on MORE to the price (or let her buy it)...since I was just planning on a cheap decorated terra cotta pot?

I think I am already giving her a deal, since she wants 2 of the cookies to be Bratz faces (detail work), then a number 7, and 2 lips then 2 shoes or purses. (alot of different cookies, which I have to make each cutter)

If you have to shop for it, you charge her for it. If she brings it to you then just charge your regular $6.
