I know people package their cookies and tie them with a pretty ribbon, but wouldn't that soften and ruin the fondant?

I'm making flip-flop cookie favors soon and I'm afraid the straps won't hold up once bagged.

If you don't let your fondant dry/harden for a few hours then you will have a problem. If you wait a few hours or even overnight then bag the cookies, they should be fine.

I almost always individually bag my fondant covered cookies. It does not hurt them at all. I do wait as kaw123 suggests for a few hours before bagging them. If I keep them overnight, I layer them between wax paper in a plastic container with a lid, the container is not airtight. You can also freeze them, they come out just as nice as when you put them in. Thaw on the counter without unwrapping. I usually get mine out the night before. HTH

Mine were just fine. The bag didn't hurt the fondant at all. I waited a day to bag them.

Just adding my two cents..... the T-shirt cookies I did a few weeks ago had to be frozen because the soccer game was rained out. My daughter stored them in the freezer, in bags, thawed them and took them to the re-scheduled game and everyone loved them. Held up fine. No color bleeding or anything.
