Christmas Party Cookie Gift Bags

Each year, as a little gift for our Christmas party guests, I make cookie gift bags.  This year I found these cute Christmas “take-out” boxes at Michael’s.  I wrote each guest’s name on white construction paper and mounted it on green felt that I had left over from Annabelle’s Felt Christmas Tree.

Cookie Bags (2) 2012One of the cookies I make each year are Martha Stewart’s Chewy Molasses-Spice Cookies.

Molasses Spice CookiesAfter you make the dough, you roll the dough into balls…and THEN…roll the dough in sugar.  I mean.  They taste a little bit like a gingersnap.  Yum.

Cookie Bags (3) 2012This weekend we packed away all our Christmas decorations, and while I am very (very, very, very) happy to have my little house back in order…I have to admit, it looks a little sad now.  Does anyone else feel like their home look a bit dull now that you’ve taken down all your decorations?

  1. Love these boxes! We always do bags but these are such a cute change. Need to head over to Michael’s :-)

  2. Yes the house does seem dull without the Christmas decorations, but after having all the decorations out for almost a month I get to feeling that the dust is piling up in all the nooks and crannies that I haven’t been able to reach! Once I take everything down I tell myself that it is boring, but clean!

  3. I was just thinking this morning as we packed away the last of the decs how bare the house looked. Like Janet says though, it is nice to be able to clean through. Also we have a new focus in the house this year. My boy starts High School this year and we are turning the little “play room” into a serious young man’s study. (gulp)

    What a wonderful idea! I love to Christmas back but do not want to have all of the baking in the house. I just don’t need the calories but I so love cookies. I love this idea of decoratively packaging the cookies as take-away gifts! ~Thea

  5. Very snazzy!!! Excellent and creative idea :)
