Too Cute

Too Cute the Animal Planet TV show filmed a litter of longhair Chihuahuas at my house. The puppies belong to my sweet friend and breeder Teresa. I made cookies for the film crew and cookies for each of the puppies. I gave them Irish names and made shamrock cookies since they were born so close to St. Patrick’s Day.

Cookie Favors 101

One of my favorite things about cookies is packaging them up with cute ribbons and tags. I love wrapping presents and creating the WOW factor with a cute little gift.

Some of my online cookie friends have said they dislike wrapping favors with a passion.. I thought I would share a simple pictorial on how I do it and maybe it will help someone else.

1. I stick the tags to the bags while they are empty and flat. I use a glue dot or a photo mounting square.

2. i use a jewelry tree and taped a clothespin on one of the bars. a chip clip would work fine too.

3. I clip the bag onto the clothespin… This frees both my hands for tying on the ribbon. I use 2 coordinating ribbons on my cookies and tie a simple knot. Bows are hard for me to get uniform and use more ribbon.

One more tip, when I cut my ribbons, I wrap it around a book or picture frame that is the size of the ribbon I cut, I can cut several pieces at once, all the same size..

I hope this helps!
