Today's So Simple packaging also begins with a kraft bag, and I'm using the flat, pocket-like bag that is available in a number of sizes. They're great for brownies, pretzels, crackers, soaps, seeds, or a crafty gift of die cuts and ribbon shares! So much fun!
I baked some M&M cookies for my kids and grandson - a little Valentine treat for them - and I wanted to package them in a sweet, simple way.
Don't you just love those little pink and red candies peeking out of all of that cookie goodness?
I know it's kind of OCD, but I like for the fold to be straight (and for them all to be the same), and my Scor-Pal helps with that.
To close the bags I stamped a full sheet of kraft, self-adhesive labels with a fun to/from stamp using Papertrey Ink's Tiny Treats: Valentine set and punched them out. They were the perfect size to help keep the cookies fresh and to keep them from escaping.
There are a number of ways to embellish these simple bags - they can be stamped or glittered or die cuts, ribbon, doilies, etc. can be attached...the list of ways to make them your own is endless! I prefer to maintain the rustic look of the bag, and I love to use baker's twine to add to that. I added a tag using Papertrey Ink's 2010 Love Tags stamp set, Limitless Lables and Love Lives Here dies and Vintage Buttons. It says exactly what I wanted it to say!
Here they all are, simple sweetness, just waiting for those special people that I love so much!
Thanks so much for visiting and for sharing So Simple with me! Stop back any time, and have a super day!
