Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with Strings

It's time to start packaging the cookies and giving them away!

I love to put together cute little packages for teachers and friends and neighbors.

This year, I kept it pretty simple.

I got these brown paper boxes from Layer Cake Shop. They're perfect for holding just a couple of cookies.

The stickers are punched from old cards and magazines and then put through my Xryon.

I've been into making gigantic fabric yo-yos this year too. If you haven't tried making yo-yos, they're easy. Here's a link to some instructions.

For other / fancier packaging ideas, I recommend visiting wedding blogs and looking for DIY favors. You'll find lots of ideas that can easily be adapted for Christmas. Here are some of my favorites:
