To make the process of fabulous packaging EVEN EASIER for you, there are quite a few free printables to share with you. I’m going to list them all here, then again with the projects they go with below:

Cookie Exchange Packaging Idea #1: Poinsettia Topped Boxes

Seriously, I am in love with these paper poinsettias. You can find the tutorial on how to make them here. But if you don’t have the kind of time it takes to make the poinsettias yourself, find a few Christmas flowers at the craft store to use instead.

Materials:

  • Pre-made boxes
  • Parchment paper

The boxes can be found at most craft stores this time of year–or online at somewhere like Nashville Wraps.

Personally, as a matter of style, I like to line my cookie boxes with parchment paper orNeed a few ideas on how to wrap up your cookies? Click for these great cookie exchange packaging ideas!

This is seriously the quickest to make with the most style. You can find the Bio-Pak take out boxes on Amazon in bulk–they are totally handy to have around–or Nashville Wraps carries them in smaller quantities.

After you have your box filled, all you have to do is wrap the box one time around with the washi tape. Print the free printable 2 inch Christmas circles to full sheet label paper, then punch the circles out with a 2 inch scrapbook punch. Place the 2 inch circle in the center of your box and it’s ready for the cookie party.

I used the small boxes here as they are plenty big for half a dozen cookies. They make larger sized boxes, and for that I have included a free printable for a large rectangular label in this post that will look great on top!

Cookie Exchange Packaging Idea #3: Clear Tubes

Again, super easy to execute and requires next to no craftiness. This packaging is best for cookies that are consistently less than 2 inches around and can be stacked or for something like bon bons or truffles. I put buckeyes in mine, and the tubes fit about 9 per tube.

Materials:

Fill your cylinders with cookies or treats, then seal the top with a piece of washi tape over the top. Print the labels out to full sheet label paper and cut out then they’re ready to go!

Cookie Exchange Packaging Idea #4: Paper Plate Boxes

These paper plate boxes do take a little bit of time to make, but they’re not complicated. You could do without the cellophane bag in this set up, but I think it’s easier to keep the cookies in one place this way!

Materials:

  • Red paper plate
  • Black and white ribbon
  • Red sparkle ribbon
  • Cellophane bag

First up, you’re going to cut a few slits in the paper plate. Use the photo above as a reference! You’ll need two sets of slits a few inches from each other. I cut them from the edge to where the circle on the inside of the plate starts and tried to center them around the middle of the plate. After you cut the slits, you’ll need to fold the plate along where the slits line up. This will make the bottom of the box.

Crafty note: be sure you’re doing your folding so the colored part goes to the outside. Most colored paper plates are only colored on one side.

You have two more folds to make! These will be perpendicular to the last set, and should be made at the bottom of the cuts you made in the last step as shown in the picture above.

After you make both folds, you’ll be able to easily bring the sides of the box up so you’ll have four walls and a bottom. The two flaps should overlap each other on the sides; you’ll want to use hot glue to adhere them together.

After the glue is dry, your box will be ready to fill! The cookies I used in these boxes weren’t very big, so putting a little paper shred in the bottom of the box kept them from being swallowed in the bottom of the container. For extra fancy dressing on your paper plate box, band it with a black ribbon, and use one of the free printable Christmas labels for the front.

Place your cookies in a cellophane bag tied with a ribbon before you place in the box and your cookie packaging will be complete.
